I began accutane during a minor breakout around my chin area. I had to deal with that for the first week or so until it cleared. By then, I had relatively clear skin and I was SOOOO happy because I thought that the drug was working perfectly. Unfortunately, not everything could end up as we wish and soooo - I broke out again at the end of my third week. It was right when I started second semester of college aka worst time ever to breakout. Since then, it's been toning down a bit. The breakouts are pretty much the same as before accutane although I noticed they're a bit more painful and dry out more easily. 

I've been washing my face and taking showers as usual (1-2 times a day). Although, I DO NOT use any facial cleanser. I was told that those dry out skin and it will just make the side effects worse.
