BLENDING IN: EXPERT TIPS ON HOW TO CAMOFLAGE UNTIMELY SKIN IMPERFECTIONS

It’s the night before your big event, and as luck would have it, your skin is not behaving properly.

Cancelling is not an option, but camouflaging the imperfections certainly is.

To the rescue: ZO Skin Health Offects® Correct & Conceal. This targeted spot treatment helps eradicate acne and is tinted for light or medium skin tone to conceal blemishes. It’s a win-win. Dr. Zein Obagi recommends cleaning the skin thoroughly before applying Correct & Conceal. Then, he says, cover the entire area with a thin layer of product one to three times per day. Start slowly with just one application a day as excessive dying of the skin may occur, he warns. “Gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed,” he says. “If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.”

Other ways to camouflage any blemishes or imperfections include:

Taking a Tip or Two From The Pros

Many professional make-up artists also have their own hacks on how to cover up a blemish, smooth skin tone and/or neutralize skin discolorations. Their secret: corrective color. For example, a green corrector neutralizes the redness of rosacea or broken blood vessels, while orange neutralizes dark brown spots or hyperpigmentation.

Refocusing the Eyes

If a pimple has taken up residence your forehead, apply bright red lipstick to divert eyes to your lips. It never fails!

Protecting While Covering

While covering up imperfections is important, never sacrifice sun protection. Many sunscreens do double duty – protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and evening out skin tone. For example, Oclipse® Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30 features a universal tint, serving as both a sunscreen and a primer.

All of these trouble-shooting tips can help your skin look its best on your big day or night, but if your skin is breaking out repeatedly, your rosacea is flaring more often or your sun spots or age spots become bothersome, see a dermatologist to discuss all of your treatment options.
