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.

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.

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.

Rashes

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

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.
