So I am in my third week of the regimen. I was clear for over 2 years after I did accutane but sadly this spring my acne has come back... and since the side effects were so bad (i had hair loss!) I'm hoping to find an alternative to doing a second course. I have definitely been seeing my skin clear up pretty rapidly on the regimen so far but the dryness and flaking is RIDICULOUS.
While I was on accutane I used to mix aquaphor into my moisturizer in addition to jojoba oil when I had really bad dryness. It was literally a LIFE SAVER. I'm wondering if anyone has tried using aquaphor for dryness on the regimen?
Aquaphor is very heavy/greasy so I'm wondering if it might somehow interfere with the effectiveness of the BP or something. But I also feel like as long as I give the BP a good 15-20 minutes to soak in really really well before I apply the aquaphor it probably shouldn't be a problem?
I did a search on this and was shocked that no one else has mentioned aquaphor with the regimen... it is such a miracle for dry skin....
