How to Hide Acne How to Hide Acne

Overview

While you are treating your acne, you can use several makeup tricks to hide the pimples. However, you need to use the right products to do this to prevent future breakouts. Choosing the wrong kind of makeup can clog your pores and lead to more blemishes. Avoid caking on makeup to hide acne, because this will give your skin an unnatural appearance.

Step 1

Wash your face with an exfoliating cleanser. Before you apply any products to hide acne, treat the underlying problem with exfoliating cleanser.

Step 2

Dab a small amount of oil-free concealer on your problem areas. Dab the area with your finger to mask the acne. For the concealer, you can use the same shade as your skin tone or a shade lighter, for maximum effect.

Step 3

Apply oil-free foundation using a moderate amount and blending outwards so that you cover the entire face. Use a makeup sponge to apply the foundation and use a tissue to wipe away excess foundation if it looks cakey.

Step 4

Apply powder to finish up your look and hide the acne. Powder can absorb excess oil on the skin that could be causing the acne breakouts. The powder will also set your makeup, and help it stay on longer. If you don't wish to use a powder, help absorb excess oil from the skin by choosing a mineral-based foundation.
