A bronzer can help you achieve the coveted bronzed goddess look, especially in a time when the current makeup trends are all about the “glow”. It can take your normal makeup from looking flat to the next level in a matter of seconds. Who doesn’t want to look like a glowy, bronzed goddess? Here, we cover the best fungal acne safe bronzers currently in the market.
Bronzers are a godsend for those who like the sun-kissed look and like to add dimension to their face. It can up your makeup, especially for those of us who tend to have paler or duller skin tones in the dark winter months. For those who suffer from fungal acne, the bronzer we use must be fungal acne safe. There is nothing worse than using a bronzer that triggers your fungal acne, and you end up getting it all over your cheekbones and hairline. Not only that, but using a bronzer where you have acne might even accentuate them, so using a fungal acne safe bronzer is an absolute must!
How to use Bronzer
How and where you use your bronzer depends on your face shape, but generally, the recommendation is to focus on the cheekbones, temples, and forehead. Typically, you would choose all the places that get hit by the sun. Personally, I also like to run my brush along my jawline to add some extra definition. Also, remember that bronzers add depth to the skin, so if you already have a narrow forehead, I suggest only using bronzer on the temples and avoiding the forehead altogether!
Why you should use a Fungal Acne Safe Bronzer
As we have mentioned many, many times on this website, anything that goes on your skin needs to be carefully assessed and checked if they contain ingredients that trigger fungal acne. Especially when it comes to bronzers, since it goes on a large portion of your face, it essential that it is fungal acne safe if you suffer from fungal acne.
