I've tried oatmeal masks. I found them to not improve my acne, and they're also quite messy. The best mask I've found is honey/yogurt, but even then it doesn't really improve acne per se, more skin texture.

Oatmeal never helped me, either. I never used it as a mask but rather as a face wash. It made my skin feel very smooth and temporarily calmed the redness, but overall didn't help the acne.


In a nutshell, I've had mild/moderate adult on-set acne which began towards the end of 2009. Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I have been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here will reflect that. Considering I have never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I'm still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.

Currently:
Began Accutane (Myorisan) on Sept. 30th, 2014 for a 6 month course (plus any leftover pills I may have) and am/will be consistently on 40mg throughout.
Month 1:  Initial breakout, lips became a little dry.
Month 2:  Skin started clearing, dry lips got worse, flaking around nose and eyebrows.
Month 3:  Skin almost completely clear, lips became less dry, eyes and eyelids began to get dry, still flaking around nose and eyebrows.
Month 4:  TBA

Skincare:
AM:
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
Aveeno Protect + Hydrate SPF 50 for Face
Argan or Avocado Oil (as an "eye cream")
PM:
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
Rosewater
Argan or Avocado Oil (both as a moisturizer and eye cream)
