Reviving sebum glands?

I was wondering, once off accutane, is there anything you can do to encourage the glands to start producing more sebum like before? I want to know so I know what I should stay away from (I'll be off tane in two months). I want to put rosehip oil all over my redmarks, but I'm afraid oily skin will only encourage sebum glands to start producing more sebum. What do you guys think?

A few months after I came off Accutane I put some Retin-A .1% on my face, just for old times sake. It started the oil works right up, so I quit using it and I went back to normal.

So there's that.
