Should People With Acne Use Makeup?

I get a lot of questions regarding makeup. In this post I’ll do my best to address them. We’ll cover the following: 
- Pros of makeup, or why you should consider using makeup.
- Does makeup cause acne?
- Do you need to worry about comedogenic ingredients in cosmetics?
- The ‘dark side of beauty’ arguments, i.e. can cosmetic ingredients disrupt hormones and cause cancer? And should you be worried about them. #acne
