There's nothing worse than waking up one morning to see a zit greeting you in the mirror. Whether it's in a prominent spot on your forehead or nestled into the crook of your nose, blemishes like these can ruin the effect of your favorite eye makeup products, like tube mascara and liquid eyeliner. Your eyes will be drawn to your zit - not your peepers, but luckily there's one tip that can help.
Spot-treating acne with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products is your best bet, but doing so will take one or two days before you start noticing results, reports Allure Magazine. Instead of waiting for blemishes to pop up before you treat them, you should be taking preventative measures.
Even if you don't see any pimples at the moment, you should be using an anti-acne cream and face wash if you know you're prone to them. A thin layer over the areas where zits typically show up is all you need. Keep in mind that some of these products can be drying, so it's best to follow up with an oil-free moisturizer. After a few weeks, you should be able to enjoy your favorite blinc cosmetics on a clean slate!
