Barbie’s Beauty Bits 5 Effective Ways To Conceal Blemishes

Nothing is worse than waking up the day of a big event with a big ole zit on your face. While skincare is king for minimizing breakouts, it will not wholly neutralize those last-minute overnight breakouts. 

So, beauties, when you’re faced with a blemish that just won’t quit, you need multiple options to conceal that bad boy, and Barbie’s Beauty Bits is here to help with five ways to conceal your blemishes effectively.

Tip 1: Find A More Permanent Solution
We are starting with this as if it is a constant; you need to nip it in the bud by consulting a dermatologist for medical advice, diagnosis, and treatment instead of trying to conceal it daily.

A dermatologist can prescribe medications that are stronger than what you can find over-the-counter or do at home. They can also discuss other options, such as laser treatment for scars as well as some medical grade skincare products like Skinmedica.

You may have to try a few different treatments to find the one that’s most effective for you, and a dermatologist is best to help find the right acne treatments for those with acne-prone skin. 


Tip 2: Zap That Zit With A Pimple Patch
Consider investing in pimple patches for those naughty zits and breakouts that appear out of nowhere at night. 

Many of us have our first instinct to pick at our skin when we realize one blemish, and the pimple patch helps curb the picking action, which always leads to scarring. 

Acne patches do not only prevent you from picking at breakouts, but they also quicken the whaling process by absorbing all oils and fluids from your blemishes. 

I prefer these because, unlike a spot treatment cream, these patches don’t leave your skin dry and flaky. Plus, they work very quickly. 

The Peace Out Pimple patch works in 6 hours or less. It also helps with redness, making the area easy to cover up! Leading us to our next tip… 

Tip 3: Say Bye, Bye To Breakouts With A Multitasking Concealer
Adding makeup to a breakout can worsen your acne if not applied correctly, especially if you opt for a full-coverage foundation. This is why makeup artists prefer to use a multitasking treatment. Several multitasking concealers are on the market, many acting as spot treatments to heal breakouts for all skin types. 

One product I love is from Itcosmetics, as it is a drying lotion and concealer in one. This brand is known for combining makeup with skincare. So not only the Bye, Bye Concealer full-coverage, but it’s also a spot treatment to help heal your breakout.

While this product does come with an applicator, the application isn’t the best. I suggest stippling the product instead of sweeping it on because you will remove it instead of adhering. Once it is where you like it, conceal it with a translucent powder to keep it all in place. (It is also great for dark spots for those who may have some acne scarring).

A concealer isn’t the only makeup option. Some others to consider include:

  • A color corrector
  • Green concealers
  • Liquid foundations 

Tip 4: Wash Your Makeup Brushes And Sponges
You will hear me say this constantly. But the truth is a dirty makeup brush can harbor bacteria and dead skin cells.

And guess what? If you are not regularly cleaning your makeup brushes, you put this gunt right back on your face. This can lead to breakouts as well as premature aging. So beauties, wash those makeup tools!

Depending on how regularly you use your makeup tools, wash them with a gentle solution; even baby shampoo will work.

Tip 5: Your Skincare Routine
A great skincare routine is the best way to avoid those last-minute breakouts. And no worries, it doesn’t need to be a complex step-by-step routine to be effective.

There are some multitasking products if you want to keep it real simple. One product my niece so loves is from Tula (Acne All-Star). It is a 3-in-1 formula that can be used as a daily cleanser, mask, or spot treatment, catering to your skin’s specific needs. 

If you are not prone to constant breakouts, you can keep it with an everyday anti-aging routine that consists of

  • A washable cleansing cloth
  • A double cleanse
  • Toner that contains Cica or Tea Tree Oil
  • Treatment serum containing salicylic acid
  • Moisturize (even if you have oily skin)

As you can see, there are many effective ways to cover a blemish. You can conquer whatever it is by visiting a dermatologist, updating your skincare routine, color correcting, and improving your makeup tool’s hygiene.
