Is it better to leave it dry or moisturize?

Ok, so I've been on accutane for about a month. My skin is really dry, but for the most part it isn't so dry that it's uncomfortable. So, I was wondering...is it better to just let it be dry and flakey to make the acne go away or is it better to moisturize it to heal the acne??? thanks!

You must moisturize. It's not too dry now, but you just started. As you go along, your skin can develop really dry patches and it can be very uncomfortable. Your skin thins over time as well, so you want to make sure it's as healthy as possible.

If there's one thing I make sure I absolutely do every day it's moisturize.
