Vitamin A supplement after Accutane?

While I was on Accutane it really stoped my skin from becoming oily, I could get by with washing my face once a day and even then it was not that oily. However after finishing accutane I notice the oilness coming back slowly.

So I was wondering if supplementing with a slightly higher dose of Vitamin A might help. After all accutane is just a Vitamin A derative, so surely if you can tolerate accutane then wouldn't supplementing with vitamin A be safe?

Thanks in advance for any help

Yes, supplementing A would be safe. However:

1- you can kill yourself if you overdo it

2- Extra vit. A will not do anything for oil production

If your diet is reasonably good, you don't need to supplement.

Logic is right,but I do not think it will be effective like your expectation.

Better option is to use topical retinoids on your face
