Chill out...relax...calm down. As in "Go powder your nose or something (for a guy, too) and CALM THE FUCK DOWN"
"Dude, WTF?! Are you on the rag or something? We were TOTALLY kidding. Go take a powder and your beer'll be here when you get back"

Stop bothering me and/or relax yourself, specifically by taking a break in the powder room. There you can put some talcum on your face to cool off. See go take a swim and fly a kite. Old fashioned.
