After being on Minocycline going on 5 months now, I am really seeing a difference. I have also been on 10%BP wash in the shower in the morning, followed by a Clindamycin phosphate/BP cream afterwards. I then use Cetaphil moisturizing lotion to help flaking/dryness. At night I wash with a Cetaphil bar and then use a generic version of Retin-a. (Not sure of the %, but it was bumped up in April).

My friends have noted that my face is always red, and I blush at basically any attention. (this never happened before I started the regimen). Does anyone have any tips on how to get the redness to go away? It only burns for a minute in the morning after I put the clinamycin phosphate cream on. But after that, I'm fine. My face is just red.

maybe use the medication less often, or at night instead of the morning, unless of course your doctor says otherwise. or maybe you just need an ultra-calming moisturizer... i always like the aveeno ultra-calming with feverfew, but when i run out of that i'm going to try cerave because everyone raves about their products on this site.

Calming moisturizer! Also, when did you start seeing results?

I can't see your pictures but using a drop or two of jojoba oil as a moisturizer stopped most of the BP side effects for me.

Do you use the acne.org jojoba oil or do you buy in in a store? if so which one do you buy/where from? I want to use it but im scared it will break me out.

Hey,

 

I understand your concern, I thought it'd be a major breakout issue for me, but one drop then dabbing off the excess with a towel hasn't caused any problems thus far after about.. a month and a half's use (I think).

 

I don't buy the acne.org one because of the shipping charges to the UK. I get one off Ebay instead - basically the cheapest organic one that crops up at the time. A tiny little bottle lasts a good few weeks.
