Skin looks a bit.. plasticky?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys...

I am almost done with my accutane treatment... but I have come to notice.

My face used to be oily.. then the middle of my treatment my skin was not oily at all. My skin is still not oily now.. but appears at times to look a bit "plastic like"(Kind of like old person skin) or shiny because of this. I can see it on my hands a bit and on my face I believe..

has this happend to you?

This seems like 'dead skin', i get it too sometimes- after a few days of normal cleansing and exfoliating it usually goes away.

I believe it is the 'trapped' oil beneath the dead skin that causes this.
