Hey all. I just started my Accutane treatment today. I was wondering what kind of products everyone uses and what you would recommend? So far, I am armed with Aquaphor for my lips, Cetaphil facial lotion (with SPF), jojoba oil once the dryness starts, and am taking vitamin E and C and also flax seed oil. I am still not sure what to do for a cleanser. I was thinking that Noxzema sensitive would be great if I could find it anywhere! I used it as a teenager and it was super gentle while moisturizing.
Are there any products that have absolutely been your savior? Or any tips in general? My derm. actually said that it would be ok to spot treat! I couldn’t believe it. While I am using a dab of bp on pimples right now, I just read on another board where an esthetician recommended that Accutane users spot treat with a mix of aloe vera gel, tea tree oil, and lavender oil. I am wondering what concentrations should be used, will probably look into that.
All replies appreciated! :mrgreen
