Concealing is the art of covering dark spots, freckles, sun damage or any other color imperfections on the skin surface. The color of the concealer should be one or two shades lighter than your foundation. By using a lighter shade, it will not only lighten the darker spots, but will give a uniform color to you skin when the foundation is applied. Don't use a darker color to conceal a flaw. This will only highlight it when you apply your foundation. The spots or imperfections will appear even darker after the foundation is applied compared to the rest of your face.

Some skin whiteners contain hydroquinone and mercury which can be very harmful to your health and possibly even cause cancer.

I recommend Kinerase Clear Skin Moisture Light, for oily skin, it leaves a nice dewy finish on the face.

Severely sore cysts require the injection of interlesional corticosteroid, which acts by melting the cyst within 3-5 days and prevents scars. Isotretinoin is an effective acne scar treatment. It works by reducing the activity of the oil glands and is widely regarded as the most effective drug to fight cystic acne. However, this pill has serious side-effects on liver and the nervous system and as such should not be used during pregnancy. To cover imperfections apply foundation first and then go back and dot on a concealer that neutralizes red.
