Us­ing the wrong type of make-up can also cause acne or pim­ples. How­ever, if one is dili­gent about re­mov­ing make-up at the end of the day and im­me­di­ately after ex­er­cise, acne can be pre­vented to a cer­tain ex­tent. Cer­tain oils and chem­i­cals in cos­met­ics can cause or worsen acne. This type of acne, ap­pro­pri­ately called acne cos­met­ica, is mild, common and char­ac­terised by blocked pores and red­dened bumps on the chin, cheeks and fore­head. Acne cos­met­ica oc­curs when oils from your make-up col­lect in and clog your pores; thick liq­uid/ cream prod­ucts are more of­ten than not the cul­prits here than lighter prod­ucts like pow­ders. To help avoid th­ese re­ac­tions, look for make-up prod­ucts that are fra­grance- and oil-free as th­ese in­gre­di­ents are typ­i­cally the most ir­ri­tat­ing to the skin. Also, opt for prod­ucts that are la­beled hy­poal­ler­genic (they’re less likely to cause al­ler­gic re­ac­tions), non-come­do­genic (they won’t block pores) and non-ac­ne­genic (they won’t cause acne). In case you ex­pe­ri­ence a pos­si­ble re­ac­tion to make-up, do not de­lay in con­sult­ing your der­ma­tol­o­gist im­me­di­ately.
