makeup tips for acne prone skinMany women can't leave the house without it. And we spend hours and hours of our lives reading about it, applying it and buying it. We're talking about makeup. And there's a reason it is a billion dollar business. But if you have acne-prone skin, navigating the tricky world of color cosmetics and deciding what to wear on your skin can be very confusing and can even be detrimental if you don't know what to look for--and what to avoid. Acne-prone skin is also sensitive skin. When deciding what makeup to use on when you have breakouts, it's important to take great care in reading the ingredients and making sure the makeup won't clog the pores or create further irritation. Makeup Ingredient No-No's for Acne-Prone Skin The ingredients on our watchdog list for acne-prone skin can do anything from clog pores to cause sensitivity. When looking at makeup ingredients in general, we advise going with the less is more approach, meaning the fewer ingredients present, the better. Avoid makeup with parabens, mineral oil, fragrance, lanolin oil, coconut butter or lauric acid. These ingredients can clog pores or allergic reactions. Ingredients to Look For If you have acne-prone skin, chances are you also battling oiliness and shine. Acne is a byproduct of an overproduction of sebum, which makes our skin super-oily. One way to combat shine and oil is to use a foundation or a makeup primer with silicone. A great ingredient for absorbing oil, silicone also has a very low incident of allergic reactions. Some outstanding primers include Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 and Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector.
