3 Rules to hide a pimple
Pimples seem to be able to read your mind. They know when its when its class picture day and even prom night! Here are three simple rules to follow when a pimple rears its ugly head.

1) If there’s no whitehead, DON’T squeeze it, since the pimple is probably too deep to drain.  Picking a deep “underground” pimple can end up turning it into a larger boil that may get infected.  Plus, squeezing can make it scab, which is harder to hide with concealer.

2) If there’s a whitehead that’s just too nasty to be seen, you can try squeezing it gently – BUT do this only at night, so it has time to shrink before morning.  And if it doesn’t come out easily, don’t keep squeezing, since this may cause more damage.  Cover with a Band-Aid to prevent scabbing.

3) Avoid letting hot water hit the pimple, this can make it more red and inflamed.  Instead, apply a cool, damp washcloth over the pimple to help reduce redness, pat dry and then apply concealer.  A stick formula will cover better than a liquid concealer.  For best results, dab on with your fingertip or a small brush, and keep dotting on until the pimple is covered.  Then apply foundation or powder.
