Old Tappan, New Jersey (PressExposure) October 25, 2011 -- Makeup for Acne is a new blog that entered the competitive world of beauty review websites just recently. With most makeup advertising promising the image of perfect skin, this small site has taken a different twist. Rather than just looking at what's hot and trendy, as the most popular blogs do, they focus on finding products that are safe for acne prone skin. For the many girls and women out there who break out from the slightest irritant in makeup, this is a welcome relief.
"It's always such a challenge to find a foundation or concealer, in particular, that won't cause acne flare ups", a representative of the Makeup for Acne stated. "Every brand says it's non-comedogenic, but that doesn't mean you won't break out. I don't believe that cosmetics companies realize how much of an issue this is."
"Without trying each product, it's impossible to know how your own skin will react."
It can be so tempting to listen to all the hype when marketers say their product is best. There is the excitement of seeing a new brand or formulation and the testimonials and flawless faces to go along with the ads. Then frustration and often tears set in when women find themselves trying to recover from a bad reaction to their makeup. One has to wonder who is doing the testing.
The mission of Makeup for Acne is to help acne sufferers find the products that really are safe for acne prone skin, and to feel beautiful in the skin that they have. They test the products on themselves or search out the hundreds of reviews of new and popular makeup to find out which items will give the best coverage, look natural, and cause no harm. Their philosophy is that each person's skin is different and you need to discover your own triggers, keeping those in mind when evaluating any new product before buying it. "You just can not rely on what the advertising or packaging says."
Those who suffer from acne may even be more prone to succumb to the lure of makeup advertisement. After all, those beautiful women with perfect skin make it all seem so easy. The message seems to be that you just need to use that one product to achieve the look in the photo. "Well, airbrushing and Photoshop were invented for a reason."
