Summer sweating, make-up and breakouts
EleanorAnne posted:
I sweat! This heat and humidity is ruining my make-up and causing more than usual breakouts. I am having a terrible time wearing make-up and problems with my acne cream during the summer.

I am constantly wiping and blotting my face, so after a little while outside I have wiped it all off. If I have applied an acne cream to my forehead I feel like it is sweating into my eyes.

Any suggestions?

I have the same problem! During the summer months, I've been using Clinique. They have a line of sports make-up that is lighter but with great coverage. It seems to be helping and my face doesn't feel like it's melting off. I still have break outs but not nearly as much. Hope this helps!
