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. *URL Removed, see board rules; http://www.acne.org/board-rules.html Acne.org Moderator Team*
 
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.

I have tried probably over half the drugstore BB creams and have found that physician's formula's regular BB (not organic) is the most natural looking one for me. They all seem to be to sparkly or make me too oily but this one is good for oily/acne prone skin. I have been watching Cassandra Bankson's youtube channel the last few days and she is very knowledgeable
about acne prone skin makeup. I just watched one about tinted green primers covering redness and that maybe a good way to go if you're a guy and want to look natural. I haven't personally tried one yet but I know L'Oreal has one and at Walmart they have a brand called Hard Candy and I saw they had one. I used the tester on Almay's and it was really sticky and didn't like it. A primer would also even out your skin texture. They are typically used to make foundation or what ever go on more smoothly. Here is that video if you are interested. She also has some videos on BB creams if you look.   

Ps. I just now see you posted this a long time ago... Did you ever find one?
