We’ve all had that embarrassing pimple – the overnight breakout – and they often come at the most inopportune times. Partly because stress has a habit of bringing them out (those hormones at work again), and of course we tend to be at our most stressed right before important events.
Concealing a pimple that surprises you when you need to show your face to the public isn’t always easy, but here are some tips that could help.
There are many myths about getting rid of a pimple but most of them do not work. There really aren’t any overnight solutions to getting rid of a pimple — but there are ways to hide one. So hopefully this will help you make it through your day without embarrassment.
Use Makeup To Hide Your Embarrassing Pimple
Make up such as concealer and foundation can be used to hide a pimple but do not go overboard with it. If you have ever seen someone over do it, you know that it looks ridiculous.
Subtly is the key here and a light covering is all you need to hide your embarrassing pimple. Yes, you will still see it in the mirror because you will be over-focussing on it. But reducing the visibility of it will mean nobody else will notice.
Finding the right makeup is important. You might need to sample a few different types and brands of makeup until you find the right one for your skin type. Remember not to overdo it. I can’t stress that one enough.
Using Your Hair To Hide Your Embarrassing Pimple
This is an oldie but a goody. I don’t know a woman who hasn’t tried this. One thing you might need to know is that oily hair can cause pimples so make sure that your hair isn’t too oily, because it might make things worse.
Using your hair to hide a pimple isn’t hard – if you’re lucky – because how effective this is greatly depends on where your pimple is located. Forehead pimples are pretty easy to hide with a bang. Pimples that are mostly on one side of the face are easy to hide by simply placing your hair to that one side.
A minor change of hairstyle just for today, can make all the difference.
