: I know there are a lot of benefits of using products containing Alpha Hydroxy Acid, but have heard it might be too drying to use while on Accutane. Does anyone have any insights?
: Thanks in advance.
I used AHAs while on Accutane but be sure to wear a moisturizer under or over the AHA cream. It can be drying but not if you use a moisturizer as well. Also, be sure to wear sunblock in conjunction with the AHAs because
sunlight+AHAs-sunBLOCK=pre-mature wrinkles! Try Purpose Alpha Hydroxy Moisture Lotion with SPF 15. If you feel that you need more AHA(as I did) then also used Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Cream with 10% AHA. I used both of these products throughout my Accutane treatment and I'm totally clear and off it now..I still use these two products but not as frequently. Good luck!
