How Do I Hide My Problem Skin?



While there’s no fast fix for acne, eczema, or a bad sunburn, try these fixes to help skin look its best.


Try using an over the counter benzyl peroxide cream or tea tree oil.  Wait a few minutes for them to penetrate and then mix an oil free moisturizer with your foundation. Use your index finger to pat mixture into the skin. Let sit for 30 seconds, then gently remove any dry skin flakes with tweezers. Never use powder to set foundation.  Try to buy products that have sunscreen already added.


Squeeze a moisturizing cream cleanser onto a makeup-removing wipe, rub it over your face in a circular motion, then rinse with cold water. Blend moisturizer into skin with your fingertip. Next, combine a dollop of foundation with a pea-size amount of moisturizer. Rub your hands together to blend, and then pat on skin.


Rub fresh aloe vera, chamomile or hydrocortisone cream  over the burn, and let it sit for 30 minutes.  Apply a creamy moisturizer on top.  Select a foundation two tones darker than your normal skin tone to cover the redness.  It is never a good idea to burn your skin.
