llouis-
i have had acne for about 9 years now. i know exactly how you feel about being the only one to suffer from bad skin. all my friends too have gorgeous skin and it drives me crazy! first off about make-up it is by far one of the worst things you can put on your skin. you need to know that even if a product says it's "oil-free" or non-comedogenic it doesn't mean a thing. there is no regulation for these companies and they can print whatever they want even if it is not true. from reports that i have read almay seems to be one of the few lines that actually has oil-free makeup. i recently switched to almay foundation since i can't bear to go to work or out with friends with out some sort of cover-up. BUT... i wash my face right when i get home and on the weekends i don't wear makeup. the less amount of time you wear makeup the better for your skin. now about moisturizer, almost no person with acne needs to use a moisturizer, we make enough oil to keep our skin moist and putting on a moisturizer will just cause the dead skin cells to clump together and clog our pores. of course there are always exceptions and it is possible to have dry skin and acne but for most of us we don't need to use it. I have recently started using a product line that a dermatologist created and i can't be happier with the results. it's only been 3 weeks now and my skin has never looked better. i can't wait for 2 months to come which is how long he says to wait for maximum results. i'm ready to get back out and be myself again and not let acne ruin anymore of my life! best of luck to you!
what is the name of skin care you're using now? it's not proactive is it? that did not work for me....
