Folks with finicky acne-prone skin need to be extra careful when it comes to the makeup products they use — and blush is of course no exception. Case in point: Certain cream and powder blush formulations may contain pore-clogging ingredients, which can in turn lead to breakouts. So what are the best types of blushes for acne-prone skin? Well, for starters, you definitely want to look for lightweight formulas that don’t contain comedogenic ingredients, such as coconut oil, mineral oil, and cocoa butter. Ideally, you want to look for blushes that have gentle, skin-loving ingredients, like our BYO Blush Oil, for instance.
It's worth noting that the cheeks are a super common place for pimples to appear on people — hence why those with acne-prone skin should be wary of what's in their blush formulas. Some people also have sensitivities to talc and mica, which are often found in powder blush formulas, so it's always a good idea to patch test first.
BYO Blush for acne-prone skin
We may be a bit biased, but even our customers with acne have told us how great BYO Blush has been for their skin (more on that, here). Despite being in an oil format, our green color-changing blush is featherlight and will never, ever clog your pores as it's free of comedogenic ingredients. In fact, because it's formulated to act like skincare, it can actually help to soothe breakouts. In addition to our proprietary Skin Chi Complex, which aids in promoting healthy blood circulation, BYO Blush also contains 20 ultra-nourishing plant-based oils that calm, repair, and protect the skin.
