  1. http://www.drugstore...pf-15/qxp139645 The only thing that really helps for red skin from Accutane. It's like a green make up (making you look less red) + moisturizer + SPF mixed together. I've been using it since first weeks (I'm on 0.5mg/kg dose, 8 months in, 1 month left) and it reduced the redness, but it's still there. You won't get rid of it until you get off Acutane. Regarding moisturizers, you'll have to experiment with them and find the one that works for your skin. Cetaphil/Neutrog
  2. Try not using the Neutrogena face wash for a few weeks and see if it gets better.
  3. What week are you in? First week my face burned like hell (it was during the IB), then it went normal.
  4. 1. 0.5 mg/kg mild-moderate acne IB: first 2 weeks. Good luck with your treatment.
  5. I also get the upper lips sweating. Didn't happen before I started accutane treatment.
  6. Would it be effective to use something like this? http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/B000P1S0N8 And if I did use it, would I apply it on top of a moisturizer? Thanks You can use it on top of a moisturizer or mix it with it and apply it together. You'll have to find out what works best for you. The product itself is a moisturiser with green pigments. It also has some calming ingredients and the product description says the redness should be reduced in 3-4 weeks. It did for me. Not ashamed of my red fac
  7. Eucerin Anti-Rose Use this. Someone on the forums suggested it to me and it works pretty well. You won't get to your natural skin color but at least you won't be as red as pepper. Even though it's a daily cream I put it on in the evening on a cleansed face and don't wash it off for 2-3 days. Try it, it's worth the money.
  8. I got drunk waaay too much (maybe 0,5L of vodka each party) like 2-3 times during the last month and my liver levels were raised last time I had my blood checked. I was also trying to gain weight so I didn't eat very healthy and my cholesterol levels were also raised so I kind of panicked cause the doctor said I'd have to stop my treatment if the levels would be still high. Btw I'm clear since week 2 and I'm enjoying it as you can see
  9. Yes it's normal. I got completely clear in 2 weeks. I'm at day 52 and I'm still clear (I've only had like 3 small pimples). 0.5mg/kg
  10. Well, my acne was like yours and I'm almost clear at day 17 (0.5 mg/kg), but I think I'm just one of the few people that got lucky. Most of the people here clear at month 2-3. Don't worry, it\ll get better. Btw, I think you're hot.
  11. I don't think you'll go through initial breakout if you skip Differin for one week. Sure, some pimples could appear, but I doubt you'll get another IB if you've ealready had it before. It's not like you're starting all over again if you skip one week.
