If your taking accutane you must have severe acne right?

You need to cleanse for face in the morning an evening, and cetaphil is garbage -you should be using a lipid and enzymes based cleanser something natural and does not have chemicals or anything that will strip the skin. I don't know what xeroderm is but it sounds harsh. There are dozens of threads on here recommending products and natural oils like rose hip, calendula or jojoba oil for cleaning and moisturising.

Natural is the way to go.

If your prepared to use this medication you should realise the dry skin can in many cases be a permanent and debilitating side effect long after you stop taking it

You could even wash your face with only water if you wanted. Just make sure you are moisturizing. I agree with the above poster that the less chemical filled, the better.


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
