I've been blessed with clear skin most of my life. Even as a teenager I never had acne. However, recent anxiety left me with a worse break-out than I've ever had in my life.
Running around right before an event, I ran into CVS and found something close to my skin tone to cover it up — ironically from the "covergirl" brand, but it completely did the trick. This fix stick is great if you're in a pinch.
Better yet, I plan to avoid having to use cover-up in the first place! To stay ace-free, it's best to use a face-wash once when you wake up and before going to bed. This clears excess oil and dirt for a smoother shave and it allows the products you apply later to soak in better. After washing and/or shaving, apply a moisturizer. If you have particularly bad skin, try a face mask before bed as well!
Here are some of the best products in the market:
