Hmmm

I really need to make a decision unsure.png I know that I want to take accutane, and because I'm only going to be taking a 20mg dose, I hopefully won't have to worry as much about the serious side effects as I would with a higher dosage. But at the same time, my skin does look quite good at the moment with the benzoyl peroxide (for me), but I think it's just a phase as it looked even better this last month as well and I broke out so badly all over my face after that.

I'm just dreading these next few months, as I have really big exams coming up and I wanted to enjoy this summer without worrying about my accutane and my red, dry face! And I need some tips on what kind of makeup to wear while on accutane so I can get it in advance if I decide to use it, right now I use Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover which I love but it dries out my skin as it is, so there's no chance of being able to use it while on accutane...I also used Bare Minerals on the days that the benzoyl peroxide has really dried out my skin, but I think that it breaks me out because I always seem to get terrible isolated cysts whenever I use it for a few days...

So please leave some makeup tips if you have any! smile.png

I wouldn't use Clinique acne solutions because it has acne fighting ingredient in it that will dry your skin out. I like to wear Laura mercier silk Creme foundation or Clinique moisture surge. If your looking for something cheaper o would use Revlon photo ready BB Creme or Maybelline BB Creme but those don't have really good coverage.
