How to Apply Makeup on Inflamed Skin
As a general rule, irritated or inflamed skin should be left makeup-free. However, if wearing makeup is non-negotiable for you, prepping your skin beforehand is extremely important. Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how to prepare your skin for makeup when dealing with inflammation. (1) Soothe and calm your skin with a mask that contains antioxidants and hydrating ingredients. (2) Calm sensitivity and correct spots with an anti-inflammatory moisturizer. (3) Protect your skin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Finally, when applying makeup, use light pressure to avoid further irritating your skin. You can do this by tapping on makeup instead of rubbing it in to build pigment. You should also remember to use clean sponges and brushes to prevent harmful bacteria.
