Week 16 and STILL breaking out!



Dosage: 30 mg Claravis

Acne: Complete pustular explosion on my chin, one big pimple on my right cheek

Side Effects: Nothing new

I'm not sure why I'm feeling the need to update today, except for the fact that I'm afraid my makeup theory may be true.

I went out Friday and Saturday night, and wore makeup both nights. Today, I have tons of new breakouts. Has bare minerals ever done this to anyone before? I'm completely discouraged. To be at this point in my Accutane cycle and still having a breakout like this.... I don't know what to think. I'm fine with wearing just concealer during the day (even if my skin is clear, I am completely covered in red spots from previous breakouts), but when I go out tonight I like to have a little more coverage. I guess I can give it up for a few weeks to see if it helps.

I guess it's possible that my IB is just a long, slow process and it has nothing to do with my makeup at all, but I'm ready for it to end regardless. The good news is that my forehead is still completely clear and my left cheek hasn't had much of a problem in over a week, so let's just hope that my chin and right cheek will follow suit soon.

Hanging in there!

Your break-outs after wearing make-up might be because of your brushes. Have you washed them? Ever? I wear Bare Minerals and I never break out from it.~ Lots of Luck!
