Moisturising Question?

obviously while on accutane your moisturise many times a day, just wondering do you guys always rinse your face before reapplying or just apply it right on over the previous application, i ask this because i've been rinsing and thats been making my face much more drier then it already is but im also scared constant reapplying will break me out ? any advice

I've been re-applying right over (oil free moisturizer) unless I've been doing something that really makes me need to wash, for example, working out. I still usually wash 3 times a day out of sheer habit, I feel dirty if I don't since I used to wash much more frequently than that, but aside from working out, I'm trying to ween down to 2x a day :)

sounds good, i was thinking of just washing with cleanser twice a day, day and night instead of about 6-7 times a day just so i can moisturise, thanks for the tip

Definitely don't wash your face that much. Ouch. I'm naughty and I only wash my face once a day when I take a shower :P Before Accutane I washed twice a day.

Maybe you need a better moisturizer. I use CerVe moisturizing cream and I only have to apply it once-twice a day. It is really thick. I just have a couple spots that get a little drier than the rest so I reapply in those areas maybe once. Doesn't make you break out either. It has been the best stuff I've ever tried.

If your moisturizer is non comedogenic then you won't break out. Make sure it says that too. I was using Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizer and it made me break out like crazy.

I am in the US so I have no clue. You can most likely get it online I think. I got it online because I'm a goober who can't locate things in stores. Walmart.com had it and so did Amazon.
