Already-Dry Skin & Accutane?

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys! I recently got prescribed to Accutane (2 weeks into the pre-accutane birth control month now), and I've been wondering about something...

I know that Accutane always causes your skin to become super dry, and your lips also. Well, I ALREADY have dry skin and I'm wondering exactly how it will affect me. My dermatologist said that it will simply get drier just like someone who had oily skin on Accutane would. But I want to hear from actual people who have taken Accutane and have naturally dry skin like me.

Of course, I've tried to google this- and of course all that pops up are things about how Accutane makes your skin dry as a side effect.

So, how did it affect you? Did you normally dry skin become so dry it was unbearable? Did Accutane work for you? What did you use to help ease the dryness? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm kind of concerned about this!
