You may have seen the term, non-comedogenic, on the front of skincare and makeup labels. This word simply means that the ingredients in that particular product are proven to not block pores. Anyone who suffers from acne should only use products that are non-comedogenic in addition to being oil-free and paraben-free. Believe it or not, there are still makeup lines out there that contain ingredients that can clog your pores so read all labels carefully!
Many people think foundation is something that women “cake” on their face to cover every possible mark and flaw and leaves an apparent line between their jawline and neck. For anyone who still thinks this way, it’s a complete misconception. Perhaps in the days of Marilyn Monroe when “movie set makeup” was incredibly thick that was the truth but no more. In our modern society, foundation has completely revolutionized and is truly a staple to creating a beautiful canvass of the face – naturally.
Many acne sufferers are afraid to wear makeup because they think it will make their acne worse. Makeup is a beautiful thing but it is usually the last thing someone wants to put on their skin because they want their pores to breathe and heal. Others who suffer with acne refuse to leave their homes without makeup because they’re so embarrassed but what’s going on with their skin. Perhaps you had clear skin and the makeup you started to use made you breakout and now you’re scared to try anything else! Don’t be discouraged. There are just simple rules that need to be followed along with a few trials and errors but you will eventually find the best makeup for your skin.
