Finally Finished with Accutane

Recommended Posts

ok now that i have finished acctuane, i am wondering what to do with my face now. i am completely satisfied with what accutane has done and it has made me about 99% clear, although there still are redmarks, i know those will fade with time. but i am almost fully convinced that my acne before accutane was caused by irritating my face too much and thus making it break out. there are places on my face where i diddnt wash much or put on all those gels and whatnot simply because i had long hair that covered parts of my face. well, in those certain areas i noticed that i stayed completely clear here. there is even a distinct line dividing the clear parts of my face and un-clear parts if i pull my hair back (the places where i put medication and the places where i did not). even my forehead (which was also covered by my long hair) has remained almost completely clear for as long as i can remember. i would touch it and not care about it since my hair covered it, but that is the place that it stayed clear. i remember when i diddnt have much acne and only used a small amount of products on my face, but ever since i started using more and more products hoping that they would clear my face, it only made it worse than before. i am scared to put this differen gel that my derm says will act as a protective barrier on my face the keep the acne away because i think it might just irritate my skin and leave me right back where i started. so what does everyone think i should do with my face now, i am thinking that i should just try washing with water becuase i have heard several success stories with this method.

and other thing....i have NEVER had acne on my body and i never cared to wash it with anything but regular soap whenever i took a shower. i do remember though a while back i thought i started getting some body acne so i bought some body acne scrub, and it only made it worse although i never even had acne there to begin with. when i stopped using it, it was gone just like before and that is the only time i can even remember having something even resembling body acne.
