Ruling on putting powder or cream on one’s face


What is the ruling on the powder or cream which women put on their faces for beautification purposes?.


Praise be to Allah.

The issue of face powder or face creams is subject to further discussion. 

If it is used for beautification purposes and does not cause any harm to the face, there is nothing wrong with it, but if it causes some harm such as black spots etc, then it is not allowed because of the harm it causes. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength.
