Is it okay to use my wife's concealer?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Ask your dermatologist if it is safe for you to use your wife's concealer. It may or may not be the best choice for your skin. Men typically have slightly darker, redder skin than women because the blood flow to the skin is somewhat greater than in women, and because men often don't protect their skin from sun exposure as well as women do. Therefore, a concealer that works well on your wife's skin may not be the best shade for your skin. If you want to neutralize excessive redness in your skin, look for a concealer that has green undertones; the green neutralizes the red in your skin. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
