Hyper pigmentation

hi guys, 

so i have no active acne and haven't for about a months since I started Accutane. However, I have a lot of hyperigmentation and red marks. While on accutane what should I do to help fade those? I know stay out of the sun, moisturizer, drink water but any products people recommend that work well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have the same issue..im almost 4 months done..no acne and still dealing with hyperpigmentation..i use adapalene gel (doesn't cause irritation to me because i have used it even before i started isotretinoin and also the place i live in is very hot and humid so dryness is not a problem here).. You can give it a try..so far its the only thing thats kinda working.. it hasn't completely faded the dark spots but atleast kept them under control..good luck!

thanks for the response! did you find accutane helped fade the marks at all? I am currently using aloe every night but can't tell if it's making a difference. I have heard rose hip oil is also effective but haven't given it a dry yet.

I will check that out too! do you just leave it on like a face mask and then wash it off? if you have been on Accutane, has anyone experienced constant facial red/pinkness. I keep moisturizing but its still pink, and it makes my face and marks look worse than they are. very frustrating

nop..infact..i got new dark spots (probably due to the sun despite wearing sunscreen)..and it just doesn't go away probably because these pills slow down the healing process but i have heard that scars heal much faster once you are done with this medicine...and you should definitely try drinking coconut water daily if you can.. You'll see reduction in spots for sure in like 15-20 days!
