Hi all,

I'm on month 3 of accutane and my once oily skin is obviously very dry. However my moisturiser still makes me look shiny, even though I'm not oily.

I've heard a lot about CeraVe moisturiser, does this make skin look shiny?
Can anyone recommend a non shiny moisturiser for me please?
Thanks guys :)

Cerava is the best! i use it currently while im on accutane. Get the one in the big tub... literally will last you the whole treatment and beyond! put it on right after you pat your face dry with a clean cloth. obviously when you apply it your face will look moist for 8 mins. so let it set in before you add anything else on your face like makeup and whatnot. also get the moisturizing  cleanser in the pump... makes my skin feel so calm after cleansing during the harsh treatment. 

 

My skincare: 

 

Remove makeup with bioderma on a small cotton round

half and hour later cleanse with cerave moisturizing cleanser using tepid to cool water.

pat face dry with clean paper towl (i know weird... but im allergic to detergent) 

Add cerave moisturizer (i add maybe two layers depending on how my skin feels)

wait 15 mins and have breakfast

Wet a cosmetic sponge and ring it out so its damp

Take Nars Sheer Glow (greatest accutane foundation) and take the littlest amount and gently pat on face (no rubbing)

I dont need a lot of foundation because my acne wasnt all that bad to begin with i just have very allergic, acne prone, rosacea skin (love my irish heritage)

I like Neutrogena for Combination skin. Its a perfect balance for my dry and oily areas and every time I try to change, I go back. It's really light and not oily so it feels great. There's no SPF in it but personally I don't mind, but just an FYI

Thanks both of you! Does anybody know where I can buy Cerave in the UK?

Cerave is awesome and has lots of great stuff to make your skin look really well moisturized without it being oily. And for a huge bottle, the price isn't out of people's price range.

 

My favorite one though, is a bit on the pricey side. The Clinique dramatically different moisturizng gel is awesome. It goes on really well and absorbs greats. The gel formula doesn't make your skin look oily at all. It also sits very well under makeup.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

I am on accutane too and I use a very heavy moisturiser followed by argan oil. This makes my skin perfect again and not dry or peely at all but obviously makes it very shiny. I find putting a silicone primer over the top gets rid of the shine and locks moisture in so it's a win-win :)

I use w7 Camera ready primer (so cheap!)


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
