In Topic: Accutane 7 Weeks No Improvement

Today, 12:46 PM

It may take 4 or even 5 months to really notice a difference. Try not to worry too much, I'm sure accutane will help your skin. Try to do things to keep you busy and not focus on your skin. Other people don't care as much about our skin as we do! Also I would talk to the doctor/dermatologist prescribing accutane. Sometimes they prescribe an antibiotic at the same time to reduce the breakouts in the beginning of the course.

In Topic: Embarrassed To Go Buy Makeup.

Well you could go to a store that has self checkout lane? Unless you're looking for higher end makeup. I would maybe just try a tinted moisturizer, I think I've seen some guys on here mention the garnier bb cream (oil free).

I just went through all the ingredients in those products, that moisturizer contains algae extract, which is comedogenic. So that could be causing a problem. Avocado oil is slightly comedogenic too, which is in that moisturizer as well.

So, I'm assuming the aha and the face wash are fine, are there any better moisturizers on the market, and ugh why would the moisturizer be on the master non-comedogenic list, so confusing...
Yeah the wash and aha looked fine. Where did you see that moisturizer listed? I checked the list dan recommends and did not see it on there. I use a cetahil moisturizer for acne prone skin. Has SPF in it though so not sure if you're avoiding spfs. Hard to find a good moisturizer that won't clog pores.

It really is hard to find a good moisturizer...I seen the moisturizer listed here: http://www.acne.org/...medogenic-list/

That original post was from 2012. Outdated. If you look at the updated ingredient list algae extract is a 5 on comedogenic (highly comedogenic) I wouldn't use many of the products listed. Best to avoid comedogenic ingredients, fragrances and parabans if possible.
