Yes! However, you want to look for foundations that are non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested, fragrance-free, sensitive skin-tested, and allergy tested. This will ensure you don't have any side effects from the foundation. All Dermablend foundations follow these dermatologist standard guidelines so you can trust you're using the best foundation for acne prone skin.
What makeup to use to cover acne?
To cover acne and acne-prone skin, use makeup that is oil free and non-comedogenic. Non-comedogenic means it will not cause any congestion like blackheads (open comedones) or milia (closed comedones) on the skin. Dermablend's Flawless Creator Liquid Foundation Drops is our best foundation for acne prone skin as it is oil-free and weightless.
What ingredient in makeup causes acne?
While people can breakout from any ingredient, the main ingredients considered to cause acne or breakouts are: Isopropyl Myristate, Lanolin, and D&C dyes. Dermablend foundations are formulated without these ingredients so they will not clog pores and create acne.
People with acne or oily skin may prefer a powder because it feels weightless and has a matte finish. However, you can also use a liquid foundation that is oil-free and non-comedogenic like Dermablend's Flawless Creator Liquid Foundation Drops without worrying about clogging your pores. Non-comedogenic means the formula will not clog pores and create blackheads (open comedones) or milia (closed comedones). If you use a liquid foundation, you can use a setting powder on top of it to mattify the finish and help control excess oil.
