Beauty : Blemishes and dark spots. Don't conceal them treat them!

Updated on October 10, 2014

Acne scars and blemishes

Blemishes and dark spots. Don't conceal them treat them!

There are many skin conditions you would want to conceal on your face. Most of them are blemishes, dark spots, acne, hyper pigmentation, and freckles. The most common causes of these conditions are direct exposure to the sun, aging, medication, picking on pimples, not drinking plenty of water etc.

The most important thing is to determine the cause of your problem, and then try to treat it because all these things have different treatments which will give you specific results. First of all drink plenty of water; it just cannot be emphasized enough. A healthy glow can be achieved by drinking lots of water because it helps the body flush out toxins.

The focus of this article is on blemishes and dark spots that result from acne scars. The most important thing is don’t play with the pimple!!! It might make it better for the time being but it will leave a mark for a long time. I will be mentioning a few products that have worked miracles on many people.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash

This face wash works wonders for people with normal/combination/oily acne prone skin. Although for the people with dry skin it can tend to be a little too dry. It is an alcohol-free cleanser which deep cleanses without irritating or over-drying the skin yet. For best results use it once a day in the winter and twice a day in the summer. Afterwards, use the Clean & Clear Dual Action moisturizer which moisturizes and helps prevent spots and blemishes.

PURIF-AC Blemish Correcting Emulsion

This is absolutely hands down my favorite product for spots and blemishes! The overall ratings for this product are amazing. You will start seeing results within 2 weeks! Initially use it twice a day for about a month or two and later you can decrease it to once a day. It fades the acne scars and blemishes better than any other over the counter cream. It works great for blackheads too. It might not get rid of them by 100% but probably 70% and that’s good enough. If it seems too much to put it on once or twice a day just dap it on a fresh pimple as spot treatment and it works great.

These are a few of the best products that work wonders, try using these three in combination and see the results yourself. But don’t throw away your Mac concealer just yet; try this for about a month and you will see your skin has cleared up.
