Mineral Makeup and Acne

Many people are convinced that mineral makeup is a more natural gentle makeup option because it is advertised as a makeup that is great for make people with skin problems such as eczema, acne and rosacea.

However, mineral makeup DO NOT treat acne. While most mineral makeup are non-comedogenic so it doesn’t clog pores or aggravate the acne, some brands do actually contain bismuth oxychloride which is an ingredient that causes skin irritation to certain people. So you’ll need to remember to check the ingredient label before purchasing one.

So the big question is should people with acne problems switch to mineral makeup? While switching to mineral makeup may give you some relief if your current makeup is causing the acne growth on your skin, many majority find the switch does not make any noticeable improvements.

The conclusion is not to expect mineral makeup to help improve or treat your acne problem but use mineral makeup because of the way it looks great on your skin.
