5 Double-duty Makeup Products for Getting Great-Looking Skin
A few things to help you look fresh-faced...despite the occasional all-nighter (and breakout).
(SPOT.ph) Stress, humidity, pollution...did we mention stress? Whatever the reason, sometimes it seems like only the gifted few can maintain a clear complexion. For the rest of us, it’s a matter of faking it till the blemishes go away. Thankfully there are products that help make hiding the occasional breakout a little bit easier.
Celeteque Acne-Clearing Concealer (P269)
This concealer is packed with salicylic acid to help treat pimples, along with Camellia sinensis extract, an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory ingredient that also promises to prevent future breakouts. The creamy formula is easy to blend and won't smudge quickly when used with foundation.
Celeteque is available at leading drugstores
Revlon Age Defying Targeted Dark Spot Concealer Treatment (P725)
The name is a mouthful, but it promises a lot, too. This concealer dries to a satiny finish and can be used to hide minor blemishes while treating dark spots with vitamin C and licorice root extract. Available in four shades, the tube comes with a sponge tip to make application a cinch.
