Use Cetaphil dry to very dry moisturizing cream. Nothing else has ever worked for me and I've experimented with the regimen for 10 years. 

In Topic: Can You "grow Out" Of Acne?

I first got acne when I was 17, out of nowhere. I had never had a pimple before in my life. I've been on the regimen since 20. I'm now 30. For a lot of us, there is no growing out of acne.

From my experience (10 years on the regimen, living in a cold climate) the only thing that works to mask the flakes is cetaphil dry to very dry moisturizing cream. I know you're not supposed to use a cream but no lotions work for me. I've tried everything you can think of, Dan's moisturizer, Cerave, AHA+, jojoba, neutrogena, etc etc etc and they don't do much to mask the flakes.

I started the regimen when I was 20. I stopped a few times to see if I "outgrew" my acne. I'm now 30 and am still using the regimen. I never thought I'd be 30 and still have acne, but that's life. Consider accutane if you like, it's a viable option. I thought I would have the same problem when I went camping, but remember it doesn't have to be in the bathroom especially if you have a small travel sized portion antibacterial soap...

I note on the do's and dont's list, that Moisturizing creams are a "don't. I use Cetaphil dry to very dry Moisturizing Cream, because every single other moisturizer I have ever used (and I have tried pretty much every single one in my 10 years on the regimen) don't stop me from peeling. EVerything from Cerave, to Dan's jojoba oil to neutrogena moisturizers do nothing to stop my flaky face. How is it possible that people can use that stuff?
