Can I Safely Wear Makeup While I Have Acne?


One of the most common remedies for acne is to get over makeup. This is not a new practice, as it has been for centuries.

To answer the question completely, you must understand the root cause of acne.

Acne begins when the sebaceous glands, the oil producing glands of the skin, are safer from the oil, sebum than the skin can bear. This excess of sebum then combines with the dead skin cells and this mixture in turn clogs the pores of the skin. This may be due to many different factors such as hormonal changes, stress, foods, dairy products, etc.

Acne can occur at virtually any age. Although this is the most common among teens, it is certainly not uncommon in adults. In fact, about 50% of women suffer from acne outbreaks sometimes in their lives.

Most make-up products are formulated with the aid of oil-based products or oil-based products mixed with fine powder. Since this combination is basically the same mixture as sebum and dead skin cells, it should not be used or at worst used sparingly and cautiously.

To aggravate the impact of using this type of product, it is quite common that the wearer applies it several times a day and does not clean it completely at night. If you have acne or you are prone to acne, you should avoid this type of makeup.

There are makeup products that do not use products derived from oil or oil. These can be used in most cases, but the same precaution to use it sparingly and caution is recommended. With these products, it is also strongly recommended that all traces of the product be thoroughly cleaned, not just washed, of your face every night before going to bed.

A third type of makeup is now available and seems to offer a better solution. The mineral makeup has the ability not only to provide the cosmetic properties of other makeups, it better covers the blemishes of acne than other makeup products and soothes your skin for a flawless natural complexion.

In addition to the properties already mentioned, mineral makeup is actually good for the skin:

• Provides a protective shield against the environment,

• Is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory,

• Contains vitamins a, E and D plus lavender-based aromatherapy oils

• Non-comedogenic (does not clog pores in the skin)

• Risk of allergy virtually zero ,

• Has natural nutrients to regenerate skin and neutralize free radicals,

• Is approved by plastic surgeons and dermatologists.

As with so many other good ideas, there is great caution to watch out for, make sure that the product you are buying is a pure mineral makeup and meets the criteria set out above. It should never be combined with other items, especially products derived from oil or oil.
