Skin Care after Accutane

Recommended Posts

So it's a little less than 2 months since I finished my 4-month course. I've already found out that using benzoyl peroxide made me breakout with an acne-like rash. Is anything with salicylic acid in it bad for my skin right now too (like Clean & Clear Dual Action moisturizer)? So can I never use those 2 things again or what? Is it just a gentle face wash, moisturizer, and maybe a clay mask for spot treatment from here on out?

You will probably be able to use those products again but not just yet if they give you a rash. A gentle moisturiser is all you need, do a search on the forum for moisturiser recommendations.

FIRST 12 months after accutane, water and if you prefer a gentle cleanser. Moisturiser when needed I reckon, not part of a routine!

Other than that wear sunblock if you are in t he sun for an extended period of time, otherwise just water.

No BP or SA! Mild cleansers like Aquaphor or SpectroJel/SpectroDerm. For creams you can use Green Cream level 3.

But really, it's up to you. I'd say try all different ones to see what works for you but that can get expensive! If they offer a trial or travel size you can try that :)
