Listen, the solution to a bad skin day is always proper, sustained care,. The only problem is it’s not exactly an instant fix–something many of us look for on days we prefer to keep our blemishes out of sight and off our minds. So, we move on to the next best thing: a full-coverage foundation.

While your serums and creams work their gradual magic, these heavy duty foundations will cover everything you need them to, without disrupting the healing process. See the 5 foolproof formulas, below!
