My acne is not very noticeable indoors, but in sunlight everything is visible.My entire face is basically covered. I've had this type of acne for years now. At least 3 years. Some of my small pimples get big enough to squeeze and white stuff comes out, so I'm assuming that my acne is tons of whiteheads.
I went to the dermatologist and he gave me pills( deoxyclicline) and Bezaclin and that worked great for my large pimples. I asked him about this acne I have now and he said, "Ohh, those are just closed comedones..." and did nothing about it.
Honestly, I believe it comes from my makeup, and I have dark skin that takes forever for acne marks to heal. My skin tone has dark marks basically all over my cheeks---very very noticeable. I'd rather wear foundation/concealer to even out my skin tone.
Please recommend me makeup that will not give me these. Also something that can take these away.
I also cleanse with the body shop's tea tree system (cleanse, tone, moisturize)
I use BP that helps a lot reduce the size of my countless pimples, but really doesn't take them away. (maybe because I wear makeup everyday)
For the past two days, I've been massaging my face with olive oil, and it's made my skin softer, that's it.
I noticed that the ingredient in most blushes/powder Bismuth Oxycholoride gives me these same pimples.
So what is it in foundations that is causing my pimples?
I used revlon colorstay foundation, revlon naked foundation(was the worst)
Makeup forever HD foundation, loreal true match concealor and all of which gave me these pimples.
Recently bought Clinique even better foundation and concealor, but are too dewy for my oily mess.
Thank you for your input
