I feel ya Llouis. I was on accutane for 6months. I tried everything, but nothing seemed to work, but then I regret using anything bcuz even though I had acne my skin was better before I got on that crap clinque or proactive, but then later I decided to try accutane. I started off taking 40mg a day, then 80 mg a day, and 120 mg a day on my final days of accutane. I finished Accutane back in July 31 2009 and today is the 20th of october 2009 and nearly a complete 3 months and I still have the side effects of redness and visible scarring on my face. My body is perfect skin, but my face or around my checks and my chin is where the redness is. I've tried a lot of different products such as Aveeno. Aveeno is probably the only that I feel comfortable with at the moment and I use a sun light sheer tint moisturize its a little light, but close to my skin tone, but I wear the ultra calming spf 30 underneath it. At this point my life is kewl, but I get so jealous of other people. I wish I could get tan on my face, but I am afraid it may damage my skin. My face looks so light and my body has a nice golden tan it annoys me. I've been thinking of doing laser and I don't know where to go for that around Ventura County, but yeah. In the mean time I plan on researching other remedies like fish oil pills either I'll take them orally or put the liquided on the scar areas and use green tea moisturizer and I think I have an awesome diet I eat very healthy. And I read excersing help so I might do soccer or swimming, but the chlorine freaks me out. Wish you the best of luck.
