Accutane and the sun

Recommended Posts

I am a month into accutane and I am going to be on it when I go to florida in may. How effective is suntan lotion when you are on accutane. WillI be ok to hang out outside if I wear a high SPF and a lot of it? What do you all think? Any personal experiences? Thanks

Yes it is ok as far as i know. I remember going out in the sun for quite a while without even putting any sun lotion on my face and I just took some tan with no side effects.

But definitely, if you are going out for a long period then put some lotion on your face as a precaution. You would be on the safe side.
