Acne gets worse because of makeup
There are some makeups that can clog pores and lead to pimples but there are also products that can improve acne. Experts suggest mineral foundations that are powder-based with certain ingredients like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and silica. These products help absorb oils that can clog the pores. For liquid foundation, use non-comedogenic products which mean they don’t promote acne according to the standards of the cosmetics company.
