Sun Burn After Accutane

I was wondering if anyone out there can help me. I get off accutane in one month and I was wondering two things. First, will my skin get tan and not burn when i'm in the sun. Second, when will the oils return on my face?

It'd probably be around five months before it gets out of your system so you'd probably burn if you're out in the sun too long. In a few months the oils should come back to your face but probably less then how much oil was on it before since you were taking accutane and it's supposed to make your body produce less oil.

It depends on the person. Some never get a spot again in their life. Others, well it just comes back a couple of weeks later. It's up to the individual. Just make sure to smother sunblock on for a few months, and slowly apply less and less. The moment you start to feel a burn, just use more sunblock.
