Acne Safe Haircare Products & Makeup

We love makeup. It can be a fun hobby, a way to enhance your favorite features, and make occasions special. However, makeup can also be a major contributor to your never-ending skin congestion, texture, and breakouts. Not only makeup, but our haircare products are just as much to blame for our acne too!

We often see makeup used to cover and disguise acne. We don’t want that – we want you to love your skin without makeup, but to wear makeup every day if that makes you feel good. You don’t have to sacrifice makeup for clear skin, but you do have to follow some guidelines and toss out makeup that has ingredients that just won’t work for your skin type.

Do you want clear skin?

So if you have ever once wondered, if your makeup is to blame for blackheads, bumps, pimples, or cysts – then do your skin a favor & purchase our 2023 hair & makeup review to put your mind at ease. We’ve spent a lot of time putting makeup and haircare options together for you so you have no excuse not to make the switch!

Don’t Be Afraid to Break Up with Your Makeup

We know it isn’t easy to choose a foundation that checks all the boxes: the right texture, color, consistency, finish (matte or glowy?), and ingredients that won’t clog your pores or irritate your skin. Each and every one of the foundations we recommend on our list has a unique look and feel, so you’ll probably want to try out a few to find what works best for you.

But take it from the experts: a product’s ingredients should be your #1 concern before putting anything on your skin. No matter what.

Even your most tried-and-true cosmetics could be the reason you’re breaking out!

Not all products in any one specific brand are safe…

For instance, Bare Minerals has always been thought of as being acne safe. Except, they have some products that contain pore clogging ingredients–not safe at all. MAC makeup is infamously known for its pore clogging makeup, but they actually have several products that won’t break you out.

There are thousands of cosmetic ingredients so it would be next to impossible to know whether each one of them is pore-clogging or not.

Haircare That Clogs Pores

Many hair products are oil based, which may trigger acne in those who are already prone, but ingredients such as petroleum, silicone, cocoa butter, sodium lauryl sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, mineral oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and lanolin can also trigger acne, especially if left on the skin.

Sound like a lot of work trying to figure all this out?

That’s where we come in…!

If you have minor acne, the simple solution to clearing might be just by getting your hair and makeup products in check.  That simple change could be the difference between you being clear or breaking out.

A Final Note

If you’ve gotten this far and you feel ready to break up with makeup and haircare products altogether, we salute you!

Even if you’ve got pimples, there’s absolutely no shame in owning it while your acne heals. It can be beneficial to give your skin a break from makeup (even non-comedogenic makeup). You could always use a little concealer here and there, just to cover up any spots. Or use a tinted sunscreen for a one-and-done daytime makeup routine that will even out your skin’s appearance while protecting it from the sun at the same time.

For a truly minimalist approach, just slap on a non-comedogenic sunscreen in the AM, and you’re golden. Your skin will thank you!

Avoiding pore clogging ingredients is a good place to start in your clear skin journey, but before you toss out your whole makeup bag or trash your shampoos and conditioners – schedule an appointment with us so we can help you pin point exactly what’s causing your breakouts.

Cheers to clear!
