If you've got acne, foundation seems a Catch-22. Cover it up, and risk breakouts, or else go bare-faced and feel less confident. The key to a grease-free face throughout the day is starting with the best foundation for your skin type. It should have enough pigmentation to cover imperfections but also balance oil and leave your face looking matte all day long.
The magic ingredient for anyone with clog-happy or acne-prone skin? Salicylic Acid. This gentle, effective natural acid removes excess oil and exfoliates dead skin cells, working like a pipe cleaner to keep pores clear and healthy. It dries out acne and can help dissolve clogged pores and reduce blackheads. Over time, it reduces acne and helps keep skin clear by preventing new blemishes and pimples.
While your instinct might be to reach for the high-coverage foundation if you have acne, makeup artists recommend dialing it down a notch. Our Dream Pure BB Cream is a skincare-makeup hybrid that gives a clean wash of even coverage to skin while imparting numerous benefits. And it's got a healthy dose of salicylic acid in it to clear acne. Conceal imperfections. Minimize the look of pores. Reduce the appearance of redness. Hydrate and smooth. Mattify and clarify. It's ideal for summertime, when skin tends to get oilier and more acne-prone!
