Well, taking the last pill is traumatic especially if you accutane did the trick for you. I took my last pill over a year ago and I was so nervous, I told my derm that I was terified of my acne coming back and she told me not to worry. I've never used Mary Kay, so I can't say much about that. I can tell you that for maybe 3 or 4 months after being off accutane the pimples that you pic will heal quicker, but after that you are back to square one with the marks taking a longer time to heal, so my advice something that I've had trouble with doing myself is to stop picking. I didn't put anything on my face after accutane for about a year, but now I use differin cream once a week to help control the break outs during my special time. For a moisturizer, I use oil of olay moisturizing lotion for both day and night. The one for the day has an SPF of 15. The one for night is great as well. Many acne sufferers stay away from anything with oil in the title, but Oil of Olay actually doesn't have oil in it. I have actually found that many dermatologist love the oil of olay products and I can tell you that I love them myself. But, I will say this as well if I know that I'm going to be outside for most of the day I prefer Cetaphil with parsol, because I'm african-american if I pic they turn into dark spots and parsol provides better protection than other sun blocking agents. For cleanser, I like cetaphil, glyderm (found at the derms office) and purpose. These are the only cleansers I use or will ever use. I use to like neutrogena, but I don't anymore. Also, Eucerin moisturizing products are good if you like choices. I've never had a problem with any Eucerin product so I feel comfortable throwing that name out. But, different strokes for different folks. Just thought I would give you some options and wish you much happiness and success. Welcome to the world or POST ACCUTANE USERS!
