My Skincare On Accutane



So far my skin care regimen since I've been on accutane is doing pretty well. My skin is normal, not dry or oily and I got clear very quickly. My biggest problem now is all the PIH and unevenness.

Old regimen


Cleansers -

Aveeno clear complexion foaming cleanser on most days

Dove pink bar in days when my skin looks a little dryer

Moisturiser -

Neutrogena oil free moisture - sensitive skin on my face neck and chest

Some kind of lotion that smells nice on the rest of my body

I have a sunscreen but i hardly use it to be honest. I use the moisturiser a lot more but not every morning since I sweat a lot.


Cleanser -

aveeno clear complexion foaming cleanser (I really don't think this is clearing my complexion but it doesn't irritate my skin)


Neutrogena oil free all over my face

Ponds dry skin cream around my eyes, corners of my mouth and nose, neck and chest (drier areas)

On the rest of my body I use Some kind of jergens, Vaseline, Victoria's Secret, avon or bath and body works lotion depending in what I feel like smelling like (I have 12 different bottles of lotion)

Lately I've been using Vaseline men's

Proposed regimen

I'm thinking of changing my moisturizers

For day time I want the aveeno positively radiant with SPF (since I'm very non compliant with sunscreen)

For night time I've bought the ponds clarant b3 for normal to dry skin to hopefully fade my marks.

The aveeno is proving very difficult to find.

Tonight will be my first night using the ponds b3

And before I forget

Makeup removal

Clearasil clear skin wipes

Ponds cold cream

Paper towel or another wipe

Aveeno cleanser

Then my neutrogena moisturiser

Ponds moisturiser everywhere on my face since I've pretty much dried it out.

I hardly wear makeup so this happens maybe once every 2 weeks or so.
