What Does A Clogged Pore From Moisturizer/cream Feel And Look Like?

Recommended Posts

I'm on the 5th month of Accutane and I want to know what kind of acne I have at this point. Some are deep and painful (cysts) and others are small and quiet. Which type of acne can be caused by topical prescriptions and moisturizers?

Personally, I've never found a difference between the type of acne caused by topicals versus acne caused by other factors (diet, hormones etc)

I think the type of acne is a mix of many different influences (for example, using a topical that your skin doesn't like whilst you're also under a lot of stress and also eating a "bad" diet might well be different to using that same topical whilst eating a clean diet and being stress free) The same topical will affect your skin differently depending on a variety of other influences.

That's just me personally though and I would be interested for other people's thoughts.
