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 makeup that’s made with natural ingredients. Our BLEMISH RESCUE 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 line is dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic, meaning these products 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.

Prep Your Skin Before Applying Makeup

Primer is a must-have before applying foundation — especially on uneven skin — and this one does double duty as step 1 of your anti-acne makeup routine. BLEMISH RESCUE Anti-Redness Mattifying Primer is a soothing primer that’s clinically shown to maintain skin’s essential moisture over time, while green mineral pigments help to neutralize the look of redness. Chamomile and Arnica calm and nourish to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy. Apply this 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 RESCUE Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation is made with soothing oat protein and a Moisture Mineral Complex to keep skin hydrated, while a blemish-busting mineral blend of Zinc, Sulfur and Kaolin clay work together to mattify skin and purify pores, and Phytosphingosine optimizes skin’s defenses against bacteria. The best part? This breakthrough foundation is the first powder to contain Salicylic Acid, which quickly resolves breakouts.
