  1. Hello everyone! So if you have not seen, I'm currently on a supplement plan to help my oily skin. However, I just came across OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel and will by buying some online sometime this week. Who has tried it before, and does it actually work? I'm a guy, and if I put it over my moisturizer will it look like I'm wearing make up? Thanks everyone!
  2. Hey everyone! So I believe that I will also be trying OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel too, as I'm trying to order some online. If my supplements are able to help a little internally and this is able to help a little externally, then my face should start looking non-oily all day as if I was on accutane again
  3. Day 8 Sorry I've missed so many days. Between work and going on a vacation for a wedding, my schedule has been all messed up. In this time I unfortunately ate donuts, smoked, ate dairy (pizza and ice cream pies), greasy foods, and chocolate. Plus I didn't have my supplements with me to help so really my results aren't very accurate. I'm home now and will be restarting. However in this time, I received about 4-5 tiny pimples but about half of them went away already. Since I cannot accuratel
  4. Day 3 Alright so now I'm on my third day of this! Nothing major is happening, but I knew I wouldn't since my face was pretty clear from accutane. As for the two spots, they are continuing to flatten, and hopefully the redness will go away soon. Oiliness: 90%-95% Acne: No new ones since starting the plan (and hopefully never) I began looking at jojoba oil if I do not see any more decrease in oil in about a month. Any feedback about that would be great, thanks! And as always, ask anything
  5. Day 2 Hey guys so I'm on day 2 and I actually had a slight supplement change. From now on I will be taking 5,000-6,000 IU of Vitamin D3, and then 2,000 mg of vitamin C. As for my face: It might be the placebo effect, but I feel as if my oiliness went down a tad (if say the amount of oil on my face on day 1 was 100%, today feels as if it's 95%). If I had to give a scientific reason for this, I'd have to say that since my system is so used to the synthetic vitamin A from accutane that I don't
  6. Howdy! So I've been off accutane for a month now and my face is starting to get really oily again. Will oil comes some acne once again, and I want to do everything I can to prevent this. I'm going to college in a month, so my mom won't let me go on accutane again. In other words, I have decided to research countless hours and have decided a regimen that I thought would be good for me. I have been taking zinc and vitamin e the past month, but from what I could tell nothing major has happened. I
  7. Hello everyone! So I've been off of accutane for a month now and my face is starting to get oil again. This of course is giving me anxiety that my acne will come back. For the past month though, I've been doing little things here and there to prevent acne. During this month, I did not get a single pimple. I recently got a tiny one though (you can barely see it) on the side of my mouth, and I believe one is forming on my forehead. That being said, do you have any little secret that I am not doin
  8. Hey everyone, As some of you might know, I'm a month off accutane and my oily skin is coming back so I'm researching more into supplements to help. I currently take zinc and vitamin e, and plan to start vitamin D3 very soon. I was researching some more and found Vitamin B5. Do you recommend it? Thanks! Oh and what was your dosage too!
  9. So I just read through this post and now that it's been 2.5 years, how has this regimen been? Did you stick with it?
  10. Also, Vitamin D3 is one of my top potential things to try next.

  12. Even though it feels great, like I said I hope it stays..
  13. Hey everyone! So it's been quite a while since I've been on here. Well I just took my last accutane pill tonight (5 months) and all I can say is that this has changed my life! My face is not perfect, but I have no problem confidence-wise. I would recommend it to anyone, as the worst side effect I had was probably the occasional back pain (since all of the glands dry up, your back isn't as flexible, so for example lying down caused some discomfort for the first 20 seconds but then went away).
  14. So I just ran out and got the CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion... let's see how this goes!
  15. Has anyone tried CeraVe? I'm thinking about using the Cetaphil Wash with a CeraVe moisturizer.. has anyone tried this?
