Home Facials
Jan 30, 2009
I have had adult cystic acne for about 15 years, taking antibiotics and trying to clear the skin. Finally, I've decided no more and saw a dermatologist. I went on Accutane three days ago.

I'm excited to think the painful nodules will someday be gone. No more cysts.

I'm not used to moisturizing my face a lot and now I need to do that to make up for the dryness. I've purchased some non-clogging moisturizing and begun.

Here's my question: What about the blackheads and the thick, firm nodules that I have now? I realize that new ones will form and I don't know if they will just fade away...

What is the best way to wash the blackheads and whiteheads, pimples, and even the cystic ones without drying my face? Will my body just push them out and I don't have to squeeze them? My face doesn't scar... it really looks amazingly great until you get up close to see all the bumps, or if I point out a nodule that is hidden well with makeup.

Any tips anyone?
