Some people might actually be only wearing makeup to conceal their current skin condition. Even if you have a pimple-pocked face, when you apply foundation, highlighters, contour,blushes and concealers could actually give the illusion that you have a clear, smooth skin.
Acne cosmetica is generally mild. However, those with sensitive skin should be more careful with their makeup. Makeup can cause minor irritation characterized by itching and redness but it can also cause serious allergies where your skin would itch, swell and form blisters. What brings about this irritation are actually added ingredients like preservatives and fragrances present in the makeup. To avoid this, one should carefully choose the makeup she will be using. Always look for fragrance-free, oil-free, non comedogenic or hypoallergenic high quality makeup.
Also, do not layer up other types of products on top of make up or put makeup on top of a topical acne treatment for example. In short, stack up as less products as possible. If you think that your acne is getting worse and worse after using a certain product, go find a different product. Do a little research to find out what brand fit your needs. Finding the right, high quality makeup plus a thorough daily cleansing routine would mean acne-free, beautiful looking skin.
Choose your makeup wisely and always maintain a good skin care routine. With this in mind you can get rid of acne.
