There are multiple products advertised for reducing ‘Asian Flush’ but there is little scientific evidence supporting these products. Many people are concerned about the cosmetic implications of Alcohol Flush Reaction. For this reason, products are marketed as a quick fix tool to ‘cure’ Asian Flush or Asian Glow, which is a sign of inaccurate marketing claims.

A common misconception, taking Pepcid should be avoided
Sometimes individuals take Pepcid AC or other antacid medication prior to drinking to avoid the redness of Alcohol Flush Reaction. This is unhealthy and should be avoided. While Pepcid may act as an anti-histamine to reduce the flushing, it does not reduce acetaldehyde and has other detrimental effects. Those who consistently take Pepcid and drink alcohol are at high risk of developing stomach ulcers as continued use promotes increased production of stomach acid, as does alcohol consumption. It is recommended you avoid taking Pepcid or a similar antacid and drinking alcohol. More information can be found describing the negative interactions with alcohol here: PubMed
