It's been a year since I started accutane, and 6 months since I've been off.
The ONLY regimen I have now is: Neutragena Acne Wash, Retin-a 0.025% (for maintenance).
The redness is due to the heat of the bar, and the alchohol I consumed Normally my skin is flawless.
The retin-a is fantastic. Every week my skin becomes smoother and more even-toned. At this rate, I'll have porcelain, baby-esque skin in a matter of weeks.
Considering that a year ago I had terrible, cystic acne, there is nothing that makes me more overjoyed than having nice skin. Going on accutane was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
