research the long term side effects and judge for yourself, its not just hair loss and dryness, its much more serious things like erectile dysfunction and osteoporosis

thanks! good luck to you too, you seem to be making an intelligent decision, this topic was more aimed at teenagers with no knowledge of accutane. You've had acne for a while like you said and you know what your doing, so good luck! let me know if you need some advice :)

anything other than water and vaseline that touches my face makes it go beet red! even vaseline sometimes does it, i dont know whats caused my permanent redness, could be acne products or accutane. Either way i wish never touched them. My best advice is just dont put anything at all on your skin, just leave it completely. I have to put some form of emollient/ moisturiser on though otherwise my skin gets dry and flares up really bad. sad.gif

In Topic: How I cured my facial redness

since accutane my skins always sore red and dry. I dont get acne anymore apart from moisturiser making me breakout. I hate my skin now, it used to be so nourished and moist but now its dry and course. Its been 3 months since i ended my course and im just going to have to accept the way my skin is now. I would like to exfoliate and have acid peels but my skin's so thin and sensitive i cant. I take omega 3 fish oils which i dont know if they help or not but trying anyway, recently ive been taking collagen supplements aswell to try and regain some elasticity and hopefully heal my skin.

when you say cold showers? how cold? isnt cold water meant to dry out your skin?

thanks for posting

hey thanks for the advice, im in exactly the same situation as you however ive been on accutane. I have the eucerin redness relief night cream but I didnt think it worked too well. It's expensive and you have to be really consistent with it to see results so i kind of gave up with it. Ive recently ordered the day lotion which im exited for it to arrive, i'm desperate to have normal skin again so i'm willing to give it another go. How well did the eucerin go for you?
