Acne is a type of purulent inflammation of the skin, which is characterized by the appearance of blackheads, pus-filled pimples, extensive red areas and increased sebum secretion.
Women hide their acne with makeup, which is completely normal. Still, no woman feels good with all those pimples on her face.
However, makeup mistakes can worsen acne or cause acne to appear on otherwise he althy skin.
What are these mistakes to avoid?
1. You're using the wrong foundation
Technically, most types of makeup do not cause acne because they are dermatologically tested. There are specially developed cosmetic products with a hypoallergenic or antibacterial composition.However, some products can cause acne. It is recommended to use those types of foundations that are based on mineral composition. They do not clog pores and do not cause purulent inflammations.
2. You're covering up with too much foundation
Even the gentlest formula backfires when in too much. Skin can't breathe, makeup clogs pores. They collect bacteria, fat deposits, air pollution, which cause acne.
3. You apply foundation with your fingers
There are many bacteria on the fingers that remain even after washing hands if no antibacterial soap is used. Use another means of applying makeup - brush, sponge, which you clean regularly.
4. You use dirty makeup brushes and sponges
It is not good to apply with fingers, but with makeup tools. Yes, but if they are also dirty, the risk of acne is high. Replace or clean your makeup brushes and sponges regularly to protect your skin.
5. Sleep with your makeup on
Sleeping with make-up significantly increases the risk of the appearance of purulent inflammations and blackheads on the skin. Inadequate makeup removal also poses a risk. Make sure you clean your face thoroughly and thoroughly before going to bed.
