Post in Acne-Prone Skin

Changing all my beauty products helped heal my acne?

Hey girls!

First post in the beauty insider community!

One of my friends converted me to Sephora products back in April. Since then, i've switched out my sunscreen (hello Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 2.5 oz/ 73.9 mL ), I don't really use concealer anymore, just a non-comdeogenic tinted moisturizer or a nars foundation, again, non-comedogenic.

I also started double cleansing, first with a greasy makeup remover and THEN with my usual foaming cleanser. 

My acne medications have remained the same, I actually STOPPED some oral medications for acne (not accutane), but started a concentrated BHA serum daily.

Since then, my acne has completely disappeared, after almost 5 years of terrible cystic acne linked to a medical disorder.

I also started a new contraceptive 6 months ago, that usually gives acne as a side-effect.

My question is, has anyone else experienced this? Could switching out my makeup and sunscreen really have had such a big impact on my acne?

Let me know! Xx

@Fabicatdr It definitely can! Once I started learning more about skin care and switched things up my skin got so much better! I don't have acne nearly as much, and nothing like it was before. My face isn't super greasy all the time either. Glad you got things cleared up!
