Am I Washing My Face Too Much?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Tomorrow is my third week of accutane and it's going quite good.

I worry a bit if I wash my face too much. I wash my face with a cleanser at morning and night and then putting my moisturizer on.

Is this too much? I usually take a shower.

Sometimes when I do my workout, I also take a shower. So maybe I should drop the washing before bed at these days? Feel like its too much on my skin. I notice that my skin is a bit red sometimes aswell.

And another question - should I wait until my skin dries out before I put on my moisturizer? Or should I just do it right away?

Regards,

Daniel

I've washed twice a day since day one. first month or so used cleanser but found it unneccesary.

Now I'm still washing morning and night but cold water and around 5-10 seconds max. I sometimes like to let it air dry and just browse internet with ipad in the bathroom but other times tap it dry with a towel, don't know if it makes any difference.
