RealSimple: 9 Tricks to Making Your Skin Flawless

4 of 10

An Erupted Pimple

What you need: Acne-fighting gel + concealer + translucent loose powder.

What to do: Apply an acne-fighting gel to the pimple. This will “help seal the opening to prevent bacteria from entering the skin and inflaming the lesion,” says Jeannette Graf, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, in New York City. Use your finger to pat on an opaque concealer that matches your skin tone. Since shine highlights imperfections, apply an oil-absorbing translucent loose powder on top to set the concealer and make the area matte.
