Recommended Posts

wtf is going on. i still have to moisturize my face in the morning. i dont think i'm over washing it. i rinse it with water in the morning when i take my shower and then i wash with dove soap before i go to bed at night.

people that are off tane - what is your regime?

Try using cetephil or another non soap cleanser. I moisturized every day even before accutane, so i won't mind if i have to keep moisturizing after I'm done with accutane.

Same here. Enjoy your dry skin. Do you want your skin to become oily again and break out?? If you have a dry skin, all you need to do is to moisturize. However, when you have a oily skin, there is not much you can do. You should feel fortunate that your skin stays dry.

i have read a lot of forums saying that moisturizing even if you have oily skin is good for you (of course it should be moisturizer that doesn't have oil in it). some people claim that if you keep the skin moisturized that it will help control the oil a little more because your body won't need to produce as much. so if you keep up the moisturizing then maybe that will improve your chances of not relapsing and getting oily skin and acne again...i will be ecstatic if moisturizing is my only problem after ending my accutane course.
