Do you exfoliate while on Accutane? And if so, what do you use that doesn't cause irritation, and furthermore, does it help? I'm getting dry and scaly in spots and really am feeling the need to slough it off!

Any suggestions!?!

Thx

Accutane makes the skin shed more anyway so I doubt exfoliating is necessary. If you're getting dry and scaley then you require moisturiser/emollient, not exfoliator.

I know what you mean about wanting to exfoliate... I frequently get build up of dry skin that is simply not shedding fast enough, which if left to its own course causes me to breakout again.

I've resisted to use and heavy duty exfoliate just a very light scrubbing cleanser.

DO NOT OVER DO IT WITH ANY TYPE OF EXFOLIATING, YOU WILL RIP OF YOUR SKIN.
