You get occasional pimples, usually with white heads.
If you have more than 4 or 5 on your face at any one time, perhaps you have acne. In that case click here.
For an instant fix, concealer is the best way to go. Warm a tiny bit between your index finger and thumb, then pat it onto the spot using your index finger until it blends with the surrounding skin. Make sure the spot is smooth and moisturised beforehand. If it’s dry and flakey the concealer will cling to those flakes – not a good look.
Opt for a ‘dry’ texture concealer like MAC Studio Finish Concealer so it stays in place all day.
Make sure to get your shade matched in-person at a cosmetic counter, a custom matched shade will be undetectable on your skin.
If your pimples have white ‘heads’ (full of pus), you can pop them – best to do this at night as the area will be red afterwards. Wrap your popping fingers in a sheet of tissue each so you don’t scratch the skin (which creates scars). If the spot doesn’t pop with gentle pressure, leave it alone. Trying too hard will leave it looking worse. Follow up with a spot treatment gel or face mask.
If they’re red, apply a spot treatment twice a day and wait for the pimple/s to disappear. Don’t try to pop red spots.
In general, work a salicylic acid product into your day-to-day skincare to prevent spots from forming. These products also prevent ingrowns.
