If your skin is prone to breakouts, choosing an acne-safe makeup can be transformative.
Many types of makeup can cause breakouts. When you experience acne, you may be tempted to use even more makeup to cover it up. Unfortunately, this can lead to irritation and clogged pores that make your breakouts even worse. This can be the start of a vicious cycle of needing even more makeup to try and cover your acne – and that only makes it harder to get clear skin.
When you use makeup with the right ingredients, however, it can give you flawless coverage without worsening your breakouts.
A question we hear frequently is, “Does makeup cause acne?” The true answer (although not a simple yes or no) is, “It can.” The way that makeup causes pimples and acne flares, however, can vary.
Breakouts occur when your pores get clogged, leading to overproduction of oils in your glands and providing a place where bacteria can thrive. If you use makeup that contains pore-clogging ingredients, the result is inevitable. Likewise, if the product has any irritating or drying ingredients, you can also experience problems.
But this isn’t the only way you can experience makeup related breakouts. Your brushes, sponges and other applicator tools can also harbor bacteria and oils that can cause breakouts and acne flares.
Just as cosmetic products can cause your skin to break out, makeup can also worsen currently problems. Using foundation, concealer and blemish-covering makeup – especially when used to excess – can perpetuate and potentially worsen the problem.
The good news is that not all makeup will cause your acne to get worse.
To be acne safe, makeup products must be specially formulated without ingredients that dry out or irritate sensitive skin and that do not clog the pores. In addition, products might also contain certain beneficial ingredients, such as those that exfoliate and unblock pores.
Even if you do find products that discourage – or at least don’t encourage – acne flareups, you still deserve effective, natural-looking coverage. Otherwise, what’s the point of wearing makeup at all?
So, where do you find the best acne safe makeup?
In most cases, you won’t find the best makeup for acne in the drug store or even at a department store cosmetics counter. Many cosmetic brands offer what they describe as acne safe foundation and makeup options. However, you might find that even the most expensive brands leave you with ongoing problems.
