I just started my second course of accutane today. I have modrate acne on my face, and it is worse on my chest and back. I am using cerave hydrating cleanser for my face, but am wondering what to use on my body. I used to use panoxyl pre-accutane, but now must stop since it'll irritate my skin. Should I just use normal soap to wash my body? Or should I use some sort of moisturizing body wash such as Aveeno to wash my body?

E45 do a body wash, it's about £6 a pop but I used it throughout both my courses of Accutane and found it really moisturizing and non-irritating. I even used it on my face as it was very dry. I used the one that comes in a tub with a plunger top. Alternatively you can actually used E45 or Aqueous cream as a shower wash.

I use an aveeno moisturizing wash with lavendar and its really relaxing and nice & does not dry my skin out.
& I also use aveeno's body oatmeal lotion. it is realllllllly awesome, too. and not sticky, it absorbs and then just feels nice.
