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.
1. Shiny as the moon T-zone
Instead of powdering your face and caking it, blot with a mattifying primer.

Harassed from your commute? Spritz on an energizing face mist to perk up your complexion. You can also get one that dries up and prevents pimples just like the one below. We’ve got more recommendations here.

3. Dull skin
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
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. Here’s a thorough guide on how to do it.

5. 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.

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