Gentle Skin Care While On Accutane

I recommend that my patients on Accutane avoid any harsh skin care practices during their treatment course.  The skin is expected to become dry and scaly during Accutane, so I would recommend avoiding a hydroquinone based product during this time as it may further irritate the skin.
