If you have acne on your skin, then you tend to put on more makeup on your face to hide them. Leaving makeup on your face at night will make you break out more acne, as makeup clogs pores on your face. It is important to choose the right makeup remover for acne-prone skin.
Your skin can be acne-prone due to various reasons. Due to acne and blemishes, your skin becomes very delicate. You have to maintain the appropriate moisture level in your skin so that it does not trigger acne. You should not use products that dry your skin, as it will lead to more oil secretion. You should not moisturize your skin too much, as it can lead to inflammation of your skin. If you wear makeup daily, then it is essential to use a good makeup remover that cleans your skin, protects it and heals your skin blemishes at the same time.
Choosing makeup remover for acne-prone skin:
You should use a makeup remover that is non-comedogenic i.e. they do not clog pores. These makeup removers will not trigger acne and help you reduce acne.
Choose a makeup remover that is oil-free. As acne-prone skin is already oily you don’t need to add extra oil to your skin. Using oil-free makeup remover will help you balance the moisture in your skin and not trigger acne.
Use a makeup remover that has good cleansing property so that you don’t need to rub your skin, while removing makeup. Harsh scrubbing can particularly irritate your skin and strip your skin of its natural oils, which are important for healthy skin.
Makeup remover should not contain strong detergents or use a soap-free product to remove your makeup. Strong detergents make your skin dry and cause acne.
Use a fragrance-free makeup remover, which does not irritate your skin. Various makeup removers available are prepared using natural ingredients; you can choose one such product, which suits your skin.
Use a paraben-free makeup remover which does not irritate your skin
Use a liquid makeup remover and apply it over your face using a soft cotton pad to clean your face, eye and lip makeup. Make sure you use a clean soft cotton pad that is not harsh on your delicate skin. You can even use makeup remover pads, which are already moistened with makeup cleansers. Gently move the pad over your entire face to remove makeup. Rinse your face with water after you have cleaned your face with makeup remover. As your skin is acne-prone, it is necessary to get rid of any detergent used in the product even if it is very mild.
