Women can experience their first breakout of acne throughout the 20’s, 30’s or even 40’s having never had it as a teenager.
For many women, acne breakouts or flare ups are often worse at certain times throughout the month or during pregnancy. This is due to the flux in hormone levels which increases the skin’s production of natural oils. Hormones can play a big role in breakouts, which can explain why female breakouts can be more erratic than the flare up pattern for men, whose hormones tend to fluctuate less throughout the month.
If you’re reading this, then it’s likely that you’re part of themore than 20% of adult women out there experiencing acne. According to the ADA, the majority of women with active flare ups struggle with facial acne.

To cover up or dare to bare?
We know that the urge to cover up breakouts with makeup is there. The wrong sort of camouflage make-up can lead to clogged pores and aggravate acne further, particularly across the chin and cheeks. Make-up induced acne is so widespread that it is known professionally as “acne cosmetic”. We know that going bare is often not an option for people who come to us with breakouts, so we always advise our clients to opt for mineral make-up which contains only natural minerals and leaves out the nasties such as oils, fragrance or preservatives. Mineral make-up is non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores and is therefore the most suitable option for acne prone skin.
Acne.org rate cosmetic ingredients on a scale of 0 – 5 depending on how much they block pores. If any of the ingredients in the table below are listed in the first 7 ingredients of your makeup, they suggest avoiding the product to reduce acne flare ups:
