The Best Non Comedogenic Moisturizers for Your Face (Acne-Prone Skin)


The Best Non Comedogenic Moisturizer for Your Face (Acne-Prone Skin) – If you have acne prone skin, you’re probably nervous about using moisturizers because you don’t want to put anything on your skin that can cause or worsen your breakouts.

And this much is true—moisturizers can be greasy and loaded with potentially irritating ingredients that can trigger acne.

If you have acne-prone skin, the key is to use the right kind of products.

They should to be hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. This means that the product is less likely to clog pores or irritate the skin (Remember, irritated skin almost always equal acne).

This applies not only to your moisturizers but all your basic skincare products.

For for those with oily skin in particular, your skincare products should be lightweight so they’re easily absorbed by the skin. Products with thin, gel-like, or water-based consistencies are less likely to clog pores or worsen breakouts.

Quick Links: For those having trouble managing excessive oily skin, I highly recommend the Oily Skin Solution Program by Patricia Everson.

The Best Primers for Large Pores (and for your skin type!)


The Best Primers for Large Pores — When people with large pores or acne scars do their makeup, they tend to apply layers of foundation to give the illusion of refined skin. (I know I did!)

Pushing makeup into your pores however, results in an unnatural texture and can eventually lead to breakouts.

Foundation just simply isn’t built to go deep into the skin.

What you can do instead is use the same techniques that professional makeup artists do to cover large pores–target and correct imperfections using a primer, apply a thin blanket of foundation, and mattify with a mineral powder.

This creates a flawless canvas without having the need to cake on foundation.

Using minimal foundation helps create a more natural and healthier looking finish.

You can do it on your legs, your arms, underarms, bikini areas, and other parts where you wouldn’t have paid to have done but seeing as you have the device; you can just do it yourself.
