Makeup For Acne Scars
Finding good makeup for acne scars is almost impossible. It’s hard enough to find a good foundation or conceal that covers well and doesn’t look too heavy,thick, or unnatural.
But finding ones that cover scars - especially deep, jagged scar is very difficult. This is mostly because scarred skin can be pitted and have uneven texture and tone.
Also, what makes this an even harder task is to pick a concealer or foundation that won't aggravate, clog pores, or cause even more breakouts! Not an easy task at all!!
So would a lose powder foundation work or mineral powder makeup work? Not really. While they may be good for oily skin, they usually don’t provide enough coverage for acne scars and discolored spots and blotches. And, a liquid cover makeup for is usually too thin and does not provide enough coverage.
When selecting the right makeup consider that texture of the product. You will need something that will have a some what thicker, creamier texture. Also, make sure it's free of fragrances, petrochemicals and unnecessary additives.
To get the best results from your foundation, consider a good renew intensive skin therapy facial scrub. This facial will help exfoliate and reduce or smooth out the scars. For some people several (9-10) treatments with this facial has helped so much that they didn't need special makeup for acne scars! Pretty good news, huh?
Also, some people get better results when they use a primer first. This helps create a smooth canvas for the foundation to smooth onto.
Makeup for Acne Prone Skin
Ok, so what’s the best makeup for acne? Consider trying an oil-free mineral pressed base foundation. It’s sort of a combination between powder, cream, and liquid texture……..
This type of makeup goes on like a concealer to hide flaws, blemishes, and scars – but wears and feels like a lightweight liquid or powdered foundation.
This type of makeup is also good to hide fine lines and wrinkles too…..so it offers the best of both worlds, smoother skin, smaller pores, less visible lines and wrinkles and of course covers scars too.
Best Face Makeup for Acne and Scars
Once again hands down……gloMinerals Pressed Base wins out as the best face makeup for acne. Plus, it contains green tea to protect your skin from free radical damage and zinc oxide to protect against sun damage.
And, it’s especially good for oily, acne-prone skin to prevent breakouts while helping to even out tone and texture. This type of foundation will allow the skin to breath, while providing enough coverage to cover up scars and discoloration.
You might also wish to apply this makeup with a long hair nylon makeup brush. Start out with a foundation brush for all over coverage, then go over the specific problem areas with a blend brush or ultra brush. Using just the tip or angle of the brush......use a tapping motion until the foundation is blended in well.
Other Tips for Makeup for Acne Scars
Here are some extra tips to help you get the best coverage possible.
Small Blemish Stick - Carry a blemish stick or concealer with you during the day for emergencies. Yan help spot treat areas that may start to show up during perspiration or damp, wet, humid weather.
For a Deep or Pitted Scar - Make sure to apply a primer to fill in the scar first. Once that looks smooth, then you can apply a few light layers of your concealer or foundation.
Raised Scar - Since the middle of a keloid scar is usually lighter or even pinkish in tone, use a color that matches or is slightly darker than your tone and apply to the center first and blend outward.
Unfortunately, as much as scars can cause emotional feelings or embarrassment for some people - complete 100% coverage is not really possible. The best you can do is try to reduce the visibility and appearance of it.
Also, don't forget to try the renew intensive skin facial to further help even out tone and reduce the appearance.
