Hi guys,

I have a question about my very dry skin, ive had mild acne for awhile now and my face tends to get extremely dry when I use cleansers that have products such as glycolic acid. I noticed my face got very dry after i got out of hot showers as I would see all of this crackling white skin.

However, now that i have stopped my peals, cleansers for some reason im getting less irritated skin but something even worse, i get very dark patches that are basically black on my face where acne was or is present.

I have tried microderm and scraping it off myself, and i never get breakouts but the dry black skin comes back every time, any ideas on what it is?

I am on minocycline in addition.
