Hey all! I'm about a week into my Accutane course and I'm about to run out of my current SPF lotion. I heard through the grapevine that SPF can actually sting during Accutane treatment since the skin gets so thin and sensitive. Does anyone have a suggestion for an SPF lotion (at least SPF 15) that won't sting and works well while on Accutane? Thanks!!! :dance:

my moisturizer has spf 15 in it (aveeno positively radiant), but i also really like aveeno continuous protection or neutrogena ultra sheer dry touch or something like that. also aveeno makes a sunscreen for baby's skin that is really nice lol

Get the neutrogena spf 85. Its non comodegenic and really thin so it doesn't feel greasy or heavy at all.

I use Coppertone Spf 8. It works great and keeps me from getting burned. Some people get sun sensitivity on the tane, and some don't. I definitely don't. I can be at the lake all day and not get burned.

in response to your spf question i've noticed that using different moisturizers are burning my skin too, I just started accutane Last monday; Sept 29th, i've been using neosporin cream for the itchyness. if you find a good sunscreen that doesn't make you itch or clog your pores i'd appreciate to hear what it is, and to hear how your treatment is going with "the miracle drug" :)good luck with your accutane! i'm also excited about it.
