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 help your skin stay healthy.

Life saver, will definitely keep up with it!

I first ordered the Keeva Organics tea tree acne cream and literally after the first use I fell in love. It feels so good on the skin, and it leaves the best tingly feeling so you know it’s working. I put this on after washing my face at night and sometimes in the morning, I always see a good difference the next day! I also bought the essential oils face wash by Keeva and was surprised that it doesn’t foam, but it works just as good! It leaves a good clean feeling and scent. Thankyou Keeva!

Loving keeva!!

I absolutely love this cream it feels anazing makes my skin soft and is clearing my acne!

Love it

This is the easiest skin care routine you could ask for! it’s simple but effective. A month ago I was too embarrassed to leave the house without makeup, my face breaks out so bad then just when it gets better it comes back- but i’ve been using this for about a month and it’s been life changing! actually a week into using it even it was life changing! I highly recommend it to all my friends all the time because it’s the best decision i’ve made self care wise. I LOVE it !!

My daughter loves this keeva acne cream. The scent is refreshing and it’s the only thing gentle enough for her sensitive skin. All other acne creams have made her face red or peel! I love that it is all natural.
