So I need a little help you guys, I've been o ff of accutane for 3 months and my skin was doing really well, and now i'm starting to get some oil back and i'm starting to break out. I also have been using differen gel for the past 2 weeks or so , do you think that has anything to do with it? I need advice from anyone that is willing. so Thank you in advance. And also, what is a really good face mask or face wash for oily skin? Please help me.
Hi harmony6 I bet you don't remember me, but I remember you - you recommended I check out Sublime [Since then I had to have a name change due to board regulations.] I'm sorry to hear that you're not doing so good; although, it's fantastic that you have experienced some success with the accutane. I've just been offering advice to another member concerning excess oil/sebum production. If you check out the short thread "Cure For Oily Skin???", then you'll see my advice about cutting down on refined carbohydrates. It really does make a difference.
In the longer term, you might want to consider taking the course of action that I took, as outlined in the big thread, "Digestive System Cleanse to Eliminate Acne". I wouldn't want to get your hopes up but as I've always said to you, you feel a thousand times more positive about acne if you're doing something to tackle it! In terms of face masks etc., I always make sure to cleanse, tone and moisturise at either end of the day. And twice a week or so I apply a clay-based aloe vera face mask. Ironically, the best I've found is probably one of the cheapest: Superdrug's Aloe Vera Deep Cleansing Facial Treatment Mask. I don't remember if you're from the UK like me or from the US. But I'm sure there are equivalent products in the States.
Anyway, harmony, I know you wouldn't want to be back here in an ideal world, but I hope it's good for you to bump into a familiar boards member
