How is it that zits and pimples only seem to pop up whenever they're least wanted, like before a big presentation or first date? If you've got a blemish that you need to hide and heal quickly, you're in luck. The right beauty products can clear up skin fast while covering unsightly spots.
If your skin is prone to acne, the best thing you can do is prevent breakouts before they begin. Each morning and evening, use a gentle, soap-free cleanser that won't irritate skin, which can exacerbate acne problems. Don't use any products that are too harsh, as these can strip skin of essential oils and lead to more breakouts. Follow up your washing routine with an acne moisturizer to keep skin hydrated and healthy.
To cover up the blemishes you already have, try a concealer that contains acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. This chemicals kill acne-causing bacteria and help clear skin up, quickly. Plus, they'll conceal your zits while you wait!
After applying cover-up, use a powder foundation and a finishing veil to even out skin and prevent concealer from melting off.
