Time for Dry lips and Skin to go away?

Recommended Posts

How long did it take you after finishing accutane for:

1.)The dry lips to go back to normal where you don't have to constantly put chapstick on... or at least where they didn't feel severely chapped without it?

2.)The dry kind of flaky skin to go away and not have to use moisturizer to cover it up?

(I am asking this because I want to be able to go swimming and not have to put on moisturizer after getting out of the pool)

Dry lips - almost immediately. I didnt bother with lip balm about three days after my last dose. They were a bit dry by the end of the day but only a bit. After about a week they were back to normal.

Cant comment on the skin because i moisterise twice a day anyway and never needed to any more than that on my whole course. But i would think its probably about as quick.
