Is Aloe Vera the Key to Hiding (and Healing) Your Pimples?

Pimples are the worst. They're red, they're sore, and they command more attention from onlookers than you'd like. So when they rear their ugly heads (literally), you immediately cover them with makeup. You know you should treat them with a pimple-clearing product and then let your skin breathe, but you don't. You want those pesky zits out of plain sight, pronto.

Well, now there's an option that allows you to cover blemishes with makeup without fear of aggravating the area or making your zits worse. Hurrah!

Enter Instagrammer @rubiitofficial's ingenious makeup hack that involves aloe vera. Yes, the gel found in the leaves of the aloe plant that's our go-to natural soothing treatment for sunburn.

When pimples pop up, RubiiT applies a light coat of aloe vera gel on top of her breakouts, allows it to dry, and then applies her foundation and concealer on top. Not only does the aloe vera help calm and soothe any redness, it also creates a smooth barrier between the makeup and the blemishes. This means germs stay out, and your makeup stays put.

Clever, huh?
