If you suffer from blemish-prone skin, no doubt you’ve been told that makeup can make it worse, however this is not entirely true! Although acne can form if cosmetics are not washed off correctly, makeup itself is not the root cause. However, if you are prone to pimples, we recommend reaching for cosmeceutical cosmetics that are created by Dermatologists to help improve your complexion. Not sure where to start? We’ve rounded up the top products that are specially designed for blemish-prone skin.
If you’re after a natural looking finish, the Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup is the perfect foundation for you. The lightweight formula provides a natural to medium coverage to help cover up discolouration or redness caused by acne. Infused with blemish busting ingredients, this foundation not only helps to reduce pimples, but also works to prevent any new ones forming – win win! Another great thing about this foundation is that it doesn’t cling onto dry patches, so you can create a smooth, soothed canvas with ease.
If you prefer a little more coverage, the iconic VICHY Dermablend Covermatte Compact Powder Foundation is your go-to. Perfect for oily and acne-prone skin, the formula helps to shrink the appearance of pores whilst improving the overall texture of your skin. Infused with Zinc Gluconate and Salicylic Acid, the foundation offers up to 12 hours of full, buildable coverage to help you create the ultimate non-cakey finish. With added dermatological benefits the product also works to reduce blemish causing bacteria and breakouts so you can feel confident in your complexion.
Straight from your TikTok screens, Dr.Jart+ is back with another game-changing beauty staple, this time it’s the Dr.Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm. The perfect hybrid between skincare and cosmetics, this lightweight formula helps to balance out your skin tone, blur the look of blemishes and minimise the appearance of dark spots. Infused with SPF45, it’s also great to help protect your skin against sun damage and environmental aggressors.
Another staple from VICHY is the Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation. This is a great alternative if you prefer a more dewy finish. Developed by experts to help camouflage skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and scarring, this lightweight fluid will shortly become your new makeup bag favourite. Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, the foundation is also infused with SPF35 and can last up to 16 hours so you can create flawless skin from dawn till dusk.
Take your no-makeup-makeup look to the next level with the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte SPF40 . If you’re not a fan of full coverage or want something sheer to wear on your makeup free days, this is the perfect alternative. The formula is infused with detoxifying Charcoal and Tea Tree extract to help soothe your blemishes and deeply nourish your complexion.
