Hope you all are well.
I have recently updated my skincare products and routine.
I am on medication for my skin called Acnetane (isotretinoin) so I needed to change my products.
My skin had a bad rash because of the vitamin A (Acnetane pill) & felt super dry. I normally have oily/combination skin.
Acnetane; is a retinoid used for the treatment of severe acne.
Side effects of Acnetane;
*Dry skin & lips
*Cracking or peeling skin
*Dry eyes , eyelids
*Acnetane is harmful to the fetus and therefore should not be used during pregnancy.
What you should do and shouldn’t do;
*Drink loads of water
*Keep your skin moisturized
*Do not go into the sunlight
*Do not take additional Vitamin A supplements
*Do not use products that contain vitamin A (Retinoid)
*Try to stay away from alcohol
*Do not wax
The products I use for my skin:
I use the Garnier PureActive (oily skin prone to imperfections) face wipes for oily skin, to remove my makeup followed by the Garnier PureActive Micellar cleansing water for oily skin on a cotton pad.
I then wash my face with the Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Oil Control (Blemish prone skin) cleansing gel.
After cleansing my face, I use the Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Oil Control (Blemish prone skin) toner all over my face using a cotton pad.
Last but not least I use the Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Oil Control Adjunctive soothing cream (Blemish prone skin) for medically treated skin.
From the first time I used the Eucerin products I could feel my skin doing much better. It honestly felt soothed and itch free, no more Sahara dry skin. I would recommend Eucerin products for anyone being medically treated for acne and even those that have amazing skin.
Eucerin has a wide range of products for every skin type & they are dermatologically tested. Garnier is dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin. Go check them out.
Until next time…
