Getting a Tan while on Accutane...

Hey everyone,

I am on week 3 of my Accutane trail and I was wondering, I work at a wilderness camp over the summer and I'll be on my last month of Accutane up there. However with the hiking and canoeing will I be able to get a tan?

I NEVER burn. In the past I rarely wore sunscreen because I just never burn, however I do tan really well. Now that I'm on Accutane I will be using Sunscreen, however, will I still be able to tan? Will the Accutane make it so that my pigment wont change etc.? I'm not a pretty boy or anything, but it will look really odd if everyone is really really dark and I'm pale white with a huge gob of lotion on my nose....

By the way, my dosage is: 40mg odd days, 80mg even days.

I tanned when I was on accutane. Still, try to use a little sunscreen - you'll be glad you did years down the line.
