To help avoid these reactions, look for makeup products that are fragrance- and oil-free; these ingredients are typically the most irritating to the skin.
Also, look for makeup labeled hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, and nonacnegenic.

These products won’t cause allergic reactions, acne or clog your pores.
In saying that, should you find yourself developing any kind of reaction after beginning a new beauty routine, it’s probably a good idea to stop using that particular product ASAP!
