Wow so I found out my make-up, Bare Minerals, might be the thing that is clogging up my pores! It contains mineral oils and other ingredients, like talc and bismuth, which irritates the skin! Plus, I use Benefit's Boiing concealer, and it is used on my affected areas.. So, I decided to go for Tarte foundation and concealer (paraben and oil free), and tomorrow I am going to buy a pur-minerals primer. The Tarte foundation covers more so I don't have to pack on the concealer.. and the primer is also color correcting. This foundation makes your skin look awesome by the way!

On the bright side, I realized that my t-zone is really smooth and clear! My skin seems to be clearing.. My clogged pores are still surfacing, slowly but surely.

It's been a month on these medications and my skin has proven to have less cystic acne but many clogged pores surfacing.

Word of advice, the process will go so much quicker if you keep a bare face. Ditching makeup was the best thing for me personally as i could give my skin a chance to breath and heal. My acne is definitely triggered by internal factors but not contributing to it with makeup gives me an idea of what works and what doesn't. It also helped me feel more comfortable in my skin , blemishes and all. Good Luck on your journey!
