Would you be willing to ditch your makeup altogether if it meant having 90% clear skin? Or would you rather wear makeup that gives you a glow and evens your skin, but leaves you only 80% clear? But you look almost 99% clear with it on?

After much struggle, I've decided 80% with makeup to look 99%.

I would rather have no makeup, since I really don't try to cover my acne cause I'm lazy lol. I like to play up my eyes the most. It'd also be nice not having to wash off foundation every night!! :P

I agree I'd rather wear make up and have 80% clear skin to look 99% than have 90% clear skin. But I also wish I didn't have to choose! Some people don't realise how lucky they are... Also, I'm not convinced that makeup actually makes my skin worse anyway? When I was younger I went through a phase (over a year) of not wearing any makeup at all because I was desperate to clear my skin up but I regret it now because I don't think it helped at all and it just meant I felt hideous and depressed. My skin got better when I started wearing makeup again but that was also when I started bp...

If you mean concealer........and powder and such....I would choose to have clear skin. But not the DULL, RED, DRY looking slash OILY skin that is currently on my face whenever I get clear on BP. So, I choose clear skin, though I doubt I'd be happy because it would not 'glow'

NO MAKE UP ALL DAY! LOL It's the best feeling to wake up to a fresh face that doesn't need anything on it. It makes life incredible simple. I love it.

I wear BB cream and it gives my skin an incredible tone and I just adore it. Of course I think I look okay without it but, once you get used to the look of a bit of makeup it looks strange without it. Right?

I'd rather not wear makeup (except for special occasions)...but with the way my skin is now, that's not gonna happen for quite a long time.

I would ditch the make up, which is what I am doing right now! I've covered my skin for far too long and the make up has only made it worse (ALWAYS). So I'm ditching it and I honestly don't want to wear foundation for as long as I live, and blush, and bronzer..

AM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

Paula's Choice SPF 30 sunscreen (physical sunscreen, do not use chemical sunscreen on the face, more likely to break out)

 

PM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

 

1x per week: chemical peel (40% lactic acid or 30% glycolic acid)

 

Be hopeful and grateful at all times! Sunscreen is my BFF.

I looooove make up. You should never break out from your make up.

Your skin care products should be your base, most of it being absorbed into the skin. Make up is designed to sit on top of the skin.

Seems like the overall consensus is everyone wants to ditch makeup! What if no one ever had to see you without makeup on? What if you could "hide" I guess, but no one would ever have to know what you really look like?

It sounds wrong but on some level but, why not?

It is so much simpler to go without makeup and cuts out a lot of time getting ready. :)

Make up never seemed to affect my skin.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

I would love to feel confident enough to not wear makeup, I do notice a difference in my skin if I don't wear makeup for a few days, but I cannot leave the house without concealer.

I love make up... But I also love being able to not wear it. When I was suffering really badly with acne I was completely afraid of wearing any make up at all, despite my derm telling me it wouldn't aggravate my skin (I still don't believe her...)

I've actually written a blog post about not wearing make up and having acne if anyone is interested... http://abi-girl.blog...ed-freedom.html

Does anyone have any solutions to having dry skin as a result of acne treatments and compatible make up for this?

Hmm, I would prefer 90% clear skin over 80%.

I am in the situation where my skin is like 70%, but looks 80%~90% with foundation on.
It's great for the days when I am using it, but it's very mind wrecking on the days that I don't.
And I only use my foundation like, twice a month on special occasions, haha sad.png

 

But meh, I am still really grateful there's foundation to help me look normal smile.png
