Minimal makeup may not seem like a Kardashian mantra, but for Kourtney, not going full-throttle on the foundation is one of the only things that helps keep her breakouts under control. The eldest Kardashian sister took to her website to tell fans how she has realized that, for acne sufferers, the foundation you rely on to help cover your blemishes may be clogging your pores and encouraging more breakouts. But she has found one in particular that not only doesn’t exacerbate her acne, it also helps clear it up.
Oxygenating Acne Control Foundation
“I have really sensitive skin and am prone to breaking out, so I try to keep makeup minimal on my face,” Kardashian wrote, going on to reveal what she says is the only foundation she’ll wear from now on. “I recently discovered the best, breathable foundation from Oxygenetix.” She’s referring to the brand’s Oxygenating Acne Control Foundation, which promises the elusive combination of both breathability and full coverage. It contains two-percent salicylic acid for blemish treatment, and it’s made with an aloe-gel base instead of added water, which the brand says can attract acne-inducing bacteria.
The transfer- and water-resistant formula comes in 14 shades, and Kardashian always has several on hand. “I have it in a few shades, so it matches my skin if I’m tan,” she writes, saying she’s currently using the Almond shade. She loves what it’s done for her skin so much that even if she’s doing a shoot, she brings it for the makeup artist. “I make sure anyone doing my makeup uses this foundation.”
