Diana Malcangi, Studio Coré’s cosmetólogist, gives us some tips about makeup ideal for greasy skin with impurities and prone to have pimples and blackheads:
“An important aspect, especially associated with the psychological effects of the acne, is the makeup use that eventually allows to “hide” those undesired marks.
The makeups used (correction makeup) must be chosen carefully, due to that fact that the substances they sometimes contain may even worsen skin complexion.”
Avoid makeup base completely, both as liquid or compact cream form. These will clog up skin pores and and prevent the adequate lipid exchange with the exterior complicating the acne manifestation even more.
If you want to use a makeup base, a loose powder foundation is the best recommendation, silicone and oil free, that is applied with a sponge or with the fingers directly over the pimple.
Prolonged use of makeup is not advised.
Makeup should be worn at most two or three hours a day.
In case you were under a specific dermatologic treatment, avoid makeup completely, letting the skin breathe.
