I always use a face wash to wash my face, night and morning – it removes make up, dirt, sweat etc from the day better than plain water, and it’s good at keeping imperfections and blemishes away.
On roaccutane I’ve been using another La Roche Posay Effaclar H product, and this time it’s their ‘hydrating cleansing cream’ (£9.50 on Feel Unique), which is great because its creamy texture doesn’t dry out my skin at all (and works well with the Efflaclar H moisturiser).
I also exfoliate every now and again – it keeps dry patches away and makes it easier to put make up on because your skin is a bit smoother, and it also makes you a bit more radiant!! No need to go crazy on the highlighter!!
My favourite exfoliator is the St. Ives ‘Nourish & Smooth‘ Oatmeal Scrub – I think it’s a new one and it’s much more gentle than their famous apricot scrub, so it’s perfect for sensitive roaccutane skin! Smells nice too and only a fiver in Boots.
I use it maybe two or three times a week minimum, often before I put make up on for a night out. It’s nice as a mask when you’re relaxing in the bath too 🙂
