I’ve generally always had clear skin. I may get a random pimple every now and then, but overall, I’ve never had a problem with breakouts. I just got a new job in a more professional environment that requires (it’s not mandated, but just more fitting) me to wear makeup during work. I like doing my makeup, but prior to this position, I never did so with any frequency, only when I wanted to look extra cute or had to for whatever reason. Now that I’m wearing it more frequently, my skin is freaking out! I don’t remember the last time I had a pimple before now and now I’ve had at least five in the past week! The only real problem I’ve had with it before is that it’ll get a little oily, but one of those oil absorbing strips will take care of it, no problem. Now I go through like 3 in a day!! It’s ridiculous!! Same with my hair. Normally, I can skip a day or two washing my hair, now if I don’t wash it every day it gets oily and gross! It sucks!!
Does anyone have any advice or tips on how to fix this. Not so much to get rid of the zits, more on bases or foundations that are nicer on the skin? In the meantime I’ve been going without, but it doesn’t look as polished. Right now I use either Neutrogena powder foundation or an Olay BB cream/tinted moisturizer (generally, I have to use one of the oil absorbing things after applying to get rid of excess moisture. I’ve been avoiding using it though and sticking to the powder) and Physician’s Formula bronzer. Is there anything else that would be better to use?
