Le Orignaux,

Good luck with the accutane. :) I was on 40mg/day for 6 months and it was the best thing I ever did for my skin. Like you, I saw improvements immediately. The blackheads on my nose were starting to come out and it was pretty nasty! To answer your questions about waxing and the sun....I used to get my eyebrows waxed all the time and it definitely made my skin more sensitive. The area would get really red and swollen, yet I'd continue to get waxed (I used to go home right afterwards and put hemmaroid (sp?) cream on it to reduce the swelling...worked great!) As for the sun, I used to slather myself with sunscreen. During month 5 of my treatment, I was in Bermuda and had no problems with sun sensitivity. I'd also recommend somethiing stronger than chapstick...maybe blistex or carmex that comes in a little tub or aquaphor.
