I'm 2 days into my 3rd month taking 55mg a day so it's deffo past the point where any flakiness will have occured, also dry lips etc.
I'm using Cetaphil moisturising cream for my face, it is truly amazing. I apply it once on a morning and that lasts me all day.
And for my lips I take Dr Dan's cortibalm which is working wonders. I also only have to apply that once on a morning and it lasts all day. My lips are never ever sore or sting when I smile etc. They do however build up dry skin on them once a week but I simply pull that off. Feels like I'm malting like a snake but still doesn't hurt and they are super smooth to the touch.
Hope that helps!

Also, some of the other things i liked was curel itch defense lotion for my body and honestly vaseline and polysporin lol. I would put vaseline up my nose (yes UP my nose, it was SOOO dry) and also on my lips at night and i'd put polysporin on the sides of my lips cuz they were really cracked.

Im using blistex on my lips and it does help, however im gonna try get Neosporin (thanks to yupmetoo!!!) for my lips now.
I find the Aussie brand fantastic for my hair, doesnt weigh my hair down or leave a residue.
Soap and Glory body scrub gets rid of flaky legs and the moisturiser restores the texture.
And more importantly i use Estee Lauder double wear foundation, make sure face is properly moisturused and it stays on all day )

The face wash is honestly the best I've ever bought. I've had numerous sets of proactiv @ 50 euro a set, I thought it was working but it wasn't. I've had vichy normaderm, didnt do a whole lotta good either.
I use effaclar as my regimen wash, I do two small washes of five seconds each and it practically melts the make-up off yet its so mild on the skin, its really my little miracle, well worth the money, I highly recommend it.

So I wanted to scratch what I said about the vaseliine. I talked to my derm and she told me to stop using it because a patient of hers who did had lung problems later since it is inhaled without you knowing it. You don't feel it when breathing, but it can cause problems in the long run... She told me something else to use instead which is very odd and kind of funny, but she advised putting a little water-based KY jelly up my nose instead and I am going to try it soon!
I have a quick question about products too. I need a good makeup remover. The dial soap and the cetaphil face wash that I have been using do not help at all with this. The makeup kind of "dyes" my dry skin after it comes off for a few days... I'm not wearing makeup much, just when I have to go out in public for extended periods... Any suggestions would be very helpful!

I've never taken accutane but I had a deviated septum fixed before which caused my nose to be extremely dry and bleed and the doctor said to NEVER put vaseline in your nose! It's dangerous! If you're going to use vaseline it can only go about 1cm into the nose. To keep your nose hydrated go buy a saline nasal spray from the drug store and use that throughout the day.
