Now for a quick skin update - I went to see the dermatologist today, and he prescribed a combination of oral and topical antibiotics for my skin: Minocycline and Clindamycin Phosphate. He also told me not to use any moisturiser...(this will be a hard habit for me to break - especially during fall/winter! I may have to look into oil-free moisturisers if my skin gets too dry and flaky.) To be honest - I'd have preferred a natural/non-medicated approach to cleaning up my acne - but I'm willing to give this antibiotic approach a try. Part of me wonders if this is worth it - my acne is mild/moderate and not really noticeable when covered with mineral make-up...I hope I don't make the problem worse! I have another appointment in 2 months to evaluate my progress.
Now back to the fun stuff - make up! NYC Blushable Creme Sticks have been popular with beauty bloggers/youtubers for quite a while now - and I can see why! I picked up Plaza Pink for myself and Mauvin Uptown for my mom....and after trying my creme stick on today - I'm in LOVE!

Have you ever taken antibiotics for acne? Do you like cream blushes?
