teen acne.. using stieva


I'm 16 and I started using stieva when my dermatologist recommended it to me.. I didn't have a lot of acne.. and didn't wear foundation.. it was 2 years ago. After, i stopped using it because my acne was gone and my face was a little red.. so i thought it wouldnt come back.. been maybe 4 months, it came back and then i tried murad from the tv.. and it gave me more acne.. so now I returned to stieva but i wear foundation.. i try to wear good foundation like mineral so that it can help. Do you think it's good i returned to stieva and is it bad to wear foundation?

Retinoids (such as stieva) are certainly good for acne. It can take 3-4 months to get good results from retinoids, so don't give up!

It's fine to wear foundation, so long as it doesn't contribute to your breakouts. You can check lists like the one here which lists comedogenic ingredients, to make sure that you're using a foundation that's not likely to break you out.
