Accutane and dry skin....

Recommended Posts

I'm about to go on Accutane in a week.... and I know Accutane causes terribly dry skin.... but is the the dry, flakey kind of skin? Or is the the dry skin where it feels dry and tight every single time you move your face? ...both? Thanks

For the first four months it is both for me. It starts peeling right after washing and drying face in morning. If I don't put lotion on every couple hours or so it would dry up again. Keep lotion with you at all times.

yeah man it was both for me too but you might just get one or the other. make sure you moisturize twice a day from the very beginning or your face will be a mess
