I just wanted to provide a quick update on the moisturizer that I’m using. After a few days of using the Cerave moisturizing cream, as of today, I switched to Cetaphil’s moisturizing cream. The reason why? It’s because I found that the Cerave cream didn’t absorb as well as it could have. With my skin flaking, I didn’t necessarily find that it provided the moisture my skin really needed (especially with it being winter too).
So, as of today and after a lot of research, I opted to use Cetaphil’s moisturizing cream. I did this because I’ve used Cetaphil’s products for the first two rounds of Accutane and thought why not give this a try. What I can tell you so far is that the cream is not as dense as the Cerave, but it does have a creamier texture and definitely seems to absorb better. I’ll provide another update on how things go with this change in my next entry.
Before I end this entry, I do want to mention that I’m not the type of person that likes to switch the products up that I use on my face that often. This is because my skin is sensitive to a lot of the products out there that are full poor clogging chemicals and what not. But, since everyone’s skin on their face is different, you really just have to see what works for you. For me, I just like to keep things simple.
