How to conceal acne scars & spots like a pro

Hello everyone,
Acne,acne,acne-it's the dreaded nemesis who loves to strike whenever it bloody well likes!Ohh what I would do to go back to those days of soft,clear,naturally 'airbrushed' skin before hitting puberty torture(ughhh).

Fear not though there are numerous super hero products out there that treat spots,so they're not semi-permanently tattooed onto your face for god knows how long whilst other products can stop them from being a huge stand out.Take for example:makeup but with that comes the questions...How do you use it?How do you apply it?How do you stop it from looking cakey?
1.The first step is to make sure you begin with skin that is clean and free from dirt,oil and any other impurities-think if it as a canvas,nothings really going to on flawlessly if your skins say is thick with sweat will it?

Complete whatever skincare routine you've established that you are most comfortable with!

If you would like some skincare recommendations here are a few I have tried + tested specifically targeted at spots:

Clean & Clear,Advantage spot control daily wash
Neutrogena,Pink Grapefruit facial wash(it's got the perfect morning wake me up scent)
Neutrogena,Oil-free moisturiser 
2.This is optional but if you want your face makeup to last(i.e in hot weather)then always apply primer.When I had really dry,dehydrated skin it was such a lifesaver because it reduced the 'I have put it on a disgusting,crusty sponge' look. 
A few months ago Collection launched an amazing primer enriched with witch hazel,which is a naturally anti-bacterial substance thats fantastic for treating spots.I haven't given it a go myself yet*mentally adds it onto wishlist*but have read reviews on it and it seems really good.

3.Ever heard of colour correcting?Chances are that if you have,you'll know that green is a great way to counteract redness.I love using the Natural Collection colour correcting stick,priced at a bargain £1.99 on my blemishes before applying any other face makeup.
4.A few may find they have particularly bad acne so prefer to wear a foundation of some kind to even out redness.I would recommend giving the thick,full coverage one a miss if you can help it because chances are,it will start blocking your pores and in return equal more spots(which is a total no,no of course!).
Instead,opt for a lighter BB cream so you can show off all the beautiful clear skin you already naturally have and focus on concealing all the acne.This technique will ensure that the cake face look can easily be avoided.

2.Hygiene is key.One way achieve this is by washing your brushes regularly;makeup brushes should be washed once a week at the minimum.

As for makeup on the other hand,try and buy the ones where you don't have to dip your finger/brush in constantly for every application or if you have the the liquidy ones with the doe-foot applicator,STOP putting it your blemish right away and put it on the back of your hand before.

6.Next step is to make sure you conceal with the right tools.Some like to just use their hands but I find brushes or sponges can really add that special something to the finish.Here are two of my essential brush picks:
Currently you can only purchase this brush in sets but even if you buy it just for the brush,I personally think it's completely worth it!To me it's like a miniture sized expert face brush because of the shape and the way it buffs concealer into skin flawlessly.

Flat concealer brush
I picked this up in a set from Aldi over a year ago...(yah i know aha)as crazy as it sounds for £2.99 along with three other brushes.I don't tend to use it but I do so when I'm looking for a way to really get into the corners of my eyes and nose because of it's narrow shape.On blemishes it blends the makeup by moving it across skin,thus preventing people from putting on an overly thick layer I suppose.Similar ones to this can be found in Primark.

7.Apply the concealer of your choice onto the back if your hand and with a clean finger,pop a bit on your blemish then blend in after.Fabulous medium to full coverage ones firmly loved by me include...

8.Last step would be to set the 'imperfection',in place with a light dusting of powder.There are great budget friendly powders out there specially designed to help with preventing breakouts like the Rimmel Clear Complexion powder.
Unfortunately as much as most would like,please don't expect makeup to magic the spot away since raised spots will stand out from the rest of your smooth skin as a bump in bright lighting.

Spots are awful but you must remember that they come and go,if you're self conscious about them,don't be!It's completely natural and nothing to be embarrassed about-your skin should be not define who you are.I have struggled with the bad skin blessing(well,perhaps it isn't so much of one?Aha)ever since the age of 11 and the battle isn't over yet...but I have learnt to live with it.Take the gorgeous My Pale Skin on Youtube(Em Ford)for example;acne scars,spots and those pesky zits will heal one day,it just takes a little time.Don't fret and panic if that new face wash you just bought from Boot's last week did absolutely nothing for you,but do remember that absolutely everyone(unless they're some goddess of a human*cough*highly unlikely!)will suffer from spots and scarring anywhere on their bodies' at some point in their lives.

  41. Even though we know in our heart that we are uniquely designed by God, we all at some point in our life have fallen victim to allowing ill-intentioned "friends" or that nagging voice in our head that try to persuade us that we are less than. In so doing, we fail to fully appreciate our own individuality and the marvelous qualities that we have to offer. how much does it cost to make a cbd bath bomb
