Follow these tips while wearing makeup on acne-prone skin, as shared by the dermatologist.
*Makeup products labelled as non-comedogenic and oil-free are products that are best for acne-prone skin.
*Avoid heavy liquid makeup. You might be tempted to use it but let your skin breathe too.
*Makeup products that make your skin breakout are products that you must stop using right away.
*Skin prep time is mandatory and non-negotiable. Always, always cleanse your face and apply your moisturiser, sunscreen before you apply makeup.
*Never apply makeup using your fingers. Make the best use of brushes and makeup applicators, and make sure you clean them regularly to avoid oil retention which might affect your skin further.
*Sharing is caring but in the makeup world, not sharing is skin-caring! Never ever share your makeup with someone else or use theirs. It causes contamination which may trigger acne, allergies, redness, etc.
*They say never go to bed upset. I say, never go to bed with your makeup on! Use oil-free makeup removal products and allow your skin to refresh and rejuvenate through the night.
“In case of any queries, confusions, or doubts, reach out to your dermatologist. It is always better to be safe than to be sorry,” she advised.
