Healthy Skin Tips & Tricks

Cleansing with salicylic acid can help kill bacteria and reduce inflammation

Follow these tips and tricks to make every day a good skin day.

You wanted everything to be perfect for prom, yearbook photo day, or your graduation. But you wake up with a nasty surprise – a pimple right in the middle of your face! Don’t let that stop you. Here are some easy solutions that make any bad skin day better.

1. Get clean.

Wash your face with a cleanser that has pimple-fighting ingredients, like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. It might not banish the pimple right away, but it can start killing bacteria and reducing inflammation.

2. Use green concealer.

Green make-up? Sounds silly, we know. But green concealer was designed precisely to balance out the redness of your pimples. So apply it directly to your blemish.

3. Cover it up.

No one wants to walk out of the house with uneven, green blotches all over their face. For more coverage, apply an oil-free foundation that matches your skin tone. Remember to blot with loose powder so your make-up won’t slide off oily skin.

4. Smile.

Smile. Never let a blemish stop you from having a great day.
