4. A layer of CC Cream provides the right amount of color-correction (hence its name!) while letting your real skin peek through.

5. Gentle chemical peels

Of course, the one true answer to skipping foundation is by having an immaculate complexion. Aside from a consistent, daily skincare regimen, reduce scars and lighten dark spots through gentle chemical peels. Your dermatologist or facialist can do this for you, or you can DIY it with a product with BHA, AHA, or glycolic acid.
