This whole moisturizing thing

I've recently picked up BP again after hearing it'll be another month before my accutane appointment. My skin is generally itchy and irritated even without BP and it's a bit worse now that I'm on BP. It's also beginning to flake (3 days in). I'm wondering if applying a moisturizer will only temporarily relieve the symptoms of BP irritation or if it will, in the long run, actually help with acne and just complexion in general? It seems to be such an integral part of the regimen but is it necessary?

This may very well have been asked before...

Yea, it's an important step. Dry irritated skin can exacerbate the acne, and the Regimen does work best if the moisturizer is used.

It helps to prevent overdryness. Use it from the start.

I'll start moisturizing from this day on.

Can't wait to go on accutane! My acne isn't that bad though, but it's become really crippling for me somehow.
