I had struggled with acne in my teens and early twenties like most of us do. I also had extremely oily skin. One dermatologist told me I had the oiliest skin he had ever seen. Another recommended washing my face with Zest deodorant soap to combat the excessive oil. Another had me sit under a sunlamp weekly and told me that having oily skin was a blessing because it would slow down the aging of my skin. Like I cared at that point! I just wanted it gone! I tried every antibiotic and topical cream known to man, but my stubborn acne and oil would not go away! Enter the wonder drug, Accutane! It transformed my skin and cured my acne in six months. It would reappear in my forties, this time as hormonal and stress acne, and once again, Accutane came to my rescue.
