I've been on Accutane for almost 1 month now and I still shave. In fact, I shaved again today.

Yup, I shave, just I do it a bit less regular, probably every 2/3 days instead of daily (same with washing hair). Just be pretty careful with it all, anything thats harsh, try to avoid.

I shave regularly. Nothing has changed. You just can't wax because you're skin's so fragile, it'll actually rip off and scar. The only thing that I've noticed when I shave is that my legs become more irritated. I should be more gentle when I shave but I'm not. They knick easily and I don't get a real good shave. In all, it's ok to shave, everyday if you must. Just be more gentle.

Shaving is ok but waxing and anything like Nair are a huge no no. You could rip or burn your skin..

Oh boi, i wish i had kind of refused to do it. But couldn't help it. Unfortunately, for the less fortunate females such as i am, i had to have dark hair on my arms and on the sides (close to my ears at the end of my cheeks) so i had to wax. Shaving is a big no no for me, because it makes hair more rough and it comes out faster when it grows out. So i had waxing done during my course of accutane treatment. But luckily however, so far i did not get any scars on those areas in my face. However, i must mention that while i got my arms waxed, my skin was more sensitive and i remained with bruises for weeks, i even got some parts of my skin peeled soo bad, that after almost 2 months you can still see the faint marks of shed skin. But it's very small, and luckily i got tanned this summer, especially around those areas soo it's not visible unless you hold a loop or microscope on top of it. But just be careful for all you recent accutane users. If you can avoid waxing then do so.
