Cosmetics to Help Cover-Up and Prevent Acne Prone Skin
If you don't clean your skin properly with gentle products, dead cells accumulate clogging pores which can lead to acne. Using a lot of concealers and cosmetic foundations to cover up acne, can also lead to clogged pores and acne.
Instead, follow the easy steps below for clear complexion:
Use a gentle cleanser two times a day to clean impurities, oil and makeup. Make sure to use the type of cleanser that's right for your skin type.
Alcohol free toner with alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) is helpful in drying out acne and balancing the pH of skin.
Only use an oil-free moisturizer, specially if you have oily complexion.
A non-abrasive exfoliating scrub will do wonders to help remove dead cells, helping healthy cells to rise to the surface.
Oil free concealer in a yellow base can help blemishes disappear. Dab on blemishes or acne scar with a clean brush gently and blend. Choose a shade closest to your own complexion.
Loose mineral foundation is ideal for acne prone skin. Make sure to choose one that's free of bismouth oxychloride. This ingredient has a tendency to clog pores.
Use yellow based concealer and foundation closest to your complexion. This tends to hide the breakout best by helping to neutralize the red.
