** Hello everybody, i was wondering if somebody could help me and everybody else on accutane with red marks, i am currenctly on accutane on my 5th month i am completely clear of pimples but my face is covered in red marks left from the pimples, i was wondering if any of you guys and gals knew some products that are safe to use on my red marks, like scrubs or other corrective treatments? I never knowthere are so many that people have recommended on the boards. My skin is usually pretty tough, not sensitive and never got irritated before my acne and accutane. Is it safe to use products with glycolic acid or salysilic acid, i just dont know and i want to be on the safe side, Thanks !!

i'd say try whatever you want but go slowly and listen to your skin. it'll tell you if it doesnt like it: if it feels bad it probably is bad.

my facialist recommended dermalogica's daily microfoliant, but i havent been using it for long enough to tell you how it works [tho i'd trust my facialist with my life!]. i had to stop after the accutane side effects kicked in because my skin was just too sore and sensitive.

Hi. I'm glad your skin is clear. Today is day 10 for me. I’ve been taken 20mg everyday. I have not tried yet because my skin is still inflamed.

exfoliate with baking soda then APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!

use a 1:8 (vinegar:water) solution first and then gradually increase to 1:1 ..never apply it neat. BALANCED pH = BEAUTIFUL SKIN! wash off after 10 mins. Don’t leave it on.

check online...you might find some people experience with the vinegar.Good luck
