Looking For Acne/redness/hypigmentation Coverage

4 posts in this topic

Hi there, i'm an asian male with some moderate acne although most has subsided i'm left with a lot of red spots/redness/dark hyperpigmentation spots.

I was hoping someone here could recommend me to some make-up products that could help cover/conceal this (foundations,concealers,bbcreams etc)

im asian with yellow undertones i believe, I currently wear bb cream but i feel that midway through the day it gets very oily and it also looks very unnatural in natural lighting

=(

thanks in advance

For redness, acne marks and hyperpigmentation I always rely on my MAC Studio Concealer. They have shades for almost everybody and it does a really good job of staying put on oily skin. I would know because I have really oily skin. If you have a MAC counter near where you live, try going and having them help you find the right shade and how to apply it w/o looking unnatural. My MAC counter helped me through this and I got a concealer and power to help me conceal and set my face so it won't come of throughout my day.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Lotion + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Medication:

  • Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo
  • Meftormin 500mg

Supplements:
  • Vitamin D - 2000 I.U/day
  • Zinc - 50mg/day


And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation / serum has strong yellow undertones. Very good for asian skin tones. It's light/medium buildable coverage and is the most natural looking foundation I've ever come across, perfect for guys. It looks pretty much undetectable in natural lighting when blended well. I would suggest just using a light layer of that and then getting a good concealer.

If you want full coverage without a concealer which will not look so natural, then have a look at rimmel lasting finish 25 hour foundation. doesn't get oily at all until about 7 hours of wear on oily skin. The undertones are quite pink in those though.
