• Blush Line Acne

    blush line acneBlush line acne is a type of cosmetic acne that forms in the blush area of the cheeks and consists of multiple closed comedones (whiteheads). It is mainly caused by comedogenic pressing agents or dyes in the blush products. 

    This type of acne is quite common even among the ones that don’t have an acne problem all over their face. It is the direct result of using certain cosmetics on your cheeks, the most damaging being blush and bronzing or glitter powder. You can recognize blush line acne easily because it appears isolated only on the areas where these makeup products have been applied

    The main trouble ingredients are the red dyes in the blush products. Almost every type of red dye is comedogenic. Derived from coal tar, these red dyes are used not only in blushes but also in lipstick, foundation, powder and skincare products. To spot these ingredients on the labels, look for D& C dyes -usually followed by numbers (e.g. D& C #40). D&C stands for “Drug & Cosmetic”.

    This type of acne resembles another type of cosmetic acne which is known as pomade acne, the bumpiness in the skin of the forehead and around the hairline caused by using oily and irritating hair products. Styling gels, conditioners, oils, hair spray can cause acne along the hairline.

    The only way to combat cosmetic acne is by giving up the comedogenic products that caused it.
    Make sure you clean the skin all the time and avoid contact of other products with the skin.

    • Thank u so much 4 posting this blog…I have never had acnes, not even in my puberty and suddenly I got them on the exact places u mentioned..on my blush areas…
      how can I make them stop growing up from my face?

    • Ana, first try to determine what caused it (the exact product you’re frequently using on the cheeks) and stop using it. To make the bumps go away, try exfoliating with a product that is suitable for your skin type (exfoliating cleanser, or an exfoliating mask) Exfoliation helps unclog the pores and helps affected skin regenerate faster. Clay-based masks are also great for drying out the bumps and cleaning the pores.
