I have been taking Doxycycline twice a day, and using Acanya Gel (Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%) in the morning, and Retin-A in the evening, (all three prescribed by my derm) for the last week as a part of my regimen. My skin is "clearing up"...slowly but surely, but now it's dry as a desert, red, flaky, sensitive and scabbing as well. I always wear a sunscreen with at least spf 15, but it doesn't seem to be helping the dryness. Is there a specific moisturizer or maybe a supplement anyone can recommend to prevent any more of this severe drying?

Thank you for your help!

Are you currently using ANY moisturizer?

If not, please go out and get some! I have heard great things about Aquaphor for extreme dryness. I personally use a combination of Cetpahil moisturizing cream and 100% aloe vera gel and it works very well.
