im going to be starting accutane after 1month of bactrim to hopefully avoid IB

what products are you using while on accutane, like brand of sunscreen/moisturiser etc?

hey! what's IB?

well I used most of the things that came in the pack with it. The QV wash is great, but i have been primarily using Avene products. They're pricy, but amaizing. I use the Extremely Gentle Cleanser, the Mineral Mist Spray, Skin recovery cream and Rich Hydrating cream - in that order, 2X daily. I haven't found anything better than Lucas' Paw Paw ointment for lips/any dry skin, and Nivea Extreme Moisturiser or something for whole body, it's really moisturising (in a big blue squeezy bottle)!

no worries! definitely look into Avene, i've tried sooo many skin care products and they're definitely the most sensitive. I was using a sunscreen the brand is Sunsense - they have great especially for the face and moisturising, non oily, matte, sunscreens. Check out their range :)
