Conceal and Correct: 3 Top Concealers and Foundations for Acne-Prone SkinMay 11, 2016
Between flare-ups, lingering blemishes, and the redness that so often accompanies unwelcome pimples, when it comes to achieving a flawless-looking complexion, acne-prone skin doesn’t always have it so easy. If you have acne, chances are concealers and foundations are always within arm’s reach to hide blemishes in a hurry. When it comes to hiding acne, you’ll want to reach for products that glide on smoothly and avoid formulas that can aggravate your skin—potentially leading to more breakouts. Here we share three concealers and foundations that can help camouflage breakouts on acne-prone skin so you can put your best face forward. The kicker? They can all improve the appearance of your skin while they help you cover up!
