In Topic: No Sugar Group!

I'm happy to report that I still have held a strong correlation with sugar consumption and breakouts. The less table sugar I eat (and carbohydrate load in general), the better my skin looks. 

 

I do not use any acne products. Just cleansing and moisturizing. It's worth it!

I really still have to put my vote for any Korean-brand BB creams. Koreans know their stuff. Trust!

My boyfriend used to say my acne was cute. :) That always cheered me up.

do CC creams count? I personally haven't tried many BB creams, but I like lumene's CC cream....light, easy to apply, SPF, relatively cheap, and decent ingredients.

 

Yes, CC creams do count. :) What have you used?


In Topic: Does Using Makeup While You Just Putted Topical Products Makes Your Acne Worse?

I love Faerie Organic minerals. Highly recommend. I currently am in love with Lancome products, but they're not cheap. Faerie is more affordable.

 

YES I do think applying both acne products and makeup can be a little tricky, and if done incorrectly can either break you out, or simply prevent the products from being effective. I would definitely suggest a) switching to a powder formula for a bit (month), then trying liquid and seeing if it still has any negative effects, and b) spacing out your application.

 

One big change I made to my routine was spacing out application of products. You should be waiting a while inbetween applying any toners, gels, moisturizers, and ESPECIALLY makeup (liquids, powders, etc). You really need to let the topical products settle in before using your makeup.

 

To save time, I usually get ready for school or work, and do everything besides makeup. Then, I drive to school, park, do my makeup and voila! Done. It usually gives enough time to let me face absorb the products I've applied.
