No Setting Spray Does Not Cause Acne

Many of our Acne Clinic patients wear makeup. There are a variety of reasons why a person may choose to wear makeup but at times it can be used to conceal acne symptoms. Some of our clients have asked us, does setting spray cause acne? Though makeup in general might contribute to acne symptoms setting spray does not on its own cause acne. Some types of makeup may contribute to clogging pores, but you do not need to stop wearing makeup if you have acne.

If you are concerned about your makeup routine affecting your acne symptoms it may be a good idea to speak to a member of our team. We can give you a better understand of the unique factors that affect acne development on your skin.

What Causes Acne?

Setting spray and makeup on its own do not cause acne. Acne develops when hair follicles on the skin become clogged with dead skin or oil. Acne is not a sign of a lack of personal hygiene or poor diet choices. There are a variety of factors that can affect acne development for each person.

Some personal factors that may contribute to acne development are hormonal changes, medicine, stress or in some cases diet. Each person’s skin is unique, and it is important to consider all factors when treating acne.
