Best product to cover male acne?

Recommended Posts

I know there have been a few posts about this, but I just made a purchase and I want to know if anyone has used this product. http://www.mankind.co.uk/ProductDetails.as...IWCAMEFROM=zil1

There are only like 3 shades of this product-- is that bad? Because........with only 3 shades it cannot possibly match all skin colors-- I just got the color that is closest to my color, which I guess is tanned-white guy color. Anyway........is this a good product? I'd like any opinions on this. I've been using proactive for about 6 months now, and it got rid of about most of the acne-- I have maybe 4-5 small pimples around my face, but there are about 15 noticeable small red marks that when you touch them are smooth to the touch for the most part but the red marks never go away-- this has become EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. Any advice/reviews would be great, thanks!

I just bought Neutrogena acne mark fading peel, from the reviews on amazon and other sites its supposed to work well in reducing/getting rid of acne marks, anybody used this? By the way, my "acne marks" are just spots of skin that are red, some are on SLIGHTLY raised skin, but many are smooth to the touch-- is this what a post acne mark is?

I used to use this peel, and I do think it helped fade the redness some. However, I broke out like clockwork a little over a week after using this, though that could have been coincidence.

Here's some more information on treatment methods for "red marks."

Don't overlook cosmetics marketed to women. The only difference is in the packaging and advertisement. If you're looking for a good shade selection, I recommend L'OREAL True Match Super Blendable Concealers, though they did not have any shades light enough for me.

You could also try a green color corrector (uses green to counteract redness), though some people have trouble blending in the green.

My favorite concealer is Prescriptives Flawless Finish Concealer with SPF 25. It offers very good, natural looking coverage and the shade selection is decent. Unfortunately, it is in cream form and can therefore be problematic for pores (which sucks because one often get the best coverage with creamy concealers). However, I have never broken out from it personally.

When applying any concealer, I take a little bit of product onto my index finger, dab it directly where I want it, and pat (not rub) it on with my clean ring finger. Some say to use a concealer brush as many professionals do this, though I have better luck with my fingers.
