Hi Deepika,

What happened?Did you change any products?I suspect it could be one of the make up products?Can you list all the skin care and make up products you are currently using?

Hi Dear,

Since when are you having breakouts?Did you notice breakouts when you added any particular product?

As of now,I want you to take it easy with make up and stick to Lancome BB cream.Do you use any contours,bronzers,highlighters etc?

What is the frequency of Epiduo you are currently using?

I also want you to additionally undergo some hormonal tests like thyroid,pcos,sugar,deficiencies etc.

Have you made any changes diet wise?It could also be due to food allergy.

Hi dear 😊..I have gone through all these medical tests except sugar one in this january only and it came out well..when it comes to makeup, yes I use Mac soft and gentle highlighter more often..I used cetaphil moisturizer on my face last month and next day when I woke up I got few more pimples but I think its non comedogenic..I dont know if this moisturizer caused me break out or something else ?I apply Epiduo every alternate day at night .

Hi Deepika,

Since Acne is a hormonal problem,I would always advise one to get routine tests done.

Your Mac highlighter is the culprit here.Most of the MAC,The Balm,Tarte cosmetics are highly comedogenic hence I do not recommend them for acne prone folks.You always have to be very careful while choosing products because just one comedogenic ingredient/product is enough to cause havoc on the skin and sabotage the anti-acne effects of epiduo acne regimen.

Coming to Cetaphil moisturizer,it is comedogenic.It has broken me out as well hence I am not a big fan of Cetaphil products.

I would advise to discontinue these products and stick to products which have worked for you and completely avoid adding new skin care/make up products.

Hehe you are most welcome and happens to the best of us

You can try some powder highlighters or eye shadows to highlight your face.

I some how feel the rich emollient cream base of Cetaphil is comedogenic.Every time I tried,it has broken me out.

I know right,its difficult to choose products for our skin type

I use MUA Highlighter Powder.I believe they are dupes for NARS.

You can apply moisturiser and then apply Epiduo.But I would suggest you apply Epiduo on cleansed bare skin.Unless you are facing any dryness,there is no need to buffer Epiduo.

MUA is Make up Academy,a subsidiary of Make up revolution.You can check out their site,they ship worldwide if I am not wrong.

2 other highlighters which I am seeing often on youtube are Becca Cosmetics and ABH.

Becca highlighter is mildly comedogenic.No ingredient disclosure on ABH.
