These Foundations Make It Easy to Cover Up Acne Scars and Marks
Once a breakout clears, you might be left with discolored marks or scars, also known as hyperpigmentation. If you choose to conceal these areas, we recommend reaching for a full-coverage foundation that can help smooth out and cover up acne marks and make an uneven skin tone look more balanced. Keep scrolling to discover five foundations that help to flawlessly conceal the look of acne-related marks and scars.
This formula won over the hearts of our editors for a reason: it delivers. We like that it’s full-coverage yet non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog pores) and surprisingly breathable. It helps conceal redness, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and dark spots all while protecting your skin with broad-spectrum SPF 50.
If you require your foundation to be full-coverage, breathable and lightweight, consider this Valentino option. It checks off all of those boxes and more – it’s formulated with an ultra-light powder that can absorb up to three times its own weight, leaving behind a soft, semi-matte finish
As the name suggests, this formula gives you all the control. The more coverage you desire, the more drops you can add. Not only do the drops hide the appearance of current breakouts, but they also smooth out uneven skin texture for a blemish-free complexion that looks just like real skin.
Formulated to stay put, this foundation pick won’t cake, crease or budge throughout the day. Instead, it feels comfortable, breathable and is great for concealing acne scars and marks for hours.
A real crowd-pleaser, this CC cream was designed to color-correct and minimize the look of large pores, bumps and scars. It contains SPF to help you avoid sun-induced hyperpigmentation (provided you wear the proper amount of sunscreen underneath, too!)
