I’ve been taking the acne drug Roaccutane for about 5 months now.
It is definitely working – a little slower than I expected – but it does cause extreme dryness.
I have tried countless products to alleviate the dryness & these are my ultimate saviours.
E45 bath oil is so soothing & E45 lotion is easily absorbed into the skin – both are very budget friendly – you want to be generous with application so this is important.
Embryollise is a cult product amongst make up artists & it’s soothing, easily absorbed texture is perfect for sensitive dry skin. I use this in the morning & at night I use it with a few drops of Trilogy rosehip oil added for extra moisture & a vitamin boost.
Dr Lipp is by far the best lip balm I have found – dry cracked lips has been the most irritating side effect and this is the only lip balm which keeps working past the ten minute mark.
Egyptian Magic Balm is another cult product that has several uses. I use it as a mask on the nights that my skin feels even drier than usual.
