Feeling a lil depressed and couldn't any better place to share how I am feeling today.
I finished a 7months accutane 40mg course in Feb this year. Its been exactly 3 months post accutane today and i felt its coming again. No pain, no bumps , no pastules but I am just feeling large red spots on my face with accompanying white heads.
I did have post acne red spots but today it seems a bit too much. Is this acne?
Not sure if its acne coming back or it could just be period cycle or is it because I have started using tretinoin 0.025% gel regularly for the last 4 days.
I wasn't using it just because I thought to give my skin time to heal so I can go for skin peels but I was constantly getting white heads every morning I wake up hence started using it regularly.
But today I am just feeling a bit depressed if all that 7 months of treatment is going useless or is it just me thinking too much ? I don't know.
Since I have finished the treatment I am in hell of trouble identifying what is my skin type. extremely dry flaky cheeks with super oily t-zone. I can't do makeup , I don't know which moituriser to use? Tried combination range but that's not working well either too greasy or too flaky for my cheeks.
I finish using face wash then skin starts to peel and scrap and when I apply moisturiser it becomes oily. I am just soooo confused.
Please anyone tell me what to do. Shall I continue with tretinoin gel. how many weeks it will take to show me results? does it really work? Since my cheeks are so dry can I moisturise first and then use gel or it should be the other way around?
Please help me and do reply my post.

Tretinoin is no fun but lots of people on this site have had tremendous success. And the fact that you just recently finished a course of accutane will definitely work in your favor.
It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.
God is good to me..........more than I deserve.
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
