My latest attempt at covering my spots was using Jardé mineral makeup. The coverage is brilliant, it's made me feel so much more confident, and makes my skin look lovely. When I take it off at night, my skin looks okay, but the next morning, I look in the mirror and my skin is covered in tiny flat red spots (along with my usual spots). I can't decide if this is my skin getting used to me putting makeup on it, or if my skin can't handle mineral make up either?
I just don't know what to do. I've tried abstaining from make up completely, but my skin never clears up enough for me to feel confident. So now i'm allowing myself to wear foundation again, but it is making my skin terrible. What can I do? Should I keep using the foundation and hope that my skin will get used to it eventually?

If you don't have jojoba oil or something, here's a DIY on how to make your own make-up remover!! It's really natural and won't clog pores, and all you'll need is Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Aloe Vera Water or simply just water(:

Try that video above, removing make up with oil-based cleansers is the best way to go as it removes everything. Then wash your face as normal, tone and moisturise before bed. See if that helps.

I know this post is kind of old... but just wanted to put my two cents in.
I think you should wear tinted moisturizer... Physician's Formula sells a good one because it is oil free, hypoallegenic, fragrance free and non comedogenic. I really like their line because most of their products are. If the tinted moisturizer isn't enough coverage than use either their liquid foundation or loose powder foundation.
Hope this helps!

I also agree with everyone that you should start with either a tinted moisturizer, a concealer only, or a bb cream. IMO, the only thing that positively affects my skin is my bb cream. You have to find the right one for you as not all bb creams are created the same. I use a korean brand (Dr. G not Jart++) that is extremely gentle on my skin and offers almost as much coverage as Make Up For Ever's full coverage line.
I also suggest you buy an oil cleaner (or jojoba oil as someone else has recommended). It seems weird to be rubbing oil all over your face, esp if you have an oily complexion, but i swear it removes all the dirt/makeup even the most waterproof and leaves your skin feeling clean and soft.
