Honestly I think you should use a soap that has a lower pH. most soaps out there have a pH reading of 9-11. Thats too high for the skin. And the sad reality is a lot of the acne ingredients like SA are ineffective in some of the cleansers bc the pH of the product makes it that way. Ive noticed just using water only is better than using most soaps. I would aim for a soap that is less than 6pH. here is a list that might help.

In Topic: Bacne Accutane Log

Hey everyone. I'm back to report that my body acne is 100% clear as well as my face. I owe it to the accutane. I was on it for a total of 7 months. Its been about a month and  half since being off it and I'm still maintaining clear skin. My derm said my oil levels will go back up. But how much he doesn't know. He said if I'm fortunate they will stay at a medium and I won't have to deal with anymore acne. But they could become high again and I might have to consider another course. I hope I don't have to endure another course, but I will if thats what I need. For now though I'm going to enjoy the time that I have clear skin. Gee its been years since I could say that. Since freshmen high school and now I'm 23 and feel like a new person with a new outlook on life. If you have any questions please, I'm here to help. Later.

Day 132

Bacne is way different. But I'm not satisfied yet. I'm still seeing minor breakouts here and there. But this has been the best treatment by far. Honestly the only side effect that I have felt is dry lips. Nothing else. Have one more month to go. I hope I still see a improvement. Right now I'm about 85-90% clear. My face is pretty much 100% clear all the time now. I'm thinking I might go on another course later. Because my derm didn't really put me on a heavy dose. Most of the time I was taking 40mg a day. Now I'm take 60mg 3x week and 40mg 4x week. I know some people are taking 80mg a day. See you soon.

Yo, just wanted to chime in and let everyone know that I'm seeing really good results so far with my accutane regime. I'm on day 50 and my back is starting to go back to the glory days. Right now I only have 3-4 active really small pimples. I'm just waiting for my post marks to fade. With that said I would definitely recommend accutane. I am experiencing chapped lips but its manageable with good lip balm. A little bit of joint pain but I do workout 6 days a week so that maybe why. Later
