Hello! Each time I wash my face I attend to get dry in my face. This is ofcourse caused by accutane.

Should I wait like 5-10 minutes till my face dries up - and then moisturize? or should I moisturize RIGHT after I cleanse my face?

Daniel :)

Dry your face gently with a clean towel and moisturize right after while your pores are still open :)

Moisturize right after you wash your face. Be sure to pat dry, and not rub. Warm water helps to soften your skin so the moisturizer is able to penetrate more of your skin. Same goes for your body. Moisturize within a few minutes of getting out of a shower to get the softest skin.

According to Dans regimen you wait 10-15 before applying toner/moisturizer.
