This liquid bandage costs $4 here. It's an antiseptic treatment that covers cuts, wounds, and dry or cracked skin. Basically, it protects your skin while it heals and lets it breathe.

IMPORTANT: A liquid bandage should not be used on a daily basis for covering up acne. Talk a dermatologist if your acne is persistent or if you have a reaction to the product.

It works especially well to cover pimples because concealer can stick to the bandage instead of your skin, which means the cover-up can actually last a full day.

Not to mention the fact that you won't be putting makeup directly onto acne, which can hinder the healing process, especially if you've popped the pimple.

Start by washing your face.

To minimize bacteria on your skin, wash your hands before washing your face. Dry your skin with a clean towel or a paper towel.
