face look best after shower

I am currently using an antibiotic compund in the morning and night. I wash with the vichy ceanser before i apply the antibiotic, and exfoliate every second day instead of cleansing in the morning. My question is, why does my face look so good 10 minutes after i shower, weather i exfoliate or cleanse it looks amazing, you cant even see most of the red spots. then when i get home from school or even 2 hours later my face is oily everywhere and the spots look way worse. whats going on? and why does it look so much better 10 minutes after i shower, then after about 2 hours its oily and the red spots are visable again

If you're having a hot shower it dries out the surface of your skin which evens out the tone. However, this is bad for your skin in the long run, try to avoid washing your face in overly warm/hot water whenever possible because it causes skin damage which will just result in more acne. Your face may look like shit when it's a bit oily but you'll get less spots.
