  1. Exercising and using fuller's earth mask twice a week helps me with clogged pores on my forehead. If it gets a bit too much then i use my benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel for 2 days which does the work
  2. I have been to multiple derms for my acne, and have been prescribed benzoyl peroxide frequently, but the common advice that I get is to NOT GO cold turkey with benzoyl peroxide, as it can lead to acne coming back stronger than before. I have always been told to slowly reduce the frequency of use and let your skin adjust to being off benzoyl peroxide. Maybe this is why you're breaking out a lot?
  3. I'd suggest you stick with what your doctor thinks is the best for you. But apart from medication, I can tell you what has helped me. The first thing is exercising. I feel like this helps me a lot in dealing with clogged pores. The second thing is a mask. I use fuller's earth around twice a week, and it also helps clear the skin..not just acne but also any lingering marks. Hope this helps
  4. Feel free to message me if you want someone to talk to
  5. Do you use a sunscreen and a moisturizer daily?
  6. Just keep on using what you were using while on accutane. Your skin is still sensitive so it would be better if you don't try on different products for sometime.
  7. I used a cleanser which is something similar to cetaphil and it worked fine for me.
  8. I have had worse, i got severe cystic acne because of that but then my derm told me to wash it off after just half an hour because it was that strong for my sensitive skin and it worked fine after that.
  9. Hey, well, i finished my course of isotretinoin..so acne is under control more or less if i keep up with my daily routine, but i suffer with pigmentation and acne scars.
  10. Yes that can happen..so when you decide to get off of it, do it slowly, gradually decrease the frequency of usage or else acne can come back even stronger than before.
  11. https://www.amazon.ca/ENZOXID-2-5-BENZOYL-PEROXIDE-TREATMENT/dp/B00D4UDNZM i used this but you can use benzoyl peroxide 2.5% from any brand.
  12. Aczone should work fine, but even after 6-8 weeks you don't see good improvement, you might want to use some other topical like benzoyl peroxide, which is highly effective (atleast for me it was). And if the situation doesn't improve after that, you can always visit a dermatologist.
  13. You can lighten these marks by using something that contains kojic acid or licorice extracts, and also regular usage of a good sunscreen, you can get product suggestions on reddit, a subreddit named skincareaddiction. Good luck!
  14. don't be too harsh on your skin, you can look for creams with ingredients like kojic acid or licorice extracts they help in fading the marks, apart from that use a good sunscreen to prevent them from getting darker.
