So my skin is clearing up, but it is drying me out! I am so flaky. What is the best dry skin moisturizer that will not break me out? I am currently using cetaphil.

I'm using La Roche Posay Effaclar H "designed for oily skin made fragile by over-drying skincare" - sounded like exactly what I wanted and I'd highly recommend. It is non comedogenic and for sensitive skin and is tested on acne prone skin. It feels nice on and absorbs well so although I use it at night you could use it during the day too if you wanted. (I use a moisturiser with spf in the day - same brand.)

I'm in the same boat, about to start using Duac and was wondering about a moisturizer to use with it. In the past I've given up on prescription creams and gels because the dryness and redness are way too much to handle.

Cerave is working well for me. Cetaphil made me break out even more.
Spironolactone 50mg, 2x/day
Doxycycline 100mg, 2xday
Retin-A Micro 0.04% nightly

Candex, two pills 2x a day
Vitamin Shoppe Probiotic, two pills 2x/day

Regimen morning & night:
Wash with Nubian African Black Soap
Moisturize with Cerave AM in morning, Cerave cream at night
Apply Bio-Oil to noise/cheeks/chin AM before CeraVe
Apply Retin-A Micro (nightly)
