Acnegenic Ingredients to Avoid in Skin Products & Zit Friendly Make-up

Acnegenic and Non-acnegenic Make-upIf you have acne, makeup does not have to be off limits to you. Yes, natural skin is wonderful yet when you are dealing with a zit breakout, you may simply want to cover it up. While self-esteem and self-confidence springs up from deep down inside of you, there is nothing wrong with getting a temporary, external boost, like from wearing make-up.

Choosing the appropriate type of makeup allows you to wear makeup without needing to worry about the health of your sensitive skin.

Makeup options:

1. Regular Makeup

Regular makeup can contain acnegenic ingredients, like lanolin, fragrance, dyes and mineral oil, that may cause a zit breakout or aggravate current zits.

Lanolin is known for it’s moisturizing properties yet it can cause skin pores to clog and trigger a zit outbreak.

D and C red pigments may be the heart of color in makeup, yet they are coal tar derivatives which have acnegenic properties.

Mineral oil  is a preserving agent and helps to retain moisture yet it has been proven to cause and exacerbate zits.

2. Non-acnegenic and Non-comedogenic Makeup

Makeup labeled as non-acnegenic does not contain ingredients known to cause zit breakouts.

Makeup labeled noncomedogenic does not contain ingredients that will cause comedones, or blocked pores.

Makeup Tips to Minimize Zits

1. Before applying makeup, rinse your face with water, and a gentle cleanser. The makeup needs a fresh, clean surface to highlight your best features.

2. Use a brush dedicated to only foundation, to apply the foundation. For those hard to reach places under your nose and your eyes, use your clean fingers to gently apply the foundation.

3. Apply too much powder and it will be difficult to remove any mistakes. Instead apply the thinnest layer and apply additional strokes as needed.

4. Non-acnegenic and non-comedogenic lipstick may fade during the day so apply frequently.

5. If you are applying blush, use a faint amount of blush and stroke upwards while you smile to highlight your cheekbones.

In addition to acnegenic makeup there is acnegenic sunscreen. Read the label carefully to avoid fragrance, which is an acnegenic ingredient added to many regular sunscreens.
