Hi I'm an 18 year old male and have been on accutane for about a little over a month I was put on 20 mg once a day for the first month then I was put on 30 mg for this month once a day. And I was wondering what face soap and lotion to use? I've been using cetaphil antibacterial bar soap every morning and night then after I wash I use cetaphil face lotion with SPF 15 it's works but my my face is ether always red or pink my skin isn't dry becuase I use lotion and my face is soft but it's always really red or pink and my body is tan. I'm also out in the sun 6 hours a day skateboarding but I use oil free SPF 55 sun screen and re apply every 1 to 2 hours! And still pink or red somebody help me!!!

i used lucidum cleansing lotion for sensitive skin(accutane makes ur skin dry and thus sensitive).

 

i was later(when it got cold here) given a light moisturiser.."dermadew aloe gel".

 

i only started using cetaphil lotion after my skin got all dry and cracked and thus dark.

No, it's not that red - looks more like the lighting is giving that impression. Just be careful of the sun, please! I don't want to sound like a mum, I know you enjoy skateboarding and being active but maybe also wear a baseball cap, just for the extra protection? I took Roaccutane at 16 for 8 months and received some nasty burns even with all the sunscreen and care I took. It just happens.


My Skincare Routine

Morning:
Wash face with Thursday Plantation Acne Face Wash

 

Night:

Remove makeup with Nivea Daily Essentials Facial Cleansing Wipes (Fragrance Free)
Wash face with Thursday Plantation Acne Face Wash

Gently scrub face with regular table salt
Wash face with Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash

 

Shower:

Clean & Clear Deep Action In-Shower Facial Mask
 

Antibiotics: Doryx 50mg morning and at night

Make up: Revlon Colorstay for combination/oily skin
Did an 8 month course of Roaccutane in 2003

Doesn't look that red at all to me, however I noticed that you're lighter under the eye are so I can see the difference.

Try doing a face mask with honey + turmeric or perhaps using a green primer or moisturiser? Aveeno ultra calming moisturiser is supposed to really help with facial redness


Morning Routine:

- Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz

- Hyaluronic Acid Serum (homemade)

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (on acne prone areas)

- Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Cream (10% Glycolic Acid)

- SK:N Sunscreen SPF 30

- W7 Camera Ready Primer

 

Evening Routine:

- Lush Ultrabland + Washcloth 

- Soap & Glory ULTIMELT Hot Cloth Cleanser + Washcloth

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Differin 0.1% cream 

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (stops oil production)

- Vitamin C Serum (also homemade) OR

- Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum

 

Once/Twice a week:

- Green Clay Mask (+ salicylic acid)

- Exfoliate with No7 skin cleansing brush
