Makeup for patients with acne

Makeup for patients with acne

Acne should not be a reason to discontinue wearing makeup; indeed, makeup is used as a method of temporarily concealing small blemishes and scars. However, many makeup products can contain ingredients that can promote breakouts, so you need to be careful in your choice of makeup.

For acne-prone skin, we recommend using products labeled as “non-comedogenic” or “oil-free,” as these products will prevent clogging pores and oil buildup. 

We also recommend washing your face gently with your choice of cleanser. Then prep your skin by applying sunscreen; then apply an acceptable moisturizer. Finally, apply your makeup. 

Lastly, we recommend that you not wear your makeup for a prolonged period. Regularly clean any applicators used. 

We have no financial relationship with any of the companies that manufacture the products listed below. The products are not listed in any particular order. 

We have not tried the products ourselves, but we would appreciate your feedback.

Below are some foundation/concealer options recommended by both dermatologists and patients for acne-prone skin:

I am getting facial treatments from Dr. Comite since 18 years. After having seen other Dermatologists before I would never see anybody else after Dr.Comite. He is very professional and caring as well as trusting. A very consistent Dermatologist with a lot of knowledge. Thank you..
