How long after accutane did your skin go back to normal enough to where you did not have to moisturize all the time?

pretty much within days for me............ after i stopped taking accutane the dryness on my face went away almost immediately. sometimes i put moisturzer on anyway even though i don't really need it because it is the weirdest feeling ever to wash my face and not put any cream or anything on after ;)

Haha, I do the same thing. And yes, it only took a few days for me (but my skin wasn't super-dry to begin with).

every time i wash my face and it drys it looks like someone has gone over it with a scrubbing brush judging by the amount of dry skin and small flakes that suddenly appear all over, even in and around the ears, so annoying. Cant ever shower at the gym any more cos you cant change the height of the shower head, i go home and shower, leaving the face and hair unwashed. trying to wash my hair only every second day to prevent face from drying out all the time.

is the dry skin and flaking normal after geting the face wet?

My skin wasn't really dry on accutane so I can't really say much but I say most side effects or dry skin should mostly probably be resolved within 6 months. And yes I do still use a cleanser to cleanse my face. I use johnson and johnson's top to toe wash.
