lol - your acne is very similar to mine. pretty minimal, but bad ass little fuckers when they do come around. you do a great job covering it too, what kind of make-up do you use?i'm about a week behind you, so i'm interested to see how we progress.

Thanks. I must start by saying that I work in the beauty industry-- I have been doing makeup for 5 years so I am damn good at covering my acne and my hyper-pigmentation. Thank god! I use a lot of different stuff but here is what I am currently doing to cover up the mess:make sure it is well exfoliated, nothing looks worse than makeup on peeling skin (--if it is super dry and peeling, I skip makeup on that part of my face all together.)moisturize! I am using a mix of clinique dramatically different and aveda tourmaline creme.I start with concealer: I am using perscriptives camouflage creme this concealer is glorious because of their color matching technologies! sadly they are discontinuing this line in department stores but will still sell it online so go get color matched if there is still a counter near you or visit the website and try to color match yourself and order it offline-- a bit spendy but totally worth it!!!Here is another tip too: dot the concealer on and let it dry a bit before blending it in you will get better coverage.I then set the concealer with a mineral foundation (which is a full coverage powder)I am currently using Aveda dual coverage powder foundation but am also a HUGE fan of bare minerals. tip for that big date or awesome concert:you can use MAC studio finish concealer (the one in the pots) they have REALLY good coverage and staying power --- the bad part is they are not non-comedogenic which means it will clog your pores so it is not a good option for everyday...
