I'm on accutane and my arms are very very very dry. Its weird and it sucks!! My left shoulder is the worst. It's peeling like I have a sunburn.

Does anyone recommend any good body lotions?

I'll move this to Accutane posts. Check out the pinned posts at the top of the Accutane posts forum. You'll find many recommendations for good products. Check out some of the Accutane logs, too, and see what people use for dry skin.

I used Eucerin or Lubriderm, can't remember which as it was umpteen million years ago in the dark ages of acne therapy. Aquaphor is nice and very helpful for nighttime use.

Slather your lips and body daily with your chosen moisturizer, reapply on your lips frequently. Some people like Carmex, some like Dr Dans Cortibalm, I like Burt's Bees, some like plain old petrolatum jelly or Aquaphor for the lips. With Accutane, if you're experiencing powerful drying effects, petrolatum jelly is quite effective (or Aquaphor).
