Hi, Good luck with the accutane. As for tips, moisturiser - i use Neutrogena simply clear as its oil free, but sometimes i need something better so i use aqueous cream. Lip balm, i bought every lip balm in Boots, but i find the best one is Vaseline - i use the aloe vera one indoors and the one with SPF when i'm outside. Hope that helps.

That's a good point about the vaseline, maybe try regular lypsyl that worked ok for me too and it won't leave your lips all shiny. With the moisturiser i tend to use the aqueous one at night and let it sink in, and the oil free one during the day under make up, but i'm assuming you won't have that problem, haha.

I was on antibiotics for years before i was even referred to a derm. Been on roaccutane for about three months now, just a couple of annoying cysts that don't seem to want to go. But good luck with it. Any more questions just ask, or PM me.
