Make Up Improves Quality of Life in Acne Patients

Title: Make-up improves the quality of life of acne patients without aggravating acne eruptions during treatments.
Authors: Hayashi N, et al.
Publication: Eur J Dermatol. 2005 Jul-Aug;15(4):284-7.

In this study, the authors use make-up artist to train 18 female acne patients to apply make-up for 2 to 4 weeks while receiving acne treatment. They find that the patients have decreased acne eruptions (which contradicts the notion held by many dermatologists that make-up aggravates acne). They also found that the patients have improved quality of life and decreased anxiety levels, and suggest that dermatologists should encourage female patients to use cosmetics while undergoing treatment.
