#3442334 My Accutane Journey

Posted by simon12345 on 19 July 2014 - 07:43 PM

You mentioned your acne only mild-moderate, i only have a few spots with very oily skin and some fading red marks on my cheeks. Do you think it is worth taking accutane? My derm mentioned that he would put me on it but i had some reservations about the side effects and if my acne was bad enough to take it. 

#3375489 Benzac Making Skin Worse

i used benzac AC myself, and really you should first start of with 2 1/2% then work up to 5% but never use 10%. I don't know if you are using the wash and the cream, but if i were u i would buy the wash at 5% and use 2 1/2% cream which got me very good results removing all pimples which i barley ever get anymore. The only downside if red marks and acne scars. Also remember to use a moisturiser prefarably with SPF of 15+
