I've now been on accutane for about a week, and i have noticed my lips are really dry, and i have dry skin on my face, my spots have improved though which is good!
even moisturiser irritates my skin a little so have put almond oil on my face for the past few days although i have to go back to college tomorrow so wont be able to go in with a really oily looking face!
i have been moisturising regularly though and there isn't any dry skin anywhere else other than my face and lips.
i have been getting dry eyes which i have got some eye drops for, they don't feel too bad.
since starting the treatment i have got a few headaches nothing too bad though.
