Acutane and Dry Skin

I am only on my second month of taking Acutane. I was just told by my dermatologist not to put anything on my face. My face is red, raw (thanks to the chilly weather as well as the medication), and of course my skin is flaking off. I am sure this is normal, but is there anything anyone has used on their face to make the dryness less noticable and raw?

Any kind of facial moisturizer with spf is good. You may get photosensitive so that's why I mentioned spf. You may still flush or be a little red due to the medication, but moisturizer will definitely help. Aveeno Calming is a good one to combat redness.
