Hi,

so I'm a guy, I've dealt with my active acne but now I'm left with these red hyper pigmentation spots and my skin texture isn't awesome either. I realize that it will take time to heal , so I've decided to put my pride aside and start looking into something that can cover these flaws A BIT. I do not want to do like a full make up routine, I want it to be subtle, I'd hate to have to admit that I'm wearing some kind of make-up.

I started looking into these bb cremes and they seem to do what I need but there are so many of them and I absolutely want one that will not make my acne return. My skin is also sensitive so aggressive products are not an option.

Can anyone give me some recommendations? Will a bb creme able to blur out my red marks a bit?

I'm a total newbie at this, please help.

Thanks

Yes, BB will even your tone. Cover Girl has a great one that I've never reacted badly to, and it works as a moisturizer and light foundation, and bonus, makeup protects you from the sun and hyperpigmentation from exposing raw, healing, or BPO-treated skin.  If you're on antibiotics, you're also photosensitive, so you're doing the right thing choosing makeup.

When I'm clear, BB is all I wear. 

 

You might be excited to learn that Body Shop makes a Tea Tree BB Cream, so you can treat, hydrate and conceal all at once. http://www.thebodysh...e-bb-cream.aspx  

 

They tend to be a bit darker than the photo of the color on the tube or the plastic placeholder on the shelf, and your face is a different color than your hand. Ask the lady in cosmetics at the Drugstore, or at Ulta or Sephora, what shade would be best for you.  In fact, at Ulta and Sephora, it's part of their job to help you and they can teach you how to apply. 

 

Namely, make sure you're blending well on your neck or at your chin so it doesn't look like a mask. 

 

You can also get aloose powder and brush to "set" the BB and reduce shine, and further even your tone, and give a tiny bit more coverage.  BB won't give you all day coverage- if you're oily during the day, or sweat, or work longer than 6 hrs, that powder will keep it on. 

 

Also, pick up some Clean and Clear oil wipes to blot your t-zone. It works through makeup and will give your BB and/or powder more longevity. 

 

Clean and Clear facewash and toner will create a nice surface to put the BB on.
