Re: Need an older person's opinion here
I asked my derm the same question, though it was about the acne on my back. She says she's seeing more and more women in their 30s and 40s getting acne -- she doesn't know why.
You definitely need to wash the makeup off before going to bed. Wearing makeup to sleep is very bad, IMO. I used to neglect to wash my face properly around the forehead, underneath my bangs (way-back-when in the 80s when bangs were cool ... ha ha), before bedtime, and I would get breakouts there. When I started to wash more thoroughly, the breakouts there stopped.
Best of luck.
