So I finished a six month course of accutane in January. Well it went well and it cleared up my skin. I still have to wear make-up everyday because of the awful red marks, but they're starting to fade. Anyway, I haven't broken out really, but I do get these clogged pores and I can get a small amount of pus out of them (gross, I know). They leave a small red mark which frustrates me beyond belief. I just feel like I am never going to be able to go without makeup. I am hoping this isn't a sign of things to come-that I'll start breaking out all over again. My acne was mild/moderate before so I am hoping that if any acne does come back it will be really mild. So my question. Do you think I should start the regime? My derm gave me some expensive cleanser/gel/moisturizer but it's still making me quite dry. Any success stories with the regime post-accutane? Thanks!

Laura :)

No there is no point in doing the regimen. Only do it if you start consistently breaking out again. Because once you start doing the regimen there is no turning back.
