Im on tretinoin cream and monodox. My skin is really really oily (its been like this before I started acne treatment) and I'm tired of having to blot pretty much every hour. My skin is also dehydrated from the tretinoin so I have a lot of flakey patches so it's really hard to help my oiliness when it makes my dry patches worse and vice versa. Any tips or products to help?

Skin can be very tricky.  The more you dry it out, the more oil it will produce.  This oil will clog pores and produce more acne.  My suggestion would be a coconut or olive oil mask. I know it sounds odd, but your goal is to decrease your skins production of oils.  Just make sure that after you complete the mask, you wash all the oil off your skin, and apply your usual moisturizer.

careful what moisturizers you use. some make me really oily like cetaphil.

 

ive been using Dr. Lins daily hydrating gel which seems to help with the oily-ness you can get it at CVS

Coconut oil can help you treat and prevent acne. I would suggest also Proactiv! It worked for people I know, But I think it really depends on the user!
