Duac And Moisturizer

4 posts in this topic

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.
