My Acne Story

After taking Accutane in 2018 (5 months at 30mg a day), my skin cleared up and stayed clear for about 2 years. My acne did return, but this time around, it was more manageable. Instead of going on Accutane again, my dermatologist opted for a Rx strength topical regimen, which my skin reacted poorly to. My skin became very dry, which caused more acne than before starting the topical regimen. I tried a number of cleansers and skin care routines that all promised to work miracles.

Here’s the regimen that finally worked - I really love LRP as it's super gentle!
AM:
CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser
La Roche-Posay Double Repair Facial Moisturizer with SPF

PM:
CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser
Blossomasks sheet masks for acne
La Roche-Posay Double Repair Facial Moisturizer

That's great that you found something that works for you! I'm sure it will be really helpful to other people on the forum who are looking for a good skin care routine. I'm particularly interested in the sheet masks you're using--have you noticed any positive changes since you started using them?
