speltwrongly said: Hi i just started following your blog which is really superb & was wondering if u had any advice for people with acne. I use MAC but i still find that my skin looks cakey where my acne is most prominent (my cheeks). I have combination skin, plz help
Well first I wouldn’t really recommend MAC foundations and powders if you have acne because MAC is known for not being the best for acne prone skin. Personally, MAC foundations and powders break me out however the blushes, bronzers, etc work perfectly fine so you might want to switch foundations for a while and see if your skin is any different :)
As for helping with acne, I have a whole post on that here.
As for covering acne and not looking cakey, check out my post on that here.
Some other tips I don’t mention in those posts are
- Wash your face twice, once to remove makeup and once to cleanse the skin. Most people do a quick wash and for people like us, who wear more heavy foundation really need to deep clean the skin or else makeup will clog the pores even when you think your face is clean. You can use a makeup remover wipe first to take off the majority of your makeup and then cleanse, or double cleanse!
- Wash your makeup brushes, pillows, hair, etc frequently. Things that touch your face can spread bacteria so wash your pillows and makeup brushes once a week and keep your hair clean so it doesn’t spread bacteria to your face.
