Whats the best Chapstick, lotion, and face moisturizer while on accutane?

Recommended Posts

I just started taking accutane for a week now and so far I have noticed that my lips and the area around my nose and parts of my face are starting to get dry and a little flaky. Its summer, so I've been drinking plenty of water, moisturizing, using sun block, and wearing tons of chapstick.

I normally use any type of chapstick as long as it has an SPF. For my body lotion, i'm just using a scented one from bath and body works, i usually use ammonium lactate lotion (my derm said its okay to use), but I'm out at the moment. And for my facial moisturizer, I was using Garnier's skin renewals anti-sun damage, but I noticed that it makes the area around my nose itchy sometimes. So in place of that, I sometimes use my MAC minerlized facial lotion.

What do you all think is the best chapstick, body lotion, and facial moisturizer?

Oh one more thing, i should have added, I wear contacts sometimes, any suggestions on good eyedrops? I use Optive, which works good, but its expensive.

Thank you!
