One more month left of accutane for me. Looking better than when I started, but still a bunch of red marks that I was told probably won't clear till the post-tane period. So as I wind down the treatment, I'm wondering....how long after I'm done till my skin goes back to normal?? You know - no more dryness. I really hate moisterzing like crazy every day and am really getting sick of sneaking off to the bathroom to put some more on during the day.

How long till side effects die down?

Dryness gradually gets better. Two-three weeks post-tane I guess the dryness won't be a big issue anymore. But sun-sensitiveness, slowed healing of the skin etc will probably take longer, several months.
