I've always been scared of moisturizers breaking me out. Haha. I am on accutane as well and I'm just going to let my skin be dry. The purpose of the drug is to dry you out. So I'm just going to let it do it's thing.

That can cause more damage to your skin....Moisturizing is a MUST.

But back on topic, I use Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing Lotion as a body moisturizer and Cetaphil on my face and it works fine.

The Neutrogena Oil free SPF-15 made me break out like crazy and I didn't realize it... It also stings when you apply it..

Cetaphil cream. I wish I could find something with SPF in it, though. Everything I've used in the past irritated the crap out of my face.

I can't use moisturizers that contain an SPF, they all sting. I apply a non-SPF moisturizer, let it dry, and then apply sunscreen on top if i'm going to have any significant exposure.

Hmm, good idea! I'll have to do that next time I need SPF!
