In my case, I actually never really experienced dry skin on my face and my skin never got completely clear either. Pretty much every success story I've heard about, the person experienced very, very dry skin, like everywhere, and they also ended accutane with clear skin. Not me! So if I were you, I'd talk to your dermatologist. Is your dermatologist going to increase your dose? Because if they are, then you will experience drier skin and in addition to clear skin when you're done accutane. I wish I talked to my dermatologist because I was one of those people, like you, who never got dry, flaky skin on my face during my course of accutane, and my dermatologist never upped my dose after 3 months either.. I had the same dose until my derm made me stop at the end of month 8.
Accutane certainly got rid of my OILY skin (while I was on it, that is), but it never gave me dry skin on my face. It did, however, give me really dry lips and really dry hands though. The skin on my face was at the perfect balance between dry and oily. It was neither. And like I already said, I never got dry, flaky skin on my face and I never got completely clear skin either.
Is your skin completely clear right now? How are you doing in that sense?
i think im in the same position as you, im dry everywhere else apart from my face although there has been a significant reduction in oil and my face is super tight once its been washed... my jaw line and neck gets pretty dry though... how was your acne after compared to before? i guess my acne has gotten a bit better but not much... i still break out if i eat shit
hey man im on accutane now been on it for 2 months 60mg and my face is not that dry... how dry is your face right now? ,my oil production has definitely reduced but my skin is not like flaking or anything and there is still a little oil a few hours after washing face
