The 8 Best Foundations for Acne-Prone Skin, According to Dermatologists

I spend a lot of time figuring out which makeup products will work best for my combination skin. Not only do I tend to have a super-shiny T-zone by lunchtime, but I also get unexpected breakouts on a semi-regular basis. Fortunately, it’s OK to cover zits with makeup as long as you’re treating the skin first and using the right formulas (non-comedogenic and oil-free among them). To help others who want coverage for acne-prone skin, we asked a few dermatologists for the foundations that they recommend to their patients. If you’re looking to even out your skin without increasing the threat of a new breakout, read on for some of the most effective foundations on the market.
