This is basically a consequence of one of the ways that Isotretinoin works by reducing the natural oils that we secrete so for the dry.
Skin use a water based moisturizer, as often as needed, avoid using thick greasy moisturizers.
However, as it will make acne worse for the dry lips use a lip balm whenever it’s needed now, if you suffer from dry eyes, an artificial teardrop may be useful for this, and you can pick up from any pharmacy.
Generally speaking, I find hypromellose to be quite useful for this, but if you do wear contact lenses, please let your pharmacist know as it may not be suitable.
I also think it’s important to remember that, while you’re taking isotretinoin and for six months afterwards, your skin is going to be a lot more delicate to waxing epilation dermabrasion and laser treatment. So it’s best.

Four headaches and pain knee joints muscles and back now light exercise should be okay.
