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 (22 years old). Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may 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.

Finished my Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg every month for 6 months

Products Used While On Accutane & still currently using, as my skin hasn't returned to its normal state yet:
Cleansers:  Plain 'ol Oatmeal or sometimes no cleanser at all (AM) // Avalon Organics CoQ10 Repair Facial Cleansing Milk (PM)
Toner:  Rosewater or George's Aloe Spray (usually only PM)
Moisturizers:  Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen for Face, SPF 50 (AM) // Argan Oil or Avocado Oil (PM)

Other:  Reviva Labs Vitamin E Stick for around my eyes
Bausch & Lomb Soothe XP-Extra Protection Emollient Eye Drops
Manual exfoliation once a week with Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub
^^^ which may or may not have been ideal, but the flakes got pretty bad and were definitely noticable!
