Post Permanently dry skin- accutane

Does anyone know of people who have been left with permanently dry skin from accutane? [email protected] been of it 4 weeks and have no acne but my skin is extremely dry still, I guess due to its unpredictability it's possible that in some people it permanently shuts down their oil glans beyond repair.

my skin has been so weird since I went off Accutane about a year and half ago. My face is the oilest its ever been, yet I have you put on moisturizer after I get out of the shower or my skin will be a little flaky. Accutane can be an ok drug for acne, but it really does screw with your body and gave me scars. I hope this Smoothbeam laser starts to become more mainstream.

Well last week for example my skin was absolutely fine and moist, but now when I was it if I dont use moisturiser it gets flaky and horrible. Why does everything have to be so complicated...... Christ I sounded like Avril Lavigne there, it gets worse eh.....
