Hi, I started accutane today and was wondering if I am using the correct skin care products while on Accutane. I bought Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser: For Normal to oily skin, aquaphor for my lips, and cetaphil moisturizing lotion. I am washing my face 2x a day and moisturizing 2x a day also. Is moisturizing twice a day good, or should i only moisturize once? Thanks.

Moisturize as often as you need to. As the course progresses, you might find yourself moisturizing 3 or more times a day. Don't be scared to moisturize while on Tane! Do the aquaphor on your lips even if you don't think you need it so as to possibly stave off the painfully dry lips that some get.

For ME, the side effects were worth it. :)

Good luck.

When do most people get the initial breakout?

for me it was around the second week. It was a really bad breakout, mostly cysts and nodules that were really painful!!!! I had to get Prednisone to calm it down.

The bad breakout last about a month, then only 1 or 2 pimples poped out from no where till now.

Dont be scared, it's different for everybody. You might not even have a bad breakout.

good luck
