7 Months Post Accutane

So my skin isn't doing so hot right now and it has been this way for maybe 2.5 weeks now. I've only gotten a couple of VERY small pimples...well more like itty bitty red dots that never looked nasty or came to a head. But, I have sooo many clogged pores and blackheads! My entire chin, under my bottom lip, and under my nose is awful. I had a few blackheads before, but this all kind of became worse when I read about this thing called the "oil cleansing method" or OCM. I haven't used any castor oil (maybe I should be) but I have been experimenting with plain jojoba oil. After the first couple times I did it, I LOVED the effects which made me want to do it more and more. My skin was so soft and my makeup looked much more flawless. Next thing I know I'm getting all these blackheads. I don't know if they were already there deep in the skin or if they just developed. They appear to be very close to the surface so I WANT to believe that the OCM is actually helping, but I can't be sure. I am going to continue doing it every once in a while and see if this is just a purging phase and see how things look in a couple weeks, but I will be keeping a close eye on things. Feeling worried and scared.
