Tip of the Week

To finish the job, apply a yellow-toned concealer with a fine brush to the blemish to mask it.

* You also can help prevent clogged pores and breakouts by regularly using masques such as the June Jacobs Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque that will keep pores clean as a whistleóprevention is key.
