Makeup mistakes that can cause acne

Posted by

Did you know that some makeup mistakes could actually be the causes of acne? Things like pore-clogging makeup, dirty tools and sponges, and bad habits like not removing your makeup before bedtime can actually worsen your acne or even give rise to new zits. Read on to know the most common makeup mistakes that could be contributing to your breakouts.

  1. Applying makeup with your fingers

Are you aware of the fact that your fingers carry a lot of germs and have the potential to harm your skin? Well, you should use a makeup brush to apply makeup and clean it regularly.

  1. Using the wrong foundation

Certain ingredients in your foundation or the wrong texture of the product can clog pores and give rise zits.

  1. Covering acne with a lot of foundation

If you struggle with acne, there is a pretty good chance that you tend to cover up your acne with a lot of foundation. Doing this can delay the healing process of your acne and lead to irritation.

  1. Sharing makeup

Whether you are getting ready for a big night out or are simply trying out your best friend's makeup products, sharing makeup is a big NO! Using the same products as someone else means you are familiarizing their bacteria and oils to your skin which, in turn, can irritate your skin or cause acne breakouts. You are also upping the risk of infection.

  1. Wearing makeup everyday

Just as wearing too much makeup can cause or worsen acne flare-ups, wearing it every single day give your skin few opportunities to breathe. You should try going without any makeup at least one day a week.

  1. Using expired products

Your makeup products come with an expiration date on them. Expired makeup can haven bacteria, and liquid or cream-based products are the worst offenders. When you repeatedly apply that old makeup to your skin, you are stacking on the bacteria as it grows.

  1. Not taking off your makeup at night

No matter how tired you are, you absolutely must take off your makeup every single night. You should wash your face thoroughly before you go to bed.

Avoiding the aforementioned makeup mistakes can definitely help you to get the best skin you deserve.
