Acutane & Foundation

Recommended Posts

My skin is really dry now that I'm taking Accutane. I want to get a foundation that won't clog pores....suggestions?

BTW...I'm a fair skinned African American woman w/ an olive undertone.

Most drugstores carry Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup but because it has salicylic acid I'd be a little worried about your face peeling. However, it does not seem to clog pores!

Unfortunately, it doesn't have the best variety of color tones. However, "Golden Almond" might work for you.

Also, I have heard GREAT things about Iman's cosmetics line. She had an "oil-free stick foundation" in LOTS of colors. Her web site is iman

make sure that whatever you get is marked "oil free!"

Some women swear by "bare minerals" but others say it makes their acne worse. I've had great success with it, but you MUST clean your makeup brush often...daily if possible.

Good luck!
