Acne after Accutane

Q I finished taking the claravis regimen about April 2017. When I did, my skin was beautiful and clear and this lasted until summer 2018 when I started noticing small sporadic breakouts. Just before Christmas, I starting getting terrible cystic acne along my jaw line and the sides of my face. I started using differing gel and benzoyl peroxide but my breakouts have only gotten worse. The marks have also scarred (not indented) which never happened prior. I am really confused as to what products I need now because my skin is no longer oily but also not really dry. Its more like oil sits on my face than having oily skin. My skin is sensitive despite not be sensitive prior to this and even makeup remover wipes can burn at times. Oil free products aren't very moisturizing and those that I used during my accurate regimen that are sensitive and moisturizing I find are leading to more acne. Its like a vicious cycle and yes, I have a high stress life. What products can I use to help combat this?

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the Eminence brand, I would start off with their Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser, I would follow with theirStone Crop Hydrating Mist.I would recommend their Citrus Exfoliating Wash to use once or twice a week to help exfoliate your dry skin. Follow with their Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate. Finish with the Clear Skin Probatic Moisturizer .You might want to use their Clear Skin Probatic Masque once or twice a week or to use as a spot treatment .
