A good skincare routine and clever make-up tricks are all you need when it comes to dealing with pimples and blemishes, but you have to banish them the “right” way.  

With these tips you will make a pimple vanish in 8 easy steps and face the world.

Step 1. Thoroughly wash your hands

Bacteria is living on pretty much on everything we touch nowadays, so you want clean hands when dealing with your face.

Step 2. Cleanse your skin properly

If you suffer from acne or more “than an occasional pimple”, its probably a good idea to use an anti-bacterial facewash regularly to help stop the “spreading of bacteria” cycle.

Step 3. Don’t skip the Toner

Apply a natural Toner evenly across your face and pat into the skin. Witchhazel or Rosewater are good choices.

Toners help to balance your skin pH levels and prepare your skin for skin care and make-up products. This is an important step that most women skip.

Step 4. Moisturise your skin

Dab a little oil-free moisturiser on the pimple(s). Apply your normal moisturiser to the rest of your face and neck.

This might seem a little strange but you want to smooth out the pimple(s) rough surface before you disguise it.

Step 5. Dab a drop 

After your moisturiser is absorbed, dab a drop of eye drop solution onto the pimple as this will help to remove the redness. Wait for a few minutes for it to absorb.

Step 6. Apply concealer

Using a small lip liner brush carefully draw green coloured concealer around the edge of the pimple and then blend it toward the centre. Using your finger to pat concealer into your skin. If you don’t own a green concealer use a foundation or blemish concealer that matches your skin tone exactly. Then blend away any harsh lines.

FYI: Never use a concealer that is lighter than your skin tone or it will only highlight your pimples.

A green concealer is your best friend when it comes to disguising a pimple, scarring or anything “red” as it counteracts redness. If you don’t have one invest in one.

Step 7. Let the concealer settle

Wait a few minutes to allow the concealer to settle and then apply your foundation in a dabbing motion with a disposable make up sponge, being careful not to “wipe away” what you have just applied.

During an acne “outbreak” DO NOT use any beauty blenders or foundation brushes on your face. 

Only use disposable makeup sponges to apply your foundation as this will limit the spreading of bacteria around your face. Use it once and then throw it away.

Any brushes you use to apply your powder or blush thoroughly wash with warm, soapy water so as not to re-infect your face the next time you use them.

Step 8. Set and forget

After the foundation has settled into your skin, set it in place by layering a sheer yellow toned powder on top of it with a cotton ball. 

Dust off the excess powder. 

Apply some Rosewater Mist or Finishing Spray to set your makeup.
