Post Accutane Skincare

I've had a very positive experience from taking isotretinoin -although i only stopped taking it 3 months ago, I'm hoping the spots won't come back. My skin has completely cleared up and any side effects from the medication have also gone. I have combination skin and am using nothing except the Nivea oil free moisturiser as I didn't want to spend money on products until my skin has settled back to normal.
I just am confused about what products I should use to maintain my clear skin. The dermatologist said don't use anything with oil in it which eliminates mostly every product! my skin was never really oily as i used to get cystic acne and not the usual acne that most people get. ( I had adult acne for over 15 years and the only thing that's worked is this medicine!)
Is there any skincare routine anyone can recommend....moisturisers, face washes, facials etc. I'm just concerned that I should be doing something special to look after my skin after all that it's been through.
