Im on day 7 of 50mg accutane a day. I'm starting to see my lips drying out and my nose. However it seems that i have even more oil on my face? is this normal? i use oil Absorbing sheets and used one at 1:00pm. I got home at 5:00 and my face looked like i poured 10 bottles of baby oil on it. Yuck..

Is this normal?

Expect that for a good week or more. Possibly a break out as well. It's all the junk and oil coming to the surface. This is a good thing.

You should begin to dry up quickly afterwords and a good oil-free non-irritant facial moisturizer for sensitive skin is strongly recommended.

Vaseline for your lips will also be necessary. I found it was the only thing that worked for me. Chapsticks and lip balms were completely useless.
