Hi, im starting accutane in a couple of days :D (60mg a day) and was wondering what should i start using on my skin? i use just a simple vitamin E face wash and have been using Benzoyl peroxide for the last 5/6 months, should i carry on using the benzoyl for a few days or completely stop? any advice would be appreciated!

oh and can anyone reccomend any good moisturisers/washes etc.

You can probably keep using the BP for a little while if you think it helps, but stop after you start noticing irritation/dryness (Accutane is probably gonna dry you out more than 100% BP ;))

Here's a thread I posted in another forum about moisturizers: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php?showtopic=108558 You can also read some of the other logs, where people list what they've used.

Good luck, I'm starting around the same time as you too :)
