Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t wear make-up if you have acne, blemish-prone or combination skin.
The right make-up, well applied, can help you to cover blemishes and give you the confidence you need to get on with your life. What’s more, some people find that, once they’ve applied their make-up, they fiddle with their face less as they don’t want to smudge their cover. This is potentially good news for those with acne as there’s nothing worse for your skin than picking your spots.
There are also products that can have a positive effect on your skin: Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Cover Stick helps to reduce pimples at the same time as concealing them, so you get both care and coverage in one.
