how often to wash face while on accutane?

wash once a day with a mild soap like dove?

My derm said twice a day w/ something mild would be fine. She suggested Cetaphil. Whatever you choose to use make sure it is something mild- free of perfumes and all kinds of other junk that you don't need.

2x a day MAX. your face needs time to heal and washing it actually irritates it slightly. and id def recomend getting cetaphil gentle cleanser. it doesnt seem like it does a lot, but thats exactly what you need on accutane and after it.

I use Neutrogena Acne-Prone Skin bar soap. I like it a lot because its gentle and leaves your skin feeling very clean. It also lathers very well. It is recommended by dermatologists.
