Another skin update. Gotta love the skin updates!
Well my skin is making good progress since the elimination of Retin A Micro, implementing of chemical peels in routine and use of Tri-Sprintec birth control. However, I keep getting these annoying bumps under my jawline that I could not get rid of. When I would not wear makeup, they would go away, but as soon as I would put makeup (namely, Bare Minerals), they would reappear.
I thought that using Bare Minerals was great for my skin, after all, they tout how Bare Minerals is so pure, that you can sleep in it. YEAH RIGHT! After some thinking last week, I realized that I was getting pimples that cropped up during the day when wearing Bare Minerals, so it had to be some ingredient causing this. I looked online and found out that the ingredient bismuth that can be hazardous to sensitive skin like mine. Check out this article.
So I decided to wear Clinique, as I have had good results with them in the past. So far, acne under my chin has been greatly reduced!
I guess putting slabs of powdered dirt on your face isn’t as healthy as it seems!
On another skin note, I am happy to report that I have returned to not wearing makeup on the weekends. I just throw on some tinted Clearasil and moisturizer and go! I took that for granted when my skin was in great condition. I am just thankful that I have made progress thus far!
