My Skin Regimin.



This was recommended by my dermatologist.

As of today this is my skin care regimin:


1. Cleanse with Cetaphil / pat dry with fresh towel.

2. Apply a drop of Cera Ve moisturizer and a drop of Oil-Free moisturizer before make-up.

3. Apply oil-free foundation and bronzer.

4. Apply lotion to tops of arms.

Take 2 Minocycline 100mg and 1 Ortho-Novum pill throughout the day.


1. Cleanse with Cera Ve hydrating cleanse and Duac cleanser.

2. Apply a drop of Differin and spread throughout whole face 3x a week.

3. Apply Duac on affected spots.

4. Apply Benzoyl Peroxide pads and spot treatment on chest/back/arms.

In a couple months this will include Accutane.

I have oily skin and acne in my genes.

Hi I'm new to this site. I am starting Accutane next week. I was on it 15 years ago. It worked well, my side effects were not that bad. but unfortunately a few years ago acne returned. So I'm back to the Derm for a second round. I recently had a bad break out and am currently on Septra antibiotic, aczone gel and vatlin gel spot treat, BP for my back. I too take Ortho Novum. I just wanted to say (and might already know this) but make sure u take the Ortho at the same exact time each day. It regulates better that way, and doesn't work as well if u don't. Myself and friends who have taken it say the same. I wish u well on your quest for clear skin. It will happen, being positive goes along way.
