Crap. I've been off accutane for three months, and I'm loaded with red marks. I went to my dermatologist a few days ago and he told me that for my "redness" he won't put me on skin bleaching cream (which I figure is a good idea seeing as he's the one with the degree out of the two of us), but instead the only thing I can really do to help it is WAIT.

Now I GUESS I can deal with this. But it means I'll be living a shitty life meanwhile. But my question for all of YALL is:

#1- Seeing as my "red mark" problem is not the skin pigmentation itself, but the blood vessels underneath the skin, is there ANYTHING I can do that yall know of to help the healing process?

#2- If not, is there anything I can use that might just temporarily "lighten" (pretty much just make look better) the redness/marks for a few hours or for a whole day (just so I can go out in public more comfortably)?

#3- Would drinking lots of water by any chance help in any sort of way?

PLEASE if you read this and you have any ideas how I could be helped, COMMENT.

I'm curious to try the facemask, but I gotta ask first, have you ever been on accutane? Because post-accutane skin is different than the average person's skin.

my derm put me on Ziana after i got done with my tane last year. it helped with the red marks wonderfully. it is a topical gel with like .25 or .025 tretinoin. ask about it.

water can never hurt, so drink away!
