do not use any type of peel/micordermabrasion while on accutane.

your skin is very sensitive and anything could easily damage it.

as far as the dry lips and stuff, i think that varies for everyone. mine have been very manageable and some days i barely need chapstick and others i feel like im applying it all day long.

just make sure you are drinking lots of water....that has helped me.

I am in month 3 and my lips are extremely dry. Just make sure you always have some form of chapstick in your pocket.

For me I've had dry skin since the first week I started (im almost 2 months in). I'd say your skin will be dry for the whole course. Your skin will only get so dry though..it won't get progressively worse until the last day :lol: .
