Best maintenance products to use post-tane?

Accutane worked great while I was on it, but even just within a few days of going off I started getting little tiny blemishes here and there. I'm a 21-year-old male, my cumulative dose was 156 mg/kg, and my acne was moderate, certainly not severe. So in all likelihood I would NOT benefit from another round. I'm going to see my derm in a little over a week, but I was just hoping I could get some advice from you guys about some sort of long-term topical treatment that should work well at this point. I'm hoping this can be controlled with topicals relatively easily, as it's much, much more mild than pre-tane. Right now literally all I'm doing is washing twice a day.

I'm also wondering if diet could be relevant. I eat a pretty healthy, well-balanced diet, so I don't see how it could effect my skin. I'm not like crunching down fast food left and right. Is this likely to be a factor somehow?

I really appreciate the help, guys. Thanks!

well...i mean i dont have experience with this yet, on day 4 of tane, but...i would just wait to talk to the dermatologist.

there are probably a lot of different options that would take care of it.
