BEST moisturizers/face creams while on Accutane


I have recently begun my second course of Accutane. During the first round, I was harsh with my skin, and I continued to use topical acne cremes, scrubs, etc.

This time, I want to do it right. I want to be gentle with my skin, and help it to heal and even out my skin tone.

I need some recommendations for products to use.

I want to make sure that whatever I use, I want it to be gentle and help my skin to heal.

I was looking at some oils to use...any recommendations?

I also want something that will help with the dry skin.

Any advice is appreciated!

hey novalie,

just wondering did you buy yours online? Because i know you were talking about it... if you did please get blood tests every month or two. I wouldn't recommend anything besides using a gentle cleanser such as cetaphil, and a moisturizer while ur sleeping. Get some aquaphor or carmex or something to keep your lips from cracking also. Good luck!

I just use Cetaphil gentle cleanser for wash and the cetaphil in the green bottle for moisturizer. I also use 100% pure Aloe Vera on everyday.

I use Dove for sensitive skin to wash my makeup off at night, and Spectro Jel in the morning. For moisturizer I use Olay Total Effects both day and night.. that's pretty much it!
