Cover Up Acne Scars and Marks With These 5 Foundations
Once a breakout clears, you might be left with discolored marks or scars, i.e. hyperpigmentation. If you choose to conceal these areas, we recommend reaching for a full-coverage foundation that can help smooth out uneven texture and even tone. Ahead, we’re sharing five foundations that can help conceal the look of acne-related marks and scars.
This formula gives a full-coverage finish that lasts up to 24 hours. We like that it’s non-comedogenic and surprisingly breathable. It helps conceal redness, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and dark spots, and protects your skin with broad-spectrum SPF 50.
This luxe foundation has a lightweight, semi-matte finish that stays put for up to 24 hours and is totally transfer-resistant. Available in 40 shades, it offers breathable, buildable coverage with the added bonus of SPF 26.
These drops are a great option for covering acne scars, thanks to their high coverage. They smooth out uneven skin texture and minimize the appearance of current blemishes, too. The more coverage you desire, the more drops you can add.
Want a full-coverage foundation that won’t budge an inch? This radiant formula lasts for up to 24 hours, which makes it great for concealing acne scars and marks all day. We also love that it’s comfortable, breathable and won’t cake or crease.
A crowd-favorite CC cream, this formula was designed to color-correct and minimize the appearance of large pores, bumps or scars. It also contains SPF to help you avoid sun-induced hyperpigmentation (provided you wear the proper amount of sunscreen underneath, too).
