See more about this Episode
Anyone with problematic skin can attest that covering up blemishes and blotches is usually a grueling routine that involves layering products à la Lady M's Mille Crêpes cake. But, piling on the camo-level concealer and thick foundation can actually smother your complexion and lead to more breakouts and increased oil production. Good thing we've figured out how to hide imperfections without covering everything up.
Here's the trick: Apply lightweight products with skin-clearing ingredients sparingly so your mug can breathe. Watch the video above for three easy steps to cover blemishes using Almay's Clear Complexion™ line of double-duty goodies that provide instant coverage while treating those embarrassing specks. Now, just hit play.
