6 Quick Fixes for When You've Got a Skin Emergency
Yes, there is such a thing as a 'bad skin day.'
ART Clare Magno

There are times when we wake up and find weird things on our skin, like surprise zits or just totally blah complexion. Fret not, because we've found genius solutions to rescue you. Read on to see the fast-acting solutions you can try to tame a misbehaving complexion.

Shiny as the moon T-zone

Instead of powdering your face and caking it, blot with a mattifying primer.

Try: Celeteque 24-Hour Photoready Mattifying Primer, P825, at department stores

Tired and sweaty skin

Harassed from your commute? Spritz on an energizing face mist to perk up your complexion. You can also get one that dries up and prevents pimples just like the one below. 

Try: Beach Born Healing Toner, P280, at Instagram/Beachbornph

Dull skin

An instant fix would be to dab a creamy blush on the apples of the cheeks and set the face with a finely-milled luminous powder that never looks too shiny.

Try: Laura Mercier Candleglow sheer Perfecting Powder, at Rustan's

Zits

Concealer will always be the quickest way to hide a zit. Start with a green one to cancel out the redness, and follow it up with a sheer layer of a skin tone-matching one.

Try: Revlon Photoready Concealer, at department stores

Patchy skin

Whether you've got oily skin or not, we can occasionally get dry patches on our skin due to the weather or even bad airconditioning. Quench it right away by anointing it with a few drops of serum, or a tiny amount of gel moisturizer.

Try: The Face Shop the therapy secret-made anti-aging cream, Free State

Rashes

Carefully apply a calming multi-purpose balm on the area. But if the condition worsens, see a doctor ASAP.

Try: This Works in transit turbo balm, Sephora

Ed's note: These are all but instant remedies for common skin emergencies. A consistent skin care regimen will always be key to have a flawless and glowing complexion.
