HELP!! Using SA and Doxy

Hi, I've been using Doxycycline for the past few months and I am seeing results. I have been using St. Ives Apricot Scrub Medicated with Salicyclic Acid for the past two years twice a day on my face and I think its killing it. I take hot showers twice a day for 20 minutes at a time. I drink tons of water, I watch my diet carefully.

Can someone please tell me why my skin is so terrible, it is dry and flakey and I am getting acne but just not as frequently. If someone could share their insight I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: HELP!! Using SA and Doxy

You have to MOISTURIZE if itís getting dry from the scrub. They work great but they do cause dryness, and if you donít moisturize, the dryness can cause acne.
