Would you go in public without ANY makeup?

Asked by: Sweet Cheeks 369 views Makeup , ,

I have moderate acne and acne scars. At the moment my forehead looks a mess and I have two disgustingly growing zits that hurt on my cheeks. I usually wear Clinique’s tinted moisturizer with spf 25 and then use BareMinerals concealer for the problem areas.

But I feel like makeup just makes my acne worse in the long run even if it makes me look clean for the day.

Would you go out in public without any makeup to cover red spots and other imperfections? Or is that too disgusting for people to see?

    To answer the topic question … No unless I’m going to Wal-Mart but honestly even then probably not. Now to what you actually wrote. You might need to change your skin care to help with the acne. I used to use Clinique as well and it ALWAYS broke me out!! For skin care you should look for a line that is actually made for acne prone skin such as Adrien Arpel or Neutrogena even. For a moisturizer I use Daily Defense Oil Free from Adrien Arpel which has SPF 15 in it. And for a concealer, I use Color Me Beautiful Camouflage Concealer or if I’m on a cheap budget, I know this sounds stupid but Wet and Wild has a great concealer stick that I bought at CVS for like $2. I don’t like Bareminerals (as it doesn’t cover well.) I know a lot of my friends used to use it and it didn’t cover well. You need to start looking at other companies who have better coverage for your skin.

    I used to always apply and reapply makeup but I started having acne breakouts then I was told that it was probably because I apply makeup on an unclean face so the trapped dirt cause the acne. My face gradually became clean-looking without acne or any visible acne marks when I stopped applying makeup, just light lipstick and plain powder after shower and no reapplying even if my face was already quite oily.

    I pretty much had the same problem but it was due to eczema. I went to a dermatologist and got on treatment. Needless to say I had to get on topical steroid creams. Hopefully that can be your last resort. After you get on board and find the appropriate treatments, I would then say it’s safe to say on using makeup with more coverage.
