How to Conceal Acne like a Pro – (and why you shouldn’t use your under eye concealer over acne)

Have you ever tried to conceal a blemish only to find that it drew even more attention to your latest breakout? Jane Iredale’s Zap&Hide is the product that you need. The key is making sure that you choose the proper concealer for your skin tone, a general rule of thumb is to choose a color that is a shade or two lighter than your foundation.  The next step is to determine what type of concealer you need.  In most cases, the concealer you use to cover a blemish should not be the same as the concealer that you use to cover those under eye circles.  Here’s why:

If you have fine lines or wrinkles in your eye area, you want to use a concealer that is moisturizing and nourishing.  If you use a concealer that is too drying or chalky it will enhance those fine lines and make you look older or tired.  Similarly, if you use a concealer that is too moisturizing over a blemish, you will make it worse.

Jane Iredale just reformulated the Zap&Hide Blemish Concealer.  I absolutely love this product – it’s so easy to use.  Zap&Hide is a double-ended blemish treatment stick that will conceal while it heals and leave skin looking radiant. Zap is a clear stick containing beneficial antiseptic and anti-inflammatory botanicals, while Hide is a highly pigmented, creamy concealer to cover the blemish.

Simply apply Blemish Balm, the clear side, to the blemish, then apply Blemish Concealer and feather the edges.  That’s it!  Zap&Hide is powerful and effective, but gentle enough to be used as often as needed. Keep your skin looking fresh and clean all day long!

What are your greatest challenges with concealer and foundation?  I would love to hear from you!  Join the conversation by leaving a comment below and be sure to pick up your perfectly matched shade of Zap&Hide from Haven.
