BEST Make-up for ACNE Skin – Make-up That HEALS YOUR SKIN


Hi! Welcome back. Christy here with Go See Christy Beauty Boutique. Today we’re going to talk about the best make-up for Acne. Now Acne skin is highly reactive to a lot of different ingredients and it is not the same for everyone who has Acne, with my experience, what I’ve seen. So here’s some common ingredients that you want to avoid that typically are “Comedogenic”. Comedogenic means it can “clog the pores”. So, the first well-know one is “Mineral Oil”. So, you want to avoid a lot of oils in your make-up anyways but Mineral Oil is one of them. The other one is “Lanolin”. So, Lanolin is sheep sebum. It is a yellow, thick, waxy sebum that is extracted from the wool, to keep the wool soft. And for people who have extremely dry skin, they like Lanolin. But for people who have breakout-prone or Acne skin, that’s not something that you want to have in your make-up. The other thing is, that can be highly irritant is “Synthetic Dyes” and “Synthetic Fragrances”. This can also be highly irritant to the skin. What things that you want to look for is a make-up that typically reduces the amount of oil on your skin, but it also regulates the moisture in your skin. Because if you have enough moisture in your skin, then you won’t produce as much oil. So, reducing oil, increasing moisture retention, but the other thing is, you want good coverage. People want to cover their Acne lesions. I typically like something that gives good coverage, but also increases the healing process of the Acne lesions. Now, some people really like “Stage Make-up” because of the good coverage. A lot of the Stage Make-up typically has oils in it to give that high pigment per-square-inch to give that good coverage. But then, it clogs the pores. So, typically I like to recommend a Mineral Make-up, a Mineral Powder. Now, you have to be careful because some of them are mineral BLENDS. And they blend it with a Talc, which is highly comedogenic, so it can clog the pores. And those are less expensive mineral-based make-up. You want something that is ALL mineral-based, and no synthetic frangrances, no synthetic dyes, no waxy substances or oils. The other thing is, I like to have a product that has Geranium, which is a natural “Anti-Seborrheic”. So, it’s an oil-balancing cleanser and it actually helps with Eczema. It has Lavender, Ylang Ylang, these are all natural anti-septics for the skin. So, obviously you want to avoid any Synthetic Preservatives as well. The Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lavender, those are all natural anti-septics as well. So it lowers the amount of bacteria on your skin. Gives good coverage, regulates sebum production, regulates moisture retention, and also gives that good coverage while HEALING the lesions, and is a natural anti-inflammatory. So, there is a make-up that I use at my boutique, it is a Paramedical line, meaning this line, you can’t get it at the stores. It was actually specifically designed for Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Licensed Estheticians, and it’s to address people who have Acne, maybe they have scars or post-laser peels that they want to help hide and heal. So, that’s what I typically recommend. The drugstore brand make-ups typically, not always, but typically they are mineral BLENDS, and you have to be careful. So if it has a high amount of Talc in it, and for some people, not always, but for some people, if it has a high amount of Corn Starch, also know as “Zea Mays”, you might want to avoid that as well. So, hopefully that helps you. Those are some of the ingredients that you want to look for in your make-up, if you have breakout-prone skin. So, thanks for watching! And we’ll see you in the next video. Bye!
