Now You Can Use Silicone Foundations and still avoid acne

Jessica Is Acne Prone:

I want to buy a foundation primer, and the ones that I find are silicone based. Is silicone bad for acne prone/oily skin?

The Right Brain Is Answer Prone:

According to one of our favorite dermatologists, Dr. Zoe Draelos, silicone foundations are preferred for oily skin. That’s because silicone is non-comedogenic which means it won’t clog your pores. So go for it!

Interesting Bonus Fact: Unlike animal, vegetable or mineral oils, silicones are not based on carbon.
