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.

Its worth the money spent my skin started to look clear with in two weeks of using it! I love and will keep purchasing keeva organics! ❤️

absolutely amazing

my cousin has recommended this product to me and it has absolutely changed my life! it’s kept my breakouts at bay and helped control my acne

A wonderful night cream!

After years of using a popular, often dermatologist-recommended ointment with no results but high expense, I turned to Keeva's
anti-aging cream. Almost immediately I was pleased with smoother face skin, less visible discoloration, and brighter quality. I'm now
on my second jar, a third is on my bathroom shelf, and I have paid for all three for less than one--one!--of my former skin treatments.
I am soooo enthusiastic about Keeva--you will be, too.


My skin seems to like it:)

I’ve been using anti acne cream for less than a month now and so far it’s been great!
I have sensitive skin and it didn’t cause break out when I started using it. It helped with occasional acne pretty fast! Also; it didn’t dry out my skin and it’s very refreshing.
I am not sure yet how much it prevents future acne, but it did help clear my skin.


I love Keeva Acne Cream so much. My skin looks so much better after having used it for a bit. It helps my pores and scars
