Accutane Peeling / Flakes

4 posts in this topic


im on accutane since a month and a week, on 40mg a day, im 140 pounds, never had really bad acne just normal moderate but really persisten, tried everything else. while my face is clearing, i still get some pimples, but my main problem is the flaking.

i use moisturizer with spf for day but never moisturize for night up to date. and only use cleanser at night shower also.

when i shower in the morning, i do nothing to my face really, but i always get some flaking at some spot and even tho i rub it gently with washcloth, it would just create more dead skin, even if i put some little water and moisturizer my whole face after that, 10-15 min later, i got the same flaking / dead skin on the same spots. really annoyin.

is it because i dont use cleanser in the morning ?


edit ; maybe its because i still use little bp on some spot, i just realize those flaking spot are mostly where i put bp.

Always moisturize morning and night, and immediately after you shower.
