Should I stop wearing makeup if I have acne?

Should I stop wearing makeup if I have acne?

The debate over wearing makeup while having acne is nothing new. In fact, many of us have hit those crossroads before and still face it. You have acne but you don't want people to see that you have acne, so you cover it up with makeup. But, wearing makeup may just exacerbate the problem so that you end up with more acne and you need more makeup to cover up. The more the acne continues to worsen, the less likely you are to want to take a break from the makeup. And so the cycle continues. 

So what do you do? What is the real answer here when it comes to wearing makeup with acne?

To start off, it is important to recognize how acne is caused in the first place. Simply put, when the body is undergoing a fluctuation of hormones, these hormones cause the oil glands to produce more sebum (oily matter released from sebaceous glands), which then block the skin's pores. Bacteria can grow in these pores, resulting in inflammation and breakouts.

There are various factors behind the initial causes of these hormone fluctuations, such as diet and stress

Makeup, although it may not be a cause, can worsen existing acne and lead to more acne breakouts as certain makeup products contain oil can clog the pores, thus promoting that bacterial growth. 

However, in some cases, makeup may actually be beneficial for your skin, especially if they are water-based and contain ingredients such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide (these are known to kill and prevent bacteria growth). Though, be careful with such products as they can dry out the skin, causing the skin to send the oil glands into overdrive and promote acne breakouts. It is important to always remove all makeup so as to allow the pores to breathe.

Other, natural forms of acne treatment and prevention would be tea tree oil. It is just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, without the added side effects. 

So should you stop wearing makeup if you have acne? While it would be ideal to help the skin breathe, you do not necessarily need to stop wearing makeup if you use the right makeup products and remember to take all other steps to helping your skin stay healthy.

AWESOME!!

I love Keeva!!! I found out about it while searching out things to use on adult acne. I used a product called Panoxyl to wash my face but heard tea tree oil is a great product too. I found a tea tree face wash and ordered Keeva to support it and wow!!!!! I can't believe how quickly my skin is healing, I only wish I took a before to show the after is amazing!!!! I will continue to be a customer! This product is a must have for those with dark spots, acne, and for those in the "40 n up club" (lol) with the hormonal acne leaving terrible dark spots. You will not regret your decision! Try it!

Great product!

Great product! It's only been a few days, seems to be working already!

Love, Love, Love

I've been using the tea tree oil moisturizer for a few months now and I absolutely love it! I use twice daily - at night before bed and in the morning under my makeup. I've noticed a significant improvement in my skin, which I've never noticed with any other products. Even using the moisturizer under makeup, it still gives results! I've recently purchased the acne serum for the first time and I am SO excited to try it. It's a wonderful feeling to trust a product and genuinely look forward to incorporating it into my routine. In addition, I placed my order on a Thursday and received it the following Monday - super fast shipping! I would highly recommend this product line to anyone.
