I use cosmetics, usually blush, powder, and cover-up, and also eye shadow, mascara, lip gloss. I usually wear the cosmetics to cover my acne. I have break-out on my nose, usually red inflamed zits. Around my nose I have super dry, flaky skin. I also sometimes get a few zits on my cheek bones. I always touch my face, as it is a habit. I use acne medication, but it takes a while to work. Are my cosmetics part of the cause? How can I help this from happening? Is there any home remedy I can use to prevent, control, and get rid of my acne? P.S. Also keep in mind that I am an active teen. I run and workout daily.
