Concealer Problem

Alright I have a pretty big red spot on my chin and try to use concealer to cover it up, the problem is it looks like there is some skin peeling and it's noticable, anyone know how to take care of that.

Thanks.

Wash your face with a GENTLE soap (like cetaphil bar) and gently run a clean, soft toothbrush over the top of it. This should remove the flaking. A little neosporin on top of it after you dry your face should make it smooth, dry, flake free, and ready for concealer. The neo will reduce/remove the redness, and also make it clear faster with less chance of a scar/red mark.

No... that pretty much covers it.. very good advice. Only I prefer a complexion brush opposed to a toothbrush. Cetaphil moisturizer is very good also.

Moisturize it twice a day (morning and night)

with an oil-free lotion with spf.

You may have the urge to slap on pimple cream

but try to stay away from it since it only dries out your skin more.

Apply your concealer before the lotion dries 100%

and be sure to put on a very teeny bit

since concealer on a pimple AND dry skin looks terrible.
