Does anybody recommend a particular brand of make up that is safe to use on acne skin? I dont want anything that clogs pores
Thanks for answering - your answer appears below
I would recommend 100% mineral make-up brands,as these will be healing and protective of the skin.The brands my clients like are Dermaminerals,by Dermapure and Bare Escentuals.These are powder and liquid minerals and can be ideal for either light or heavier coverage
You should try to stick to mineral make up. Try Bare Essentials. Body Shops Mineral Range is very good as well. I use it a lot with my clients and so far had only positive feedback. Have converted a lot of modelsto use 100% mineral make up whos skin gets very irritable from time to time. How bad is the acne? Are you using special skincare?
I agree with both of my colleagues however, I would add that you want to make sure that you cleanse thoroughly and apply an appropriate moisturizer before applying any make-up.
I completely agree. Mineral make up is the best choice on skin that has potential to inflammation and acne.
There are a lot of specialist products available from skin specialists to help the underlying cause too. Obagi has some fantastic systems suitable for different skin types, pigments and ages. Designed to penetrate through the skin layers and treat the problems where they start. Glo Therapeutics and NeoStrata have other systems in place too for different skin conditions.
Back to the make up brands - try Glo Mineral make up it is excellent and you can be trained to camouflage problem areas if needed. Laura Mercier has another good range of mineral products.
