7 tinted moisturizers that really work for acne-prone skin
Acne can be a really unpleasant condition - we’ve all been there to some extent - and it can be challenging to know what products to use to improve the appearance of your skin. There’s a myth that tinted moisturizers are only suitable for drier skin types, but if you chose a product that is formulated for your skin type, they can be a lifesaver for oily and acne prone complexions.
Here, we’ve found seven of the best tinted moisturizers currently on the market that are designed to work with, not against, acne-prone and oily skin - products that won’t block your pores and make your breakouts even worse than before, products that provide coverage without being thick and heavy, and in some cases products that are actively formulated to treat and clear your breakouts. Curious? Read on!
1. Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer
This long-lasting BB cream from cult brand Tarte Cosmetics is oil-free and non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t block pores, so is suitable for oily and acne-prone skin. It contains Amazonian clay for longer wear, chamomile for its anti-inflammatory properties, and multiple nourishing antioxidant vitamins (A, C and E) to protect your skin from environmental stress factors. It provides lightweight, buildable coverage which blends easily and looks very natural, evening out imperfections and reducing redness.
2. BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream
This gel-based tinted moisturizer from Bare Minerals is incredibly lightweight and is both oil-free and water-infused, making it perfect for oily and acne prone skin types. It has a semi-matte finish, is blendable, smoothing onto the skin easily, as well as being long-lasting, and looks natural and healthy. It’s available in 20 shades to suit a wide range of skin tones, and provides mineral-based board spectrum SPF 30 protection against damage from the sun’s rays. It’s also vegan, dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic.
3. CLINIQUEAnti-Blemish BB Cream SPF 40
Part of the Acne Solutions range, this BB Cream from Clinique has been specifically developed for acne-prone and oily skins. Lightweight and mattifying, it lasts for 12 hours and conceals blemishes and imperfections, while being oil-free and non-comedogenic so it doesn’t block pores. It also provides broad spectrum SPF 40 protection against the sun.
4. Neutrogena SkinClearing Complexion Perfector
NeutrogenaSkinClearing Complexion Perfector
This lightweight tinted moisturizer from Neutrogena isn’t just makeup, but it’s also an acne treatment. It’s not simply designed to be suitable for acne-prone skin, it actually contains active ingredients to help clear acne breakouts - called Microclear technology. It is formulated with 0.5% salicylic acid, which is found in many effective active treatments. It is sheer in texture and blends well to provide coverage to help blur the visible appearance of blemishes.
5. Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Skin Clearing Perfector
This BB cream from drugstore brand Maybelline really ups the stakes when it comes to acne-fighting ingredients - it contains a whopping 2% salicylic acid. It is also oil-free and non-comedogenic so that it doesn’t cause further breakouts. It mattifies and smooths the skin, helps minimize redness and conceals blemishes, AND it adjusts to your individual skin tone.
6. Almay Clear Complexion Make Myself Clear Makeup
This product from Almay describes itself as a maximum strength salicylic acid acne treatment - and it also describes itself as makeup - a ‘clean foundation’! Dermatologist tested, fragrance-free and hypoallergenic, it helps conceal current acne breakouts and blemishes while treating them, and also preventing new flare-ups. It has a matte finish and is oil-free and non-comedogenic.
7. CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream
COVERGIRLClean Matte BB Cream
If cash is tight, this tinted moisturizer from drugstore brand Covergirl is a great option, thanks to its super low price tag. Its lightweight oil-free formula is suitable for oily and acne-prone skins as it won’t block pores. It provides light coverage for blemished skins, and while it doesn’t contain the active treatment ingredients of some of the more expensive products, it certainly won’t cause future breakouts.
🎯Ingrown hairs—these two little words conjure🎯
In our quest for smooth, stubble-free skin, ingrown hairs are an annoyance at best and cause for concern at worst (trust me- you don't want to see what they look like when they get infected)🤐 The cause of ingrown hairs isn't complicated. Simply put, when your hair starts to grow, sometimes it curls inward and gets trapped back under the surface of your skin. This can happen because dead skin cells clog up your hair follicle (so always, always exfoliate), but ingrowns also exist just because of your hair's natural growth pattern—so, unfortunately, those with curly hair may suffer the most! ￼Aspirin-Honey Treatment This recipe is a double whammy. Not only does aspirin naturally contain salicylic acid, but honey also has antibacterial properties, which can help reduce the possibility of inflammation and infection. 🔎Ingredients: 3 uncoated aspirin tablets 1 tsp. honey 1/2 to 1 tsp. water or oil Directions: Add warm water or oil to a bowl Add honey Crush aspirin tablets Mix together Leave mask on for 10 minutes Wipe off entirely with warm water ￼Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub Coconut oil, for example, is hydrating, keeps skin moisturized, and reduces inflammation.4 It's basically our winter skin savior. Mix it with raw sugar and you've got a winner. You can use this scrub daily until you see an improvement, and then you can switch to two to three times a week. Just be careful that the scrub isn't too abrasive. 🔎Ingredients: 1 cup of raw sugar 1/2 cup of coconut oil 10 drops of tea tree oil, or your preferred essential oil Directions: Combine sugar and coconut oil in a bowl Add in essential oil Mix together Apply and then rinse using warm water Dry with a clean towel ￼Baking Soda and Oatmeal Treatment I am huge fan of baking soda and how amazing this ingredient is! And rediciliously cheap. Baking soda, which is a great exfoliator, helps reduce and prevent ingrown hairs. Oatmeal has a soothing effect, reducing redness and irritation caused by exfoliation. 🔎Ingredients: 1 tbsp. baking soda 1 cup of water 1 tbsp. ground oatmeal Directions: Mix baking soda and oatmeal together Add water to the bowl Stir until it has a paste-like texture Using a cotton pad, scoop up the mixture Apply to the affected area and let sit for 10 minutes Rinse with warm water ￼Oil-Based Serum if you're particularly sensitive, it's best to avoid overly harsh scrubs. Abrasive scrubs like sugar and salt scrubs do exfoliate the skin but often at the expense of causing excess skin irritation 🔎Ingredients: 1 tbsp. castor oil 1 tbsp. hemp oil (optional) 10 drops tea tree oil Directions: Find a reusable glass bottle Combine castor oil and hemp oil Add tea tree oil to mix Apply combination after shaving to prevent irritation alba BOTANICA - Acne Dote, Face & Body Scrub Oil-Free CeraVe - SA Moisturizing Cream For Rough & Bumpy Skin GLYTONE - KP Kit Amlactin - Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion

✨Cute Bun Hairstyle✨
Hi Guys!!! I recently saw this scrolling on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it! It’s SO easy and took about 5 minutes total!! It looks so fancy yet it’s so simple! I have medium to thin hair but this can work on pretty much all hair types! (: (tip: spray texture spray beforehand) this helps it stay in better!)☺️ HOW TO: -I like to pull my bangs out first (: - you’re going to section it as if you’re doing a half up half down hairstyle -then you’re going to start twisting that part of your hair -I twist it around like I’m doing a ballerina bun😅 -then I secure it with a hair tie ❤️ -you can leave like that! Or I like to pull it out a little so it’s more loose!✨😊

Let’s learn a no heat style! ￼Start by gathering your hair to one side ￼Begin a rope braid in the front by twisting two pieces. Add hair to each section and twist again. Continue this pattern until you reach your ear. ￼Split the remaining hair into two. While holding the section pop index finger and thumb through. Grab through the other section and repeat!
