Good And Bad Skincare Products While On Accutane

sadie214

3552 views

My skin was very oily before starting accutane and now it is oily, sensitive, and dry. Here's what I like and don't like

Products I like:

Cetaphil moisturizing cream for dry sensitive skin- great to put on dry patches. Very thick

Cetaphil lotion for dry sensitive- put on underneath moisturizing cream all over face. Lightweight but can be greasy sometimes

Cetaphil oily skin cleanser- use at night. Removes makeup, cleanses skin. Smells nice. Can be a little tightening though

Aveeno daily moisturizer- great for under makeup. Lightweight yet hydrating. Not greasy. Makes skin feel plump, smooth, and refreshed

Epiduo- use as spot treatment. Dries up pimples. Can be irritating though

Neutrogena deep clean oil control cleanser- I sometimes use as a mask to help with oil

Cerave nighttime moisturizer- lightweight so I use it in the morning under makeup. Great for nighttime if you're not too dry. Hydrating, not greasy

Products I don't like:

Michael Todd normal/combination moisturizer- very irritating. Made my skin red and itchy

Lush grease lightening spot treatment- broke me out a lot. Spot treatments should not do that

I haven't found a good exfoliator, mask, or lip product yet.

Hope this helps! Leave questions below

Great info sadie214. Your list has helped me tremendously. I started my Accutane (absorica) treatment March 6th. I am on 40mg twice a day and it took no time for the dryness to occur with me.

Good luck on you continued journey!

Thank you, same to you!!
