Living with acne is tough at any age but especially as you move into your adult years. Adult acne is more common than you might think with over 50% of women and over 20% of men suffering with acne at some point in their adult lives.
The worst time to have an acne breakout or a zit appear is when you’re getting ready for a night out or there’s an event coming up and what-do-you-know a spot appears as if from nowhere!
Sure makeup can help hide acne spots but certain makeup or the way in which it is applied can actually enhance the appearance of the spot so apply with caution.
There’s no good time to have an acne breakout so here’s 4 ways in which you can help improve the appearance of acne.
1 ~ Use ZENMED Botanical Acne Mask
This fabulous product should be used throughout your weekly skincare routine but this skincare product can also be used as a spot treatment. The botanical acne mask dries out pimples fast, calms redness, and shrinks the size. It even reduces the healing time. If you have enough time then apply it to your spot and leave it on overnight and if you are low on time then apply some to the spot and leave it on to work its magic while you’re out having fun.
2 ~ Get to know your skin tone
If you don’t already know your skin tone then pop into a beauty store or beauty department and speak to one of the trained beauty professionals there. They will be more than happy to help you out in most cases even if you don’t purchase anything. Once you know your true skin tone then choose a mineral based powder foundation and apply using a makeup brush evenly across your face.
Mineral makeup is mainly made of zinc oxide, a well-known skin healing ingredient. Plus it provides an all-natural sunscreen agent automatically.
3 ~ Layer up
Start off with a oil free corrector as a base, then apply an oil free mineral foundation and then apply an oil free concealer. Do this and you will greatly reduce the signs of spots and acne.
Male or female this is a great way to hide blemishes as long as you apply gently with a brush and match your skin tone; no one will even know you’re wearing makeup.
4 ~ Distract and attract
Distract attention from the area where your pimple is located and attract someone's gaze to another part of your beautiful face. For example; if your pimple/s are located on your forehead then choose a daring colored lipstick or if your spot is located on your chin then choose a neutral color lipstick and pay more attention to your eye makeup. If you’re a guy then make sure you dress well and smell good and they won’t even notice a thing.
Use these simple tips to help you improve the appearance of acne and you can attend any future event with total skin confidence.
