Wearing makeup when you're dealing with a breakout is a catch-22. You want to cover up your blemishes, but using the wrong foundation can clog up your pores even more so that your pimples hang round longer, or worse: new ones pop up.
The main offenders? Foundations that promise a dewy finish or have added shimmer to make you glow. Instead, look for formulas that are oil-free and have a matte finish. Bonus: Some brands feel the struggle, too and have added the same acne-fighting ingredients that are found in your skincare products to their foundations.
