    Not Washing on Accutane. . .

    Since acne isnt cause by dirt and is mostly caused by what goes on inside of us, u think it matters if we wash or not while on accutane? Like just shower twice a day and use water and maybe wash with a gentle cleanser 2 times a week or so?
    I started doing this the other day because i thought to myself why interfere with this drug? And none of the over the counter washes ever helped in the past all that much , so whats the difference?Anyone do this while on accutane??

    Re: Not Washing on Accutane. . .

    Im wondering the same thing. I'm on my 5th day of accutane and was wondering if just rinsing my face with water would be better, later on in my treatment im sure the accutane will dry my face out and a cleanser would probably dry it out more.

    When I'm on Accutane, I don't bother using soap. Just use water. Your skin will be less dry that way. Plus, your acne will be gone anyway, so you don't have to wash to gain the benefits of washing.
