Use of Cosmetics

Teenagers and adults suffer from acne caused by use of cosmetics and makeup. It's often seen that some women use excessive makeup to cover up their acne. However, it tends to produce devastating effects for skin in reality.

Cosmetics contain numerous chemicals, which creates oil base under the skin. When they are used regularly, they clog up skin pores which results in substantial oil production. This results in blockage of oxygen for skin cells and produces bacteria at a speedy pace. In severe cases, cosmetics act as catalyst to intensify skin problems.

If you want to use makeups, you should opt for powder based makeups instead of liquid ones. This will help to absorb excessive oil found under the skin surface.

The applicators used for makeup must be kept clean in order to restrict growth of bacteria. After using applicators, you should wash them with antibacterial soap. It's best to use disposable applicators in order to switch to new ones whenever possible.
