hey everyone so i've been on accutane for a few days..obviously no side affects yet. ive been washing my face at night plus a shower during the day. i have very very oily skin through the day but after a wash or shower its very dry so ill use moisturizer which helps a but. sometimes ill put vaseline on very dry spots where moistureizer wont help. will this affect/irritate my skin,(i.e clogging pores) or no, same with aquaphor? thanks!

I use vaseline as well, apparently it does clog pores or something, i havent had a problem and it works a treat for dry areas; it also helps to reduce redness I have found. Maybe if you have oily skin dont crank heaps of it on on a nightly basis like I do.

For some reason alot of people seem to be opposed to using vaseline.

If you check the ingredients in Aquaphor you will see that the number ingredient is petroleum jelly - which is what Vaseline is. My derm said that vaseline is fine. I prefer Jojoba oil though.
