I always wear concealer to cover my PIH. I stopped breaking out about 2 months ago (by the grace of Almighty God and birth control!) but I have pale skin and very noticeable red marks from about 5 months of being very broken out. Concealer covers them up completely, but I hate having to wear it.
This week is spring break, I'm just hanging with my best friends and spending a lot of time outside having fun, so I decided to say screw it to my makeup and I've been going barefaced... in the past week, my red marks have faded more than in the past 2 months since I got clear!
Why is this? Does concealer somehow prevent PIH from healing?
I use Maybelline 24 hour something concealer. No foundation because I hate makeup, don't have to use much, and I'm pretty good at blending out the concealer to look natural.
