The best ways to apply makeup on acne

When you are suffering from acne you need to be careful of what you wear on your skin because the wrong cream or powder can aggravate your condition. However, the right product can, not just camouflage your acne marks but also lend an elusive iridescence to your skin.

If you are suffering from mild acne you must preferably apply light makeup like a daily-wear foundation and a concealer which is non-comedogenic. When you have acne you should avoid clogging of pores and so, must not use heavy makeup that cakes up on your face. In the initial phase, while undergoing treatments, it is best to avoid makeup till the eruptions settle a bit.

In the later course of the treatment, when you have only acne marks left on your skin, then it is completely okay to wear light makeup. Covering marks with makeup could also boost one's confidence.

For acne prone skin, always apply makeup which is paraben-free or oil-free or lanolin-free and non-comedogenic. Choosing the right product is essential. If you have oily skin, you should never use a creamy, hydrating moisturiser. Rather, you should use a primer, a good foundation and then dust powder on top of it.

Use light makeup just to conceal the marks during the day. But you need to make sure to keep your face makeup free at night or when at home, to avoid clogging of pores. Do not use oil as a makeup remover if you have acne. Opt for a double cleansing with a cleanser to remove makeup followed by a medicated face wash.
