  1. You really should moisturize on accutane. Remember, oil in and of itself does not necessarily cause acne-- it's the clogging of your pores. Accutane works in more than one way: it reduces inflammation, reducles sebum production, and it also normalizes the way your skin sheds cells. The last one is arguably re most important: your skin can be incredibly oily but if your pores don't get clogged you won't get acne.
