Roaccutane(Isotretinoin) - How To Mix Moisturiser And Sunscreen?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am about to begin a course of roaccutane and I was instructed to use moisturiser for the face and lips, artificial eyedrops and a strong sunscreen. However the moisturiser dilutes the sunscreen and what's even worse is that I use chemical sunscreen. I just don't see it happening - as long as the moisturiser holds in water, it will dilute the sunscreen. Can I get away without the moisturiser during the day and only use it at night?

You can apply the chemical sunscreen on your bare skin, let it absorb for 15 mins, and then apply your moisturizer over it (this way it won't affect the potency of the sunscreen).

You should be fine just moisterizing at night. It all depends on how dry you get. Usually sunblock provides enough moister to keep you from drying out too much. I'm 6 weeks in and moisterizing once a day has been fine for me.
