Removing Redness While On Accutane

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

I'm on my 3rd month on Accutane and It's working great. I'm pretty much not getting any new pimples for a while now. The is that my redness isn't really going away and I have a couple things coming up in a month where I really want to be looking the best I can be.

I have read about how using ice packs and putting it against your face for couple hours helps reduce redness.

I've also have been using Emu oil that I bought at a vitamin shop but I just ordered some from Australia hoping it would be a little more effective.

Is there any other tips, tricks, or anything to help reduce redness?

My acne is all flatten out, but it's just really red all over. -


Thanks in advance for your time!

Yea, the dreaded 'Tane Face. You can try some calming moisturizer like Aveeno Calming and taking lukewarm to cool showers/face washes instead of hot water. That will help somewhat, but the overall redness usually lingers until you're finished with the course. Sorry. :(
