Moisturizing while on Accutane

Recommended Posts

I've been on a generic version of Accutane for a month now, I'm kinda disappointed, but again, I did not expect to see results quickly.

Other info:

Been on 60mg a day for 31 days,

weight; 69 kg


I have a really good moisturizer, I put it on every morning and every night. I haven't gotten a really dry skin, but I wonder if the moisturizer is hindering the Accutane process and progress, because I don't get very dry in my face, and it stills feels like I'm still on my IB.

Should I only use it when I need it, letting my skin get as dry as possible, and then use it only , for example, where a zit is, to hinder any potential scarring.

or just apply moisturizer every single day and night and wait for my doctor to increase my dosage?

(It's a non-condemic moisturizer)

Thanks in advance!

You should be applying moisturizer day and night. Accutane will be drying you out even more in the upcoming months. Keep moisturizing.
