What products are safe to use while on accutane

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I've noticed that my skin looks a lot more aged while on accutane, and i was wondering if it would be okay to use glycolic acid once in a while. What do you think?? Thanks in advance

Treat your skin gently while on tane. I think it would be a very bad idea to use any of these types of exfolients. Just keep your skin clean and moisturize if needed.

You can use exfolients and peels and any other procedures down the line, after your skin has recovered from your course.

I agree with the above reply.

While you're on Accutane, your skin is the most fragile it will probably EVER BE. You shouldn't use anything on it that might dry it out or irritate it.

Even after you're *off* Accutane, you should treat your sking very carefully, since the effects of the medication will take time to wane.
