  1. So interested in this regimen but I just got off Accutane 3 months ago and my skin is way to sensitive and dry to do this right now. (obviously Accutane didnt work for me hence why I want to try this regimen lol) But my derm just prescribed me Epiduo but she said only to use it every other night. But I also have a clarisonic and I will be buying the deep pore brush head!

    Accutane Day 12

    Mine got worse quite a few times then it would get worse and clear up again, but I wasn't totally clear until the 6th or 7th month. And the CeraVe cream works much better than the lotion from my experience. Many times I also just slather Aquaphor all over my face cause the dryness got that bad! But defiantly use Aquaphor on your lips! Its amazing! Good luck!

    Day Of My Dermatologist Appointment!

    The trick is to stick with the products! Even if you think they aren't working or your acne is getting worse just keep using them! You wont really know the results for awhile because they tend not work for a few months! Good luck!

    3 Months After Accutane

    So its been about 3 months since I've been off Acuutane, and the whole time I've been breaking out. So I made an appointment with my derm and she basically told me that the brand of Accutane I used (Claravis) does not work in many cases because it doesn't absorb into the body. So she told I could go on it again in another 9 months but for now she put me on Epiduo and told me to take probiotics and not to eat anything with Dairy, wheat, gluten, peanuts, soy, sugars. Which I think is insane and impossible for me to do, but I've defiantly tried to cut back quite a bit on those types of food. Also I will be getting my hormones tested because I think that also might be a cause of my breakouts.

    9 Days Post Accutane.

    It's only been 9 days since I stopped Accutane and I'm already breaking out! I have very small white dots on the surface of my skin but in my cheeks I see clusters of cysts! I also noticed the pores in my cheeks have as enlarged.

    Week 1

    Lol the worst is when your skin starts peeling during school! It's so bad! And no one ever told me! Advice ahead of time don't wear makeup! It will start peeling off during the day and looking really gross! And carry a little mirror around! I'm so glad I finished before I went back to school! Good luck

    Introduction

    Honestly if you feel like the minocycline isn't working you should probably go off of it just because antibiotics can have some bad side effects to them too ( although dermatologists never tell you) http://www.drugs.com/sfx/minocycline-side-effects.html There's a huge list of them and I didn't realize but when I was on them I had such bad stomach problems and no matter how many times I went to the hospital for terrible pain they could never find anything! But since getting off them I feel so much better but my stomachs not 100% and antibiotics never helped me abyway! I was on them for year and now I just finished accutane and finally have clear skin. I also had a ton of those little white bumps you mentioned and nothing ever cleared them up! I think I had little success with them using the loreàl Paris face wash that came with the scrubber I. The orange bottle and not wearing any makeup! Lol I literally tried everything! Good luck! I hope you have clear skin soon!

    Day 13- Itchy Scalp And Corners Of Mouth Hurting!

    Tea tree oil is used for absorbing access oils so its probably not the best thing to do for your hair. Loreàl Paris has a good sulfate free line for dry hair and I love it! Here's a link: http://www.lorealparisusa.com/en/Products/Hair/Hair-Care.aspx?brand=EverCrème I don't know about the jojoba oil, I've never tried it. I personally used the Peter Thomas Roth viz 1000 hydration serum and any moisturizer and that did wonders for my dryness. I also used Aquaphor on my lips. I use the regular one (not the one made for your lips) and I put it very thickly all over my lips and around it. I apply it very heavily on the corners of my lips and then I make sure I sleep on my back that way none of it rubs off. It's not really the most comfortable or prettiest looking thing but its what I had to do. Also you need to do it because the corners hurt that most likely means they will eventually crack which is not pretty at all and hurts a lot! I think mine cracked twice! Also my favorite Chapstick to use is the Blistex medicated one in either the blue or red packaging. It has SPF 15 or 20 in it, but I felt it was the most effective at keeping my lips moisturized during the day. Good luck!

    This Is Major!

    Happy Birthday! Do glad to her you have clear skin! That's one of the best feelings in the world from us acne sufferers!
  10. Try Spironolactone its for hormonal acne but I think it might work. My aunt was on 3 course of Accutane and it did nothing for her but when she went on Spironolactone it cleared her right up.
  11. Just wondering what your using now that your done. My derm gave me no advice at all!

    Done With Accutane...now What?

    Just ended too and I have no clue what to do. My skins still super dry so I'm moisturizing and using a gentle face wash. My derm just said to come back if theres any breakouts that don't clear up. So I have no clue what to do. Today I bought a face wash from Clearasil called Daily Clear Refreshing SuperFruit Wash. It only has 1% Salicylic Acid so I think it will be gentle enough for me to use once a day. Hopefully theres more replies. I wish y derm would have told me more.

    Accutane And Irregular Periods?

    Accutane actually regulated my periods in the last few months of my course, before that my periods were always irregular and the flow was super heavy. On Accutane my periods eventually became regular and were very light. One month I even had my period come twice.

    3 Days Post Accutane

    Hey everyone! I know I'm only been off Accutane for three days but I can already feel an improvement in dryness with my lips. I now can go with applying chapstick only about 3-4 times a day and not every 15 minutes! Also today I decided to buy a acne wash just as a preventive measure, so that hopefully my acne wont return. I'm still super paranoid! So I bought the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash with 1% Salicylic Acid. I figured that this was more on the gentle side of acne washes but I'm not really sure as I haven't used a acne wash that doesn't need a prescription in about 5 years! So I have tried every brand before and I'm not a big fan of Neutrogena at all! And I remember having little success with Clearasil and Acne Free before. Also eventually I will buy a scrub and probably start exfoliating once or twice a week but that wont be until I notice my skin starts moisturizing a little on its own. I still have some that are under the skin and have been there for maybe a month that just wont go away! Another thing I'm noticing is that my legs really hurt and I'm getting frequent headaches. Does anyone know if this might be from stopping Accutane? Thanks guys! I hope you guys are doing well with your treatments or enjoying clear skin!
