Quick Tips for a Bad Skin Day

It happens to all of us. A pimple here. An unexpected dry patch there. Bad skin days are inevitable and always seem to happen at the worst times. So then comes the question: how do I deal with it? Whether you’re pinched for time, or already have one foot out the door, here are some quick and easy ways to fix a bad skin day.


One trick I swear by when I notice I’m having a bad skin day is to mix 3-4 drops of my favorite serum into my moisturizer. This works wonders if my skin is looking particularly dry– which is almost always when I travel! My skin has the tendency to look really dull and not as dewy as normal. When I notice this, I’ll drop some oil like this one by Farmacy into my moisturizer to give my skin an extra burst of nourishment and hydration it needs.


When you’re having a bad skin day, a good concealer is your savior. This one by Clé de Peau Beauté has been my go-to for the last couple of months. It’s super creamy, pigmented and really gets the job done. It covers up your blemishes without feeling too heavy and lasts all day which is great for events or days when I’m shooting. A tip I picked up from one of the CINCteam girls is to apply the concealer on the blemish and leave it there for about five minutes to let the formula soak into your skin. Then, gently blend the concealer into your skin! This also works for covering up any under eye circles!


Treating your skin with ice is a great way to get the blood flowing, especially first thing in the morning. Lots of celebrities use this trick to help get rid of their under eye bags! Ice is also a great pimple treatment. Wrap a cube of ice in a paper towel, and hold on the blemish to zap that zit! This is great to do right when you notice a blemish appearing, to stop it from maturing into a full-on angry pimple.

Bad skin days are never fun, but with these tips in your arsenal- they might be a little more bearable. Do you have any tricks you rely on for a bad skin day? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to check out my other bad skin day hacks on here!
