Conceal and Treat Simultaneously Lora Condon, author of "Spa Wars" and four-time winner of Spa Week's Best Facial, says that hiding the blemish with makeup is your best option if the pimple hasn't come to a head. "If it's a deep pimple underneath the skin (that feels like a pea), don't pop it," she says. According to Condon, a lot of damage (bleeding and even scarring) can be caused by people trying to pop pimples too soon. It's easier to conceal a red bump than a gushing wound or scab, she points out. Yes, indeed. Condon recommends makeup products with benzoyl peroxide (like Hydroxaton Anti Acne CC Cream) to conceal and treat the blemish.
