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 Story:
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.

Finished my Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg/day every month for 6 months

Current Routine:
Cleanser:  CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser (AM & PM - cleanse with the Clarisonic Cashmere Cleanse brush head every other night)
Moisturizers:  Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen for Face, SPF 50 (AM) // Avocado Oil (PM)
Eye Cream:  Honey Girl Organics Extra Sensitive Face and Eye Creme (AM & PM)

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.
