Acne is gone and has been..but real dry face

Recommended Posts

I used to have some bad acne, Accutane took care of it so far (Knock on wood) it's been about a year. Anyways, my face started to really dry over the last 2 months and I've been taking two showers a day and washing with cetaphil followed by some aloe moisturizer I like from Vaseline because it doesn't clog me! What can I do to get rid of this dry face?

1. Are you still on Accutane?

If you are, it really dries out your skin.

Either way you need to find a good moisturizer. I use CeraVe Lotion, you may want to use the cream though.

2. How hot are your showers?

If you're using hot water that can definitely dry your skin out, so use warm water instead.

3. Some people on this site (including myself) have found the Cetaphil cleanser to actually be drying. I now use the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser instead.

All CeraVe products can be found on drugstore.com:CeraVe
