In shower, I wash with CeraVe Face Wash
**On dry skin I apply Clindamycin Phosphate pledgets all over my face
Once the C. Phosphate dries, I apply Neutrogena Combination Skin Moisturizer all over
After moisturizer, I begin my makeup...pretty much dreadful since it takes so freakin long
First, I use Clinique Even Better foundation in Buff L'Oreal Infallible foundation in Natural Ivory all over my face with the Ecotools Bamboo Powder brush. (I like the Infallible WAY better than Even Better. I feel like Even Better is more for dry skin types, with my oily skin E.B. tended to slide right off. The infallible lasts way longer and gives far better coverage if I layer it twice). I know the brush is meant for powder, but I like using it for liquid foundation because it makes it look very smooth and even. Sometimes I use a buffing brush to buff out any cakey looking spots..
****Sidenote: I don't use primer anymore because I've had some bad breakout experiences with them. I don't trust any primer, even if it says non comedogenic
Next, I apply Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in shade 5 to any very noticeable pimples and under my eyes. I use the Ecotools concealer brush (I always use brushes and I wash them every day - much cleaner than using your hands) On more noticeable pimples, I apply 2 layers to give full coverage.
Next, I set with a powder. My powder if the one thing I'm always changing. Right now I'm using Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder. I use my buffing brush to buff it on. I like using a buffing brush for powder because it just gets rid of any cakey-ness and blends everything together. I'm really not too happy with this product though. I find that it oxidizes so badly, and also feels heavy on my skin and doesn't absorb oil well. I plan on changing powders once I have the time to go out and try some Now I'm using Maybelline Fit Me powder in Ivory. It's okay, not my HG by any means. I'm still searching for my HG products. Trying to save up for Make Up For Ever HD Powder...$30 is kind of ridiculous for a small tub of silica powder though. I ordered the E.L.F HD powder dupe, I'm pretty excited to try it out.
After doing my face makeup, I do my blush and eye makeup but that's not really relevant here. I usually have to touch up my makeup about 1-2 times a day. I blot with Clean & Clear oil-absorbing sheets in school and reapply makeup as needed.
I start by washing my face with the CeraVe face wash again.
**After washing, I apply the C.P. pleget all over my face
Next, I moisturize. Somtimes if my skin is extremely dry, I use Cetaphil Moisturizer but if it's not too dry i just use the Neutrogena moisturizer .After moisturizing I use the Tazorac. On the Tazorac website, they tell you to moisturize beforehand. I find that it really makes a difference. It makes it easier to spread the Taz and also helps with the dryness.
I always take the Monodox with meals, as it is an oral medication. If not taken with meals it can cause nausea. I take one with breakfast and one with dinner As of 11/15/12 I haven't been taking Monodox
