Accutane and Paulas Choice?


I have just started a course of Accutane. 1 week in and already experiencing a dry, sensitive and slightly red face (I work outside). The dryness is a new thing for me and like many others have found it was weird getting rid of all of my oil stripping products. I also work as heavy diesel mechanic, so cleaning irritants off my skin is a must.

Someone recommended I give Paulas Choice 'Recovery' products a go; Cleanser, Toner, a Moisturiser (Am and PM) and maybe EXPERIMENT with a 1% BHA? The products are supposedly designed for very dry, sensitive, red skin and people with eczema, rosacea etc.

I am currently on 20mg every other day, upping to 20mg per day after 1 month and my max dose will be 40mg per day once I have adjusted to the drug and we are happy my IB has passed.

Any advice, recommendations or experiences would be much appreciated!
