accutane and baking soda

Recommended Posts

The title says it all. Is it ok to exfoliate your body with a baking soda every time I take a shower? (I take a full shower every other day now)

I tried it today and my skin felt really clean and is now soooo smooth! I don't have bacne.

I don't use it on my face though... Don't want to dry it out too soon.

I haven't tried it on my body in the shower. But, once in a while. 3 times since being on accutane, I do GENTLY exfoliate my face. It actually stung a little. But then ya, it felt smooth and soft. I just made sure to moisturize alot after. Not something I would do often though. or in the morning as it made the red, redder! I had just gotten fed up with the "flakies" and tried to get some releif from that.

Good Luck with whatever you do.

yep. My body feels normal after showeing. The skin there just has that clean feeling for about 2-3 days. Without accutane, my skin feels forsty because of oil by the end of the day. I actually love this stuff!
