Make Up and Acne

by - September 06, 2016
Just doing some research on google about "Does wearing Make up can cause acne to our skin" So what I got is, makeup and acne, they're like magnets. If you have one (acne), you likely need the other (makeup), but, on the other hand, if you use one (makeup) it may cause the other (acne). What gives?!

For those of you who wear makeup without getting acne this is not a problem…but then there's the rest of us! Makeup varies tremendously between brands in terms of quality and ingredients, and technically speaking, makeup does not cause acne. Some people get acne without ever wearing a stitch of makeup, and others who wear makeup all the time may never get a pimple, well you see?



In my perception, those who have acne a lot of your face, I recommend you to not wear make up all the time, please do not use a heavy foundation without clean it deeply. In my previous post about "My Acne Story" when I was a teenager who had pimples, I never wear make up on my skin this is because during my time, make up is not a trend for a 90s teenager like me well zaman ni jer yang sibuk pung pang budak-budak pakai mekap pergi sekolah kan. What I did is, cure it before you cover it!

During my time when I still have pimples, I only use press powder by Clinelle. It is a Non-Comedogenic product, also no fragrance, no mineral oil, no artificial coloring, and no lanolin. You should try it, I bought at Watsons for only RM16 that time. Take a look at this entry for Clinelle press powder review - Click Me.



If you have acne but you wearing heavy makeup, it can definitely aggravate acne or make acne worse. Sometimes this is the result of makeup wearers not realizing that they are sensitive or allergic to certain ingredients. Other times, it may be that they're forgetting to take their makeup off after a day of wear, therefore clogging up or blocking pores. And while most people cleanse their face daily, they may unknowingly fail at completely removing their makeup. But, let's be clear: It's NOT the makeup alone that causes acne. These issues associated with makeup have the potential to worsen, aggravate, or even trigger acne in some people.

Treatments for Makeup Induced Acne

Use Non Comedogenic Brands

Makeup induced breakouts can be easily treated by paying attention to the ingredients in the makeup you’re using. To get rid of acne cosmetica, the first thing you should do is switch to a non-comedogenic brand.

Clean Your Brushes and Tools

Take a look at what you’re applying your makeup with and make sure that your brushes and tools are clean and sanitary. A main cause of inflammatory acne is caused from bacteria that lives your dirty brushes and old sponges. This same bacteria gets transferred to your face where it starts to flourish.



Wash your Face

Keeping makeup on your face for long periods of time makes it more likely to settle into your pores. You should always wash your face before bed!

Listen to Your Skin

If you’re noticing breakouts when you use certain products, stop using them and see if it clears up. Everyone’s skin reacts differently so keep an eye on your face and eventually you’ll start to discover patterns.
