How Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch calms skin and camouflages dark spots
After you pop or patch a pimple, skin is often left with dry patches, flakes, bumpy texture or a dark spot (or any combination of those). It’s like an annoying extension of the breakout, and it can often last longer than the pimple itself.
Originally inspired by first aid ointment, Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch helps replenish, soothe and color-correct skin with powerful ingredients:
As a humectant moisturizer, Beta Glucan is known to attract water to the top layers of skin. Its deep hydration and antioxidant properties help nourish dry skin. Working together with skin-restoring Oligopeptides, Beta Glucan can revitalize and replenish blemish-ravaged skin.
Also known as provitamin B5, Panthenol is known to function both as a humectant, attracting water to the skin, and as an emollient, softening and smoothing flaky, irritated post-pimple skin.
Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch uses hi-tech Apricot Encapsulated Pigments that activate as you blend, neutralizing dark spots and marks in seconds with sheer camouflaging magic.
Rescue and repeat
After a pimple pops (or you remove a Mighty Patch), use Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch as the last step in your AM skincare routine. Simply use your favorite cleanser (we like one with salicylic acid or another BHA to exfoliate), continue with your usual skincare steps, apply SPF and then blend Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch on the desired area (or all over). Watch the magic happen and repeat daily for as long as you’d like.

Who should use Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch?
This tinted after-blemish balm is great for all skin types and specifically formulated for medium to medium-deep skin tones.

Not at all! Think of Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch as a skincare-makeup hybrid. The tint gives you incredibly sheer color-correcting coverage, while powerful, skin-soothing ingredients nourish and moisturize skin.
You can use it anywhere on your body – for dry patches, flakes, scaly texture or dark spots – Rescue Balm +Dark Spot Retouch delivers mega moisture, whenever and wherever you need it.
