Can I use my other skin care products (such as acne washes, masks, serums, toners) with my treatment plan?
Unless a product type is specifically recommended by your dermatologist in your treatment plan, you should avoid using it. While these skincare products may provide incremental benefits for your skin, they can also cause unnecessary irritation. Your prescription medications are much more important and effective. Once you are tolerating your prescription medications easily and your breakouts are under control, you can slowly add your other skincare products back into your routine if you like.
