Avoid use of strong cosmetic in acne 2:

If you are having acne then you should avoid using cosmetics. If it is possible use, only water based cosmetics. Care should also be taken to check if they are noncomedogenic.

As it is got in the research that cosmetic manufacturers generally add artificial oil to the products assuming that sebum is always helpful for the skin. These oils actually block the pores and aggravate acne. So it is suggested to use water base cosmetic only.

Avoid make up products with a strong fragrance as they can trigger an allergic reaction. Instead, use products with a very lightly fragrance. Compact pressed powder should also be avoided. The puff tends to collect all the dirt, grime and bacteria of the skin and alleviate acne. Use loose face powder instead. The face powder will help to absorb the extra oil. Apply moisturizer evenly with a light hand. This prevents deposition of excess products at different spots.

Another option available is mineral make up. It contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. They have anti bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects that help prevent acne. Even these should be used with caution since at times they tend make the skin dry.
At the end of the day, completely remove all make up. You can do so very conveniently with witch hazel. It is easily available. It contains enough alcohol to cleanse the skin but does not dry it out completely.
