Unfortunately, we can't choose the times when our skin will and won't break out and we sometimes end up with breakouts in the worst of times. However, here's a little secret that can help get you through a disastrous breakout: The key to hiding blemishes is to neutralize the redness. Try this: Soak a Q-tip in Visine and put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes (it's also a good idea to keep pre-frozen ones at hand for an emergency). Hold the tip of the Q-tip up to the blemish for a few moments to alleviate the area. The Visine will help to constrict the blood vessels and reduce redness while the cold will relieve the puffiness. 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 masks on a monthly basis. Always follow with a good moisturizer.
