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?

In a nutshell, I've had mild/moderate adult on-set acne which began towards the end of 2009 (22 years old). Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and/or had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may reflect that. Considering I've never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I can only offer my humble advice based on my own personal experiences.

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.
