What should I use after I am off of accutane

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I finished my course of accutane a few weeks ago and my skin cleared up completely. What should I be on or should use to help maintain the clear skin. THis is my second course and my first course I was put on retin and that didnt turn out well obviously and I am so confused on what I should be on now. I am starting to break out a little but nothing major. Any suggestions.

Right now I am using cetaphil antibacterial soap along with Kiehl's multipurpose moisturizer. I do not want to use anything too harsh beccause my skin is very sensitive. I stopped shaving with a razor and I swithed to using an electric shaver. Anyway let me know what your experiences are and suggestions. Thanks in advance.

I would do either of the following:

1) Use nothing at all other than water. Your skin will probably thank you for it.

2) Try an alternative Retinoid, something like Green Creme.

It would be lovely to have a maintenance regime that works after tane but there are just no guarantees I'm afraid.

Good luck.
