Can You Suggest Some Good Moisturizer, Sunscreen and Foundation for 1 Month Post Accutane.

Good skin care and Accutane
I recommend a good moisturizing soap, like Dove or Cetaphil. These two soaps don't have drying components in them so that helps tremendously. Then apply a good moisturizer to your full body and face while your skin is still damp. For any excessively dry areas you can apply 1% hydrocortisone, available at your pharmacy over the counter, followed by something like Lubriderm is perfect. A good sunscreen contains Avobenzone and Oxybenzone. Neutrogena makes a few that have these ingredients, as well as a few by Person & Covey, but you'll need to order those online. Person & Covey AVO SPF32 is my favorite and I use it everyday. I recommend these simple skin care tips to all of my patients, pre, post, and during Accutane.
