I'm trying to figure out my new acne regiment. Because my skin tends to dry out, I have decided to go w/ either of these 2 options.

1)Use a product (Neutrogena Multi-Vitamin) with salicylic acid TWICE a day.
2)Use a product with glycolic acid (Neostrata 8%) ONCE a day.

I'm on Accutane as well, but my goal with these products is to bring the skin back to a more natural look (less redness, and less dryness) and clear up those damn red marks.

P.S. My facial cleanser is Clean & Clear, and moisurizer is Glaxal Base.

I have just learned that salicylic acid should only be put on the hot spots when you have a breakout becaue it dries and irritates skin if you put it all over. A non-alcohol, non-glycol moisturizer can reduce acne flare-ups and than the salicylic acid as a spot treatment only when you get them. This kind of makes sense to me.

This is my skin regimen:

A.M.
ProActiv Deep Cleansing Wash w/ 2% Salicylic Acid
10% Ultra Moisurizing Oil Free - Glycolic Complex (by Cell Renewal Systems)
Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer

P.M.
Cetaphil Cleanser
5% Ultra Moisturizing Oil Free - Glycolic Complex
Neutrogena Moisturizer as needed.

I feel Glycolic Acid has been the most helpful for my problem skin. It does not dry out or irritate my skin. I also find that Glycolic Acid works best when used w/ Salicylic Acid. Not all the time but sometimes.
