Hey everyone, I’ve just started my Roaccutane course. It’s only day 5 and I’m already seeing the common side effects. My skin is peeling and my lips are so dry! Don’t know how I’m going to cope with this for months on end, haha. I think the dermatologist said I’m going to be on a 4 month course. I’m currently taking 3x30mg tablets a day.
I was just wondering, whats the best facial cleanser to use? I’m still using my acne fighting one but I think it’s adding to the dryness of my skin. I read about cetaphil gentle cleanser, but I’m still worried that it wont be strong enough and I’ll still break out during the course of my Roaccutane .
Also, weirdly my skin seems very shiny, I think it’s the moisturisers. Any word of advice on that front? I was prescribe Cetraben but I’m also worried I’ll break out from that too. It’s a very heavy moisturiser, maybe I’ll stick to my oil-free moisturiser in the day, and then pile this on at night haha.
Thanks for reading.
