No matter what size it is, whether it’s one small red dot or a cluster or annoying bumps all over your face, having acne is not fun.
It riddles you with anxiety and you become so conscious of your looks and the overall health of your skin. Not to mention the anxiety you experience when you need to step outside and get things done. So what do you do? It’s good ol’ foundation to the rescue.
Now if you’re going to cover up the acne, you would want something that won’t aggravate the unsightly skin situation. To help you find the right foundation, today we have a list of the best foundations for acne-prone skin.
- E.L.F Acne Fighting Foundation (Ulta) – If you have and acne-prone skin, this witch hazel- and tea tree oil-infused foundation might just be your ride or die product. The witch hazel acts as a natural astringent to make the skin more matte and remove excess oil, while tea tree oil loosens up the clog in your pores and disinfects clogged the pores gentler than benzoyl peroxide.
- Almay Clear Complexion Blemish Eraser Makeup (Ulta) – This product claims to be a multitasker. Its formula promises to “cover, clear, calm, and control.” It has salicylic acid, aloe, and chamomile ingredients, which might be the basis of those claims.
Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup (Ulta) – This is a cult-favorite foundation by Clinique which is packed with zit-killing salicylic acid and caffeine to temporarily take down puffiness. It also has glycerin which gives it hydrating properties. This is not for dry skin as some people say this make their skin drier.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout (Ulta) – This one isn’t really foundation. It’s actually concealer but we still recommend it because it does the same job of concealing acne and prevents causing more. Mix a few drops in with our tinted moisturizer to create a super lightweight foundation feel. It’s supposed to keep your skin clear thanks to a mix of tea tree oil and sulfur which are known to be antibacterial, kaolin clay which is supposed to mattify your skin, and zinc oxide which is an anti-iflammatory agent and astringent.
- Neutrogena Skinclearing Oil-Free Makeup (Amazon) – This is the same formula you’ve known since high school and it isn’t exactly world changing and revolutionary, but there’s a reason why it’s still around and stayed popular years and year: It’s really, truly that good and it works. It has a small dose of salicylic acid and some soothing aloe extract which won’t dry out sensitive, acne-prone skin.
