The Best Makeup for Acne Prone Skin

When you have acne prone skin it can be difficult to find makeup that doesn't worsen the problem.  Most makeup products have harsh and/or harmful ingredients that can cause breakouts, clog pores, or irritate your skin.  So, what's the best makeup for acne prone skin?

When choosing makeup products try to opt for natural makeup products.  Why?  Well, products that are made with natural ingredients will have less harmful chemicals and irritants, which means they are less likely to cause or worsen breakouts.  You also want to avoid makeup that contains added oil or SPF.  Both of these things can clog pores and lead to breakouts.  If you need SPF, try to find an all natural SPF and us it separately from your makeup.  Look for "oil free" on the product labels.  Since people with acne are prone to clogged pores, it is important that your makeup products are non-comedogenic.  This basically means that it will not clog your pores.  So, to sum it all up:

  • Choose all-natural as often as possible
  • Opt for oil-free makeup products
  • Avoid added SPF
  • Always be sure to use non-comedogenic products
