2)Use a product with glycolic acid (Neostrata 8%) ONCE a day.
I'm on Accutane as well, but my goal with these products is to bring the skin back to a more natural look (less redness, and less dryness) and clear up those damn red marks.
P.S. My facial cleanser is Clean & Clear, and moisurizer is Glaxal Base.
This is my skin regimen:
ProActiv Deep Cleansing Wash w/ 2% Salicylic Acid
10% Ultra Moisurizing Oil Free - Glycolic Complex (by Cell Renewal Systems)
Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer
5% Ultra Moisturizing Oil Free - Glycolic Complex
Neutrogena Moisturizer as needed.
I feel Glycolic Acid has been the most helpful for my problem skin. It does not dry out or irritate my skin. I also find that Glycolic Acid works best when used w/ Salicylic Acid. Not all the time but sometimes.
