This concealer can stand up to summer
Breakouts are no fun, and for some yet-to-be-determined reason, I’ve been getting more blemishes than usual. Of course this flare-up had to coincide with the start of summer—and just when the South Florida humidity went into overdrive. I rarely wear foundation unless I’m going out after dark, but concealer is a daily essential for evening out redness around my nose, darkness under my eyes and any other imperfections that may rear their heads (I’m talking to you, pimples!). But as soon as the weather feels like a punch in the face when you walk outside, the concealers I usually use seem to disappear into thin air in as little as the 10 minutes it takes for me to get from my house to Pilates.
I’m thinking it’s time to step up my camouflage game with Dermaflage’s Behind the Scenes Full Coverage Concealer, which promises long-wearing, smudge-proof coverage that lasts all day. Even more, the palette comes with five shades (in both Light and Medium/Dark versions) so you can customize the color for a perfect match, even if your skin tone gets a bit darker as we get deeper into summer. FYI, it’s also powerful enough to cover tattoos, bruises and anything else you don’t want the world to see.
As a writer, I know I’m not supposed to bury the lede, but I figured I’d save the best part for last: It’s waterproof! No more freaking out about your face at pool parties, the beach or the gym—because this stuff isn’t going anywhere. And for the record, it’s ideal for all skin types (i.e. it won’t make breakouts worse) and you can see the results for yourself in this video.
