I've been off the regimen for a bit now and the residual flakes are all gone (if you want to see why I went off the regimen, read my log). I wore foundation for the first time in a LONG time yesterday and I'm wondering if I shocked my skin with the combo of using foundation & coming off of the BP or the foundation broke me out. Or maybe I just won't know?


My acne in a nutshell -- Mild-to-moderate, adult on-set, began late 2009. Regarding my beliefs and previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I have been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up way to high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here will reflect that. Considering I have never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties (whereas I've had flawless my entire life skin up until then), I claim to know nothing. I am still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.

There is no way to know. 

 

If you're really determined to know which is the cause, you have to stick with the makeup you wore on the regimen, and wait a good period of time before switching makeup (around a month). If you wore different makeup and a breakout occurred thereafter, then you have something to work off of. 

 

Or you could do what I do. Trust my gut.
