It’s always a confidence knock when you suffer from acne. And even though a high proportion of people suffer from spots in their adult life, sometimes you feel like you’re the only one. There are loads of ways to cover up your spots, but you have to be careful not to make them worse at the same time. 

We all know that your should never squeeze your spots in order to hide them. However, it’s easy to make so many other errors which can make you break out in more spots. With this in mind, here are some ways to cover those spots without making them worse!

Use a concealer with clean hands

A lot of people head for the concealer aisle when it comes to hiding away those spots. After all, it’s the best way to hide nasty breakouts. But a lot of people make the mistake of applying the concealer and then blending it with their hands without cleaning them first. If you do this, you could be putting more bacteria onto your skin. And then you will find you have more breakouts after rubbing your skin.

To ensure you cover up your spots without causing more to appear, always wash your hands first before touching your skin. That way, no more bacteria will be placed on your skin. And if you make an error, use a cotton pad to wipe away the concealer. That way, you can avoid redness appearing after using the makeup.

Make sure you are opting for natural makeup

Foundation is great for hiding any spots on your face and it can make your skin look nearly flawless. However, you need to be careful about which foundation you are going for. Choosing the wrong one could mean even more spots and breakouts. 

For example, sensitive skin and opt for one that is not specifically designed for your skin type, it may irritate your skin and cause you to come out in a ton of spots. To avoid this occurring, opt for natural makeup. It has fewer ingredients which will harm your skin which is why I recommend these organic foundations. By using natural products, you can cover your spots without having to worry about more occurring.

IDEAL TIP: You could always make your own natural makeup. That way, you won’t have to be concerned about what’s in the makeup!

Do choose products for your skin type

You might pick up a particular moisturizer or primer to help hide those spots and reduce the redness on your face. But you need to ensure you are going for products which are right for your skin type. If you don’t pick the right one for your skin, it’s going to make it so much worse. Make sure you consider if the product is good for your skin before taking it to the till. You really want something which has anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce your acne.

And remember that as much as you might hate putting your spots on display, leaving your skin free from products and makeup for a period can help your acne!
