Hi all,
Can anyone recommend good regime/ cleansers+moisturiser whilst on accutane which I'm due to start next month!
I have been on Dan's regime but using neutrogena visibly clear and olay complete care sensitive SPF 15 jojoba, I've been on the regime for a month with a small improvement. The regime/products +BP have left my skin quite dry, I have mild acne.

Any other accutane tips are welcome :-)

I'd highly recommend La Roche Posay. It's a bit pricey but worth it in my opinion. Their products are made for and tested on sensitive acne prone skin and one of the moisturisers in particular (Effaclar H compensating soothing moisturiser "for oily skin made fragile by over-drying skincare") was actually designed with people on accutane in mind apparently.
