bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Anti-Acne Makeup

From your period and your boyfriend’s beard to stresses like your commute and finances, there are so many very grownup life things that can cause your skin to break out like a teenager’s. You may have thought that becoming an adult meant the end of pimples, but (as you probably know) you can still get a few zits or even full-blown breakouts.

The good news is that we’re here for you with acne-fighting skincare and makeup that’s made with natural ingredients. Our Blemish Remedy™ products are secret weapons (in sleek, adult packaging) for getting your skin back in check. This should be obvious, but we just want to say it: the entire Blemish Remedy™ line is dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores or cause breakouts. Because that’s the last thing your makeup should do. Now, let’s get down to clearing up those breakouts.

Keep it (Extra) Clean

bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Acne Treatment Face Cleanser

Obviously skin that is clean is less likely to break out, but how you clean it can make a difference. Blemish Remedy™ Acne Treatment Gelée Cleanser is an oil-free acne facial cleanser that not only helps to get rid of existing acne but also washes away pore-clogging impurities, which helps prevent future breakouts. We recommend washing your face with it both morning and night.

Add a Serum to Your Skincare Routine

One of the best ways to stay on top of the adult acne fight is to add a skin-loving serum to your daily beauty ritual. Our Blemish Remedy™ Acne Clearing Treatment Serum is specifically made to calm acne-prone skin and reduce redness. Apply it after you cleanse your face in the morning and at night to condition and soften your skin before applying your moisturizer. Trust us, it will make a difference after you’ve used it for a while.

Prep Your Skin Before Applying Makeup

Another behind-the-scenes secret weapon you should have in your anti-acne arsenal is our Blemish Remedy™ Mattifying Prep Gel. Powered by an oil-absorbing mineral and naturally-derived ingredients that help to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy, simply apply the weightless gel after your moisturizer and before your makeup. Made specifically for people concerned with acne, it is an effective makeup primer that dries into an invisible matte finish, creating a smooth base for better makeup application and longer wear.

Use a Foundation that Won’t Clog Your Pores

We LOVE foundation—complexion is kind of our thing. That’s why we make them for different skincare concerns and finish preferences.  Specially formulated for oily, acne-prone skin, Blemish Remedy™ Foundation is made with naturally-soothing Aspen bark and tea tree oil, which helps to minimize the appearance of imperfections, skin redness and shine. The best part? This good-for-skin foundation actually promotes clearer, healthier-looking skin over time.

Spot Treat Problem Areas with an Acne-Fighting Concealer

When acne-prone skin is your daily reality, it’s crucial to have an on-the-go solution for those moments you need it most. Our spot-on Blemish Remedy™ Concealer is a convenient twist-up pencil that’s available in four shades. Not only does it reduce the look of redness and cover problem areas, it’s powered with Kaolin clay minerals that help to reduce shine and absorb excess oil in seconds so you can apply it over your blemishes and get on with your day.
