Cetaphil moisturizing CREAM to put over the aloe vera after it dries to eliminate shininess

Whatever you do, DO NOT USE Cetaphil Moisturizer SPF 15 for sunscreen. It will make your whole face red and make it burn like no tomorrow. Also drink alot of water. Alot of water.

Have your accutane with food that is cooked with/in fat (eg sauteed vegetable, salad with dressing, pasta drizzled with olive oil, and so on). It will increase the absorption of Accutane.

1. Chap Stick

2. Moistuzier

3. Sun Screen

4. Chap Stick

5. Face Wash

6. Chap Stick

7. Oh, and did I mention chap stick?

Seriously, you're going to want to buy a lot of chap stick and leave them around your room, bathroom, locker and through some in your bag. I used to just have one at a time and if I lost it, which I frequently did, you're in for a rough day.

Check out my regimen below. Also, check out the pinned topic "Frequently Asked Questions about Accutane". I'm pretty sure there's a whole list of recommended products and some helpful do's and don'ts. Good luck!

I'm only on day 7, but I'm waiting for the dryness..... so far I've bought:

Cetaphil cleanser

VISINE

dove sensitive skin soap bars

and a CRAP load of different lip chaps!

I also LOVE my neutrogena foaming clenser, so I hope it still works well for me when my face starts to dry out.

I use shiseido purness moisturizing oil-free gel, and plan to get another moisterizer as well.

Hope this helps!

Take accutane with two tablespoons of olive oil. Forget the "high-fat meal." Two tablespoons of olive oil still has less fat than a big meal (without the carbs). It is also much less of a hassle. I also think absorption would be increased since all that is in your stomach is the pill and some olive oil--as opposed to a gut full of food.
