my sister stopped wearing foundation/powder & has way less breakouts now.gna11/30/2012 8:33PM

Sort of. Minimizing what i put on my skin helps. Also using powder fdtn helps when skin is flaringhanhnee11/30/2012 3:03PM

No. It's just a matter of finding the right makeup that doesn't break me out. Most don't, some do.YawningKitten11/30/2012 4:51AM

YES! Once I quit everything but a minimal routine, it all cleared up.halloqueen11/30/2012 1:44AM

When I stopped wearing foundation with cyclopentasiloxane in it it did.+amydbaby11/29/2012 1:17PM

I think I started wearing less makeup after my skin started clearing up due to age and I gained ++julia94111/29/2012 12:40PM

dont forget that it could be the specific brand...ropamie11/29/2012 5:48AM

I break out if I wear mu. I break out if I don't wear mu.lilblacksky11/29/2012 1:45AM

No, definitely not. I tend to get lazy with skincare when I don't have mu to remove at night.huntergray11/29/2012 1:41AM

Oh Yeah... makeup is pore clogging goop.. look at people who don't wear makeup- perfect skin usuallyjustinetindall11/28/2012 10:55AM

Totally disagree. Genetics plays a role in skin. brio81511/30/2012 7:57AM

I've seen just as many people who don't wear makeup who have crappy skin.renaissancegirl11/28/2012 2:47PM

I think your logic is reversed here - people with naturally perfect skin just don't need make-up.Yurippe11/28/2012 1:49PM

well that was snappy! I'm talking from my own personal experience and from what I've seen... relaxjustinetindall11/29/2012 7:34PM

You said, "Look at people who don't wear makeup- perfect skin usually." You didn't say "you."brio81511/30/2012 7:58AM

Thanks, brio! And where was I snappy? Telling others to "relax" is rude. +++Yurippe12/1/2012 5:02AM

Yes, way less breakouts, less clogged pores. Nose pores look way smaller.Herbst311/28/2012 10:31AM

No but I would never wear foundation that broke me out or irritated my skin. They +barbiH11/27/2012 9:54AM
