10 Effective Ways to Cover a Blemish


5. Visine

I know it is unexpected to see the medicine for eyes in the list of the ways to hide the blemishes. Visine is for your eyes, right? Well, Visine is designed to constrict blood vessels in your eyes, which reduces redness and even helps to reducing itching. As it turns out, Visine affects blood vessels anywhere in the body in the same way it does those in the eyes.

Soak a cotton ball in Visine and then hold it to a blemish for five minutes. This will cause the surrounding blood vessels to constrict, which will reduce redness and inflammation. If you don’t have Visine, you can use any other red-eye formula eye drops.

I don’t recommend you to use Visine on a zit right before you try to hide it with makeup. The thing is, Visine could temporarily reduce the redness of a zit, and the redness will come back when the eye drops wear off. If you are not going to apply any makeup, then you can use red-eye formula eye drops. Just carry it with you so that you can hide your blemish anytime and anywhere without using makeup. This tip is ideal for women who enjoy going makeup free.
