Hey gals:

I am 2 weeks into my accutane treatment. I still wear makeup even though my face is really dry, i just have to do it because i am working full time and have lots of meetings with important people. But somehow i feel guilty doing this. My derm said do whatever i like as long as i am happy (she met putting makeup on and stuff).

Do you girls out there put makeup on to cover up during your treatment? I would like to know if i can keeping having my makeup on throughout the entire time.

Many thanks!

    hey!

    i’ve given up on using foundation while on this stuff. It made my skin feel clogged and sticky… all i wanted to do was wash my face.

    I now bite the bullet and go to work without any foundation <<cringe!>> i HATE HATE HATE it… but i know it is better for me in the long run. I now just wear eye makeup. If i go out in the evening i wear foundation… but then its only for a few hours, and not all day.

    i am hoping that one day my skin will be so great, that i wont NEDD foundation… is that wishful thinking? :P

    Hey not at all, that is exactly what i think is going to happen sooner or later. Even though i put makeup on pretty much everyday, i have to say, i hate using foundation…having to remove the make up when i get home is really a lot of trouble.

    But lets keep an open mind, i think soon we will not need foundation no more :D

    it would be so cool not to have to waer foundation on a normal day to day basis!
    nowadays makeup just makes my face feel clogged and dirty… feels better without, but i am SO self concious i can’t BEAR to look at anyone.
    <sigh>
    it will get better, it will get better, it WILL get better! :)
