Acne-prone, dry, sensitive skin after Accutane

Question: Hi I’ve tried everything under the sun for my acne, I was previously on acutane which cleared my skin but 6 months later I started getting some acne again. It’s not nearly as bad as it was before acutane, but acutane has left my skin on the dryer side which is making it hard to find products to treat what little acne I have coming back without over doing it for my dry and sensitive skin. So could you please recommend me something?
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the brand Dermalogica. Step 1) UltraCalming Cleanser / follow with their Multi-Active CleanserStep 2) UltraCalming Serum ConcentrateStep 3)UltraCalming Barrier RepairPM Cleanse and tone follow with their AGE Smart Overnight Repair SerumI would recommend this mask to apply on areas or just as a spot treatment to help with your breakouts. Their Charcoal Rescue MasqueAll of these products will help benefit your skin. You really need to rebuild your skin barrier right now as its been compromised from using Accutane. I hope this helps—have a nice day! Cyndee, Dermstore Esthetician
