Make-up Essentials for Acne Prone Skin

If anything is worse than bad makeup habits, it is makeup on acne prone skin. Acne can happen due to many reasons such as oily skin, improper skincare, genetic, bad eating habits and using products not suitable for the skin. 

Although we are tempted to use cosmetics but using them can be disastrous for the skin. It can cause burning sensation, redness of the skin and itchiness making things worse for your skin. Here are few makeup essentials for acne prone skin that will love your skin without making it breakout.

Makeup for sensitive skin

Always us makeup products that are designed for sensitive skin. Acne can increase sensitivity of your skin making it react with the product used. You can invest in some of the high end product ranges with good shelf life.

Avoid oily or cream based products

You must love that smooth look given by cream base foundation but it is not a good friend of your skin. Acne is caused mostly on oily skin. Using oil or cream based products is going to make things worse.

Keep it matte keep it classy

Matte foundation, moisturizers, face powder, blush and eye shadows, all of them are great for acne prone skin. They will reduce the oiliness of your skin while giving a good coverage.

Use mineral based products

Mineral based products such as foundation, primer and face powder works amazing on acne prone skin. Since they have a lot of minerals in them, these products benefit in reducing redness and itchiness caused by acne.

Keep blotting paper handy

While going outdoors or on a day when you need to look fabulous with little time for touchups, blotting papers can work wonders for your skin. You can get rid of the moisture on your skin keeping it supple and glowy. 

Make CTM your friend

At the end of the day, always remember to take of your makeup using CTM regime. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing regularly is a must for acne prone skin. You can use water based instead of the oil-based ones. CTM ranges are available for acne prone skin as well.
