How does Effie’s skin stay blemish-free with all that crazy colorful make-up? Seriously, that stuff is caked on! While make-up can help cover blemish and make us feel confident, it is not always a friend to skin. The wrong make-up can clog pores and lead to even more acne. This week, let’s take a closer look at how you can prevent acne caused by your make-up.

Here are six tips:

#1: Opt for make-up products that list the following: non-greasy, non-comedogenic (or non-acnegenic), hypoallergenic, non-irritating, and oil-free.

#2: Certain ingredients may cause irritation and may clog pores easier than others. Fortunately, Acne.org shares a great list of ingredients to avoid. Familiarize yourself with this list and be sure to read labels when choosing products!

#3: Avoid products that have fragrance. This may irritate some skin types, especially sensitive skin.

#4: If you notice that your skin is itchy and/or irritated after using a product, stop use immediately.

#5: Stay clear of concealers and cover-ups that are heavy on the skin.

#6: Clean your make-up brushes! These bad boys are loaded with dead skin, dust, and who knows what else. If you are not going to clean them, replace them!

Did you get all this down, Effie? We’re ready to take a page out of your skin care guide, anyways! We hope that this information has been helpful, and we hope that you will experience clearer skin. ThatZit! Acne Treatment can help, too.

Enjoy Mockingjay Part 1!
