i heard the sun can really hurt your skin during accutane and possibly even after the treatement... does this mean you can't go outside for long periods of time or what?!

Hi -

You need to wear SPF 30 everyday on Tane. If you're gonna be in the sun, like going on vacation, my Derm. said SPF 45 or 60..... As far as afterwards, I hear you should still use a high SPF 30+ but your skin won't be as sun-sensitive as it is on Tane. I read a post somewhere thta someone said they didn't tan as well after Tane. Not sure about that as I don't sun tan. Ask your Derm. for full details though. Self tanner is good too! :)

Good luck.
