unless you're very self conscious about your acne, i'd suggest swimming bare faced. i've noticed that my skin actually improves when i'm swimming a lot. (maybe the chrlorine is a good disinfectant?) anyway i found this on the website acne.com:

"Swimming is probably the best form of exercise for acne sufferers; in water, perspiration, heat and friction are largely out of the picture."

Any silicone based makeup will be water resistant. A "long wearing" formula would be even more water resistant. If you like Colorstay, that should wear like iron, even in the water......

I've heard that the shiseido sunscreen foundation (the liquid, I think they have a cream as well, and it's with the sunscreen and not the makeups) stays on really well.
