Yo

I'm currently on 40mg accutane (isotretinoin)

my prescription adapelene differin 0.1% is running out and costs like 80$

I dont want to spend another 80$ for that

My skin isnt dry from the accutane because i use hyaloric acid and moisturiser

Can I just order some retin A or would that be too intense for my skin

I want to use retin a after accutane to keep my clear skin, is it bad to start while im on accutane?

THANKSSSZZZ :)

my doctor advised me to take differin while on acutane which leads me to believe retin a would be fine too. Has anyone tried this??

have you done it before?
No tbh, but I wouldn't do it cuz the risk/reward isn't there.
Accutane already does everything retin A does, so using them together gives no benefit, you will just make your skin even more sensitive/dry

Accutane already increases collagen by around 60%-50%

but applying it after my accutane course would be a good idea? My skin is glowing and Im pretty sure my collagen will drop after a while of no accutane

Yes

After accutane apply it for life tbh, retin A is God's gift to looksmaxers

if youre gonna use retin-a start on a weaker percentage and work your way up, especially while on accutane or straight after

so .025 --> 0.05 --> 0.1 retin a after accutane

DON'T use Retin A while on accutane.

Start using about 2 months after finishing it,
