3 Makeup Tricks to Help Hide Your Acne Scars

Acne ScarsThe best thing about kissing your teens goodbye is getting rid of that nasty acne causing hormones that go along with it. However, one thing that nobody tells you is that even after your teen induced acne is gone, you still may have some scars to show for it. Luckily, Thomas F. Crais offers patients a variety of treatments including laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels to help rid you of your scars. To cover up your scars until you can schedule an appointment with Dr. Crais, consider using these three makeup tricks. Read on to learn more.

Conceal
Liquid concealer isn’t just idealfor covering up those dark circles under your eyes. In fact, it is one of the best ways to help cover up your acne in just a few minutes. When shopping for a liquid concealer, look for one that is just one shade lighter than your natural skin. Although it may sound weird to have makeup that’s lighter, once you blend it in and put powder on time, the lighter shade will be less noticeable.

Blot
Whether you are using loose powder, liquid foundation or concealer to cover up your acne scars, the best trick that you can use is to blot on the makeup. When people typically apply makeup to their skin, they do so in a sweeping motion, but when covering up a blemish, this will only move it around. By blotting it, however, you can help the makeup to fill in the scar and make it less noticeable.

Cover
Another tip that you can use when trying to hide your acne scars is not just to cover up your acne scar but to add makeup to your entire face. By adding makeup across your face, you can help to blend your newly covered scar with the rest of your skin— making it stand out less.

Unless you’re The Joker himself, you don’t want to have a face full of scars. Until you have the time to come into Dr. Crais to get your scars taken care of, conceal, blot, and cover.
