Bee’s Updated Skincare

Hi Guys!

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

*Dry nose




*Dry mouth

*Cracking or peeling skin

*Dry eyes , eyelids

*Joint pain

*Acnetane is harmful to the fetus and therefore should not be used during pregnancy.

What you should do and shouldn’t do;

You should;

*Drink loads of water

*Keep your skin moisturized

*Use sunblock

You shouldn’t;

*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 timeā€¦
