Make up for Acne

Does anyone know of a good foundation or powder I can use for my face that won't make me break out and will work on clearing my skin while wearing it? I wanted to try one my mom used to use a foundation made by Clearasil but I can not find any in the stores.

Re: Make up for Acne

Neutrogena skin clearing foundation is good. It can be found in most drug stores and ive had good results.
My favorite foundation to date is Bare Minerals, they have a 'matte' formula that i've been using on my acne prone skin for quite a while, and it keeps my acne and oil under control. The only down side is its a bit pricy, but one container should last about 2 months. Also, theres no acne medication in this foundation, rather that it just wont aggravate it further.

Make sure you're drinking alot of water, reducing your stress, and refrain from touching your face with your fingers. Wash your face before bed, thats when your skin heals itself. Also a diet filled with heavily processed foods will make your skin break out, most people don't make that connection.
Getting a prescription for birth control can also do wonders for your skin if your acne is caused by hormonal imbalances.

i hope i helped!
