skincare advice needed ASAP!!!

i have sensitive, acne-prone combination skin. i get serious breakouts from stress-- i'm just getting over one that hit me at the start of this week. i also have a cast party tomorrow night, which i'll obviously be wearing makeup for. a lot of my blemishes turned into scabs and/or dry patches that keep coming back no matter how many times i exfoliate.  i've been putting neosporin on the scabs, washing normally, and using my regular oil-free moisturizer. my plan is to bump up my regime by exfoliating with oatmeal and cinnamon (to kill bacteria) today, but is there anything else i can do on short notices *and* a tight budget? preferably all-natural remedies, but i'll take anything at this point. my main goal is to buff my skin down enough that my makeup looks smooth, but healing quicker would also be nice.

You can also try natural African black soap ($5) it did me wonders! And you can use the Lush mask of magnaminty every 3 days. It really helps with calming and clearing acne
