My Acne after Accutane

My Acne after Accutane. Wearing no makeup. People didn't believe my acne was bad when I was complaining about it before. Well here's an update. As you can see even after Accutane my acne has come back. Not as bad as it once was but still rather bad. So ugly. wacko.png My derm prescribed me a second round of Accutane today at 40mg. I'm hoping it'll clear ALL of it for good. I'll be adding the Antiperspirant Certain-Dri tonight to my regimen again so my face doesn't get oily. Here's what I've been doing for the last few weeks.


[x] gently cleanse/exfoliate with Biore blemish fighting ice cleanser and washcloth

[x] moisturize with Olay sensitive without spf


[x] gently cleanse/exfoliate

    The acne looks hormonal. Hopefully the second Accutane will keep those areas from breaking out like that. Good luck.

    You guys really made my day, thank you! :( Dru my derm told me it's hormonal so yes, that's why the acne is in those areas. I'm not looking forward to the side effects again but I'm excited to get better results.
