• Wash your hands before handling your face. Dirt and oils on your hands will only aggravate the blemish.

• Apply an oil-control foundation, starting at the center of the face and blending outward.

• Choose a concealer with cool undertones to counteract the redness of the blemish.

• Avoid irritation by using a brush to both apply and blend concealer.

• Set with an oil-control powder. Use this powder throughout the day to control shine.
