In Topic: How Long To Be Out Of Your System

03 December 2012 - 11:39 PM

When i stopped my course, my derm told me not to wax etc for 6 months after treatment. It takes a month for the drug to leave your system but apparently your skin is still healing itself for a while after.

In Topic: Makeup Concerns On Accutane

27 October 2012 - 08:47 AM

If you're not experiencing any redness or burning or any effects from the Clinique at all, I'd say keep using it and relax. Usually if a foundation or other product is going to react with your skin and cause discomfort, it will within a few hours. I'm a makeup artist so I thought it might be worth a comment! Throughout my course the accutane made my skin REALLY dry, so i used a thick moisturiser (gel, not a lotion) and after leaving it to do its magic, applied a good primer on top before foundation. I'd say keep on doing what you're doing as it seems to be working for you. I managed fine all throughout my course doing the same only using Graftobian hd Glamour creme as its a cream foundation so it really helped my dry skin. If you feel you'd rather switch products to be safe and you're a fan of Clinique, I'd second using the Redness Solutions foundation.
