Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.
Isotretinoin or acutret is given to control acne which occurs because of oily skin. Isotretinoin controls the excess oil secretion and therefore stops for once and for all. The dryness is because of acutret only and so is chapping of lips. I am sorry but capsule Vizilac will be of no use. You can use a gel based moisturiser for skin and Vaseline for lips to tackle dryness.

Dear XXXXXXX,

You can use sebamed clear face care gel, as moisturiser and la shield sunscreen for daily use.
Pigmentation can be taken care by few sessions of glycolic acid peeling.
