Accutane

Question: Hello, I have just started day 2 of my Accutane treatment. I’m wondering if you can suggest both skincare and makeup products for me to use while I undergo this treatment for the next 5 month. I’m a big fan and own many SkinCeuticals products. But I’d appreciate your guidance on which are the most gentle and effective for my skin as it will become tender and dry. Also, which foundation would you recommend? Many thanks, Jessica
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend that you work with a nice gentle hydrating brand. Avene will be a great way to help with your skin care. I have put together a regimen for you: Step 1) Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion follow with their Gentle Toning LotionStep 2) Hydrance Intense Rehydrating SerumStep 3) Hydrance Light Hydrating CreamStep 4) Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50PM ) You can do the same regimen for night minus the sunscreen. If you felt like you needed more hydration this line has many wonderful options for you. All of these products are designed to help alleviate your dryness and nourish your skin.For your foundation I would recommend the brand Oxygenetx their, Oxygenating Foundation Acne Control. I hope this helps, have a nice day! Cyndee, Dermstore Esthetician
