In Topic: Random Breakout On Retin A

i dont think its the heat , has your diet been changing ? and do you moisturizer after applying retin a ?

My diet hasn't changed.  I used to use Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 when I was working because I was in the sun a lot.  But I've quit my job and I haven't used moisturizer for 3 months without a problem until now.

In Topic: Face Still Not Clear After 5 Months Of Accutane

don't worry accutane didn't clear me up after 6 months either...so it's probably not the oil that causes you acne? maybe bacteria, or something internal with you stomach. at least for me that's what i have it narrowed down to.  my skin as of now is "normal" oil wise you could say but i still get acne, no where near as bad as before accutane but it's still moderate/mild.  sooo it might be the build up of toxins in your body idk lol i'm just spewing words now.

Well when I was on Accutane there was no oil on my face anymore.  After I was done my course the oil eventually came back.  Right now my face gets quite oily.

Wait until you are about two weeks off the medication. If your derm prescribes you a tretinoin cream or gel, use it; it'll do loads to fade those marks. If not, try M2 Skin Refinish Lotion, it's got a good concentration of AHA's that should help clear those up quite nicely. But you need to wait until your course is over.

Okay thanks a lot.
