Can you get tan on accutane?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys...

Well my right now I still have some pills left.. but besides that..

I am on a low dose.. are you able to get a tan if you are using accutane? My skin is not awfully dry and I am on a low dosage.. I am not going to the saloon or going to lay out or anything but if I am outdoors do I only need to worry about my face? I am not really that light skinned and never burn on my arms or anything.. perhaps my face occasionalyl but thats a whole nother story..

Low dose or not, sun tanning is not recommended with accutane. Don't go out into the bright sun without high factor sunblock. Don't try to tan while your on accutane. It's better to look pale for a few months than to burn your skin. If you get burned, you increase your chances of skin-cancer...
