I am a teenager with normal to bad acne. I have had immensely oily skin my entire life. But this weekend, in a softball tournament, my skin started becoming super dry. I never sunburn, so that is not it. I used this tinted sunscreen that I have used before, but that should not affect my skin. On Saturday afternoon, I noticed some dry spots circling from my temples to the middle of my cheekbones, so I applied moisturiser. Sunday, I wake up, put on moisturiser, feeling chapped on chin with same as Saturday. Sunday night/Monday, whole face entirely chapped, even under eyes. I have applied moisturiser at least twice a day since Saturday, the dry skin is just getting worse. I have chapped skin over my acne, too.
I am starting Accutane next week, so this is not supposed to be happening until then.
My skin has been super oily forever, up until now. I wanted to know if anyone has any ideas of what is going on and how to heal it.
