I started getting acne when I was about 13.. it's been a long road.

I'm almost 26. Had acne since around age 21 which fluctuates between the high and low ends of what I'd say would be moderate.
I had no skin issues whatsoever when I was a teenager and I really miss not having to try to keep my skin "under control."
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!

35 F here! I've had moderate to severe acne (face, chest, ears, neck, back, lower back, upper arms... ) since 13, but have managed well with the full arsenal!
Youngins, don't be discouraged, you can have your skin (and your dating life!) back!

WOW. If this were a contest, I might be the winner. I am 47 and have had bad acne non-stop since I was ~14.
