Is it a myth that makeup clogs your pores? No, unfortunately it’s not. The ingredients in some foundations and powders are known to be comedogenic (we know, devastating). This is why it’s so important to know and understand what you’re purchasing. Finding makeup that will not clog pores can be the difference between naturally healthy skin and battling every day.
What Makeup To Be Wary Of
In general, the long-wear, heavier coverage liquids and powder foundations are the ones to be wary of (and may be the cause of your acne prone skin). The reason for this is people tend to from a vicious circle where skin breakouts occur. They reach for the harsh scrubs and ingredients. The skin gets angrier, so they decide to use the heaviest, quickest coverage foundation they can find. We understand, heavier foundation gives a sense of security. Knowing that your blemishes are covered for the duration of the day is a relief. This is only a 12 hour (at max) fix though.
You still need to wash that foundation off in the evening and deal with the issues waiting for you. Isn’t it best to have your skin assessed, find the root of the issue, treat, repair and move on? No one wants acne, large pores and uneven angry skin to deal with every single day. Plus, covering up never feels as wonderful as clear skin.
Instead of stocking the cupboards with long wear foundation, we recommend having your skin analysed and a treatment plan put in place. We also recommended using a sheer to medium coverage foundation (no matter the condition of your skin) and using a concealer only on the areas of the face needed. Try and avoid powders where possible, unless you know the ingredients are good for your skin, like micronized minerals and antioxidants. The last thing you want to be applying to your skin are ingredients like parabens, talc, fragrance, SLS and mineral oils. Keep in mind that all our makeup ranges are non-comedogenic, so you can browse our ranges knowing your skin is in good hands.
