Makeup is generally the saving grace for anyone who has acne, acne scars or blemishes. Using a foundation gives you the confidence to feel good and look good. Makeup effectively smoothes out your skin tone making blemishes and acne scars less visible or it might even be able to hide them completely. As good as this sounds though, using makeup to cover acne might be preventing you from having clear skin. Makeup is not the cause of acne and neither does it make acne worse. But there are some times it might be bad for your skin. In this post, I’m going to tell you when it is actually harmful to use makeup to cover acne.
Let’s get one thing clear first. Makeup does not cause acne. If you have mild acne you can safely use makeup. If you have one or two pimples on your face, you can safely use makeup. However having said that, please remember that whichever it is, whether you have acne or if your skin is clear, always use good quality makeup that is not old or out of date. Skin care is not the place to be stingy.
