If you’re suffering from acne, it becomes very difficult to take care of your skin. Choosing a foundation for your acne prone skin is another concern to consider seriously. So, here we would mention about is powder or liquid foundation better for acne prone skin?

What if you use powder foundation on acne prone skin?

When you apply powder foundation, it gives you medium coverage. Sometimes, the powder cannot cover the acne properly and also it is light on the face. Using powder foundation can help to soak the excess oil on the skin which is a common condition for those who have acne prone skin.


If you are using powder foundation you should understand the fact that it will not cover the acne or acne scars on the face easily. It does not give a flawless complexion and also does not tone your skin perfectly. On the brighter side, using powder foundation on the skin can help to make your complexion look natural. It is not heavy on the face as well. So, if you’re looking for a foundation that will cover the acne scars and blemishes, you should not opt for powder foundations.

What if you use liquid foundation on acne prone skin?

When compared to powder, liquid foundation can prove to be beneficial for acne-prone skin. Liquid foundation spreads easily on the face and also it helps to cover the acne spots and blemishes on the face. Using liquid foundation can help to give a high coverage on the face and promotes glowing skin. Choosing the right type of foundation prevents the makeup from settling in between the lines and creases on the face. There are several types of formulas which come in liquid foundation form but it leaves your skin a bit moisturized/oily. If you are looking for a natural dewy look on the face, you should certainly be using liquid foundation. Acne prone skin soaks foundation very easily thus promoting brighter looking skin. So, in all liquid foundation is better if you are going to some parties, events or functions.

One more important factor you should consider is that you should switch to a different type of foundation according to the climate. Using a powder foundation during winter days can worsen the condition. If your skin is dry, give it some hydration by using a hydrating foundation. You can use a powder foundation during summer days as your skin tends to release a high amount of oil during the time.
