Post accutane update

Hey everyone,
I have to say, my acne is finally under control and so is the scarring. I was on accutane for 4 and a half months and had to stop because of my liver test was too high. After that I still had some mild breakouts left so I started doing a different regiment. I do not take anything oral but just use this method everyday:

Morning - Skin Medica face wash, toner, tns recovery serum, duac on any existing acne that I might have (one every so often, not for a while though), and then moisturize. All skin medica products except for duac.

Night - Face wash, toner, Plexion face mask (GREAT STUFF, expensive though!), either retin-a micro on acne spots if I have any or Epiquinn Micro, and then Moisturize ... again all skin medica products except for plexion, retin a and epiquinn micro. I use the face mask maybe about 2 -3 times a week and it has worked really well.

My diet has changed as well and I drink a gallon of water a day and run 12 - 15 miles a week. All this has helped out tremendously. Hope this helps some of you.
