i got 3 shades darker since i dint use proper care while using accutane.

it was winter and i dint use moisturiser for sometime while on accutane.

i will be wrong if i jump in conclusion but what i'm saying is..since accutane is suppose to effect ur sebaceous glands..be careful and use moisturiser IF NEEDED.

IF u feel dry that is.

are u lips dry?

what power of accutane are u taking?

for how long?

what is the weather there like?

cold?

 

but i suggest u please avoid the sun as much as u can.

its not a great thing when on accutane or evn when using topical stuff.

anything topical u r using?

is ur face dry?specially after taking accutane?lips?

 

avoid sun by all means.

 

a low% bha wash is apt for acne prone skin.

but when i was on accutane(it was winter here..i'm from a tropical country) i was given a cleansing lotion for sensitive skin.it was moisturising as well.so u might not need a cream at all.
