FINISHED ACCUTANE. WHEN CAN I EXFOLIATE?

Recommended Posts

heyy whats good guys?

I've just finished a 6-month course of Accutane on Jan 18, 2010.

So i've been off of it for exactly 2 weeks.

My skin is acne free, not overly dry anymore and I just have red marks and a couple pitted scars.

My question is when is it safe to exfoliate?

Also I'm planning to use St. Ives Apricot Scrub Gentle.

Do you guys have any suggestions on exfoliators that are gentle and not too harsh on the skin?

Please let me know. id really appreciate it!

Thank you so much in advance! ;)

Hey man, don't know much about Accutane and when you should start exfoliating, but I am guessing soon. I exfoliate with St. Ive's Blemish and Blackhead scrub and have decent results. It gets rid of the flakiness and doesn't break me out at all. Stupid that I'm using it though, since I'm pretty much clear. I want to finish the bottle and get the one mentioned, with the natural ingredients. So I think we should both use that one at the same time and see what kinda results we get.

i think if you look on one of the sticky for accutane posts it talks about you can exfoliate on accutane once every two weeks or so. So i figure you're good

thanks Joey T ;)

i've have the St. Ives Apricot Scrub in Gentle. I've used it twice. And I broke out the next day on both times I've used it. So i wouldn't recommend it. Screw St Ives lol

thanks for the reply BrazilianJJ. much appreciated my friend ;)
