  4. sorry for the delayed response but this is the one I use and I think it's great. a hydrating cleanser will state that it is hydrating and/or moisturizing! http://www.cerave.com/our-products/cleansers/hydrating-cleanser
  5. I had oily skin prior to using accutane and I didn't wear a moisturizer! If you feel that your skin doesn't need it, don't use it. But I would recommend using a lightweight moisturizer at night. Also water alone will not cleanse the skin, so you do need a cleanser! Maybe a hydrating cleanser if you're not going to follow up with moisturizer.
  6. Hi, I have dry sensitive skin too! Some products that I like are the cetaphil moisturizing cream for dry, sensitive skin. It is very thick. I also like the Pond's dry skin cream! For cleansers I like the cerave hydrating cleanser. It really does hydrate my skin and helps with flakiness too. I wouldn't recommend exfoliating the skin if it is very sensitive. Perhaps go a day or two without makeup and see if your skin is less irritated because maybe certain makeup products are causing the irritati
  7. My skin was very oily before starting accutane and now it is oily, sensitive, and dry. Here's what I like and don't like Products I like: Cetaphil moisturizing cream for dry sensitive skin- great to put on dry patches. Very thick Cetaphil lotion for dry sensitive- put on underneath moisturizing cream all over face. Lightweight but can be greasy sometimes Cetaphil oily skin cleanser- use at night. Removes makeup, cleanses skin. Smells nice. Can be a little tightening though Aveeno daily mo
  8. Side effects: Dry cheeks Dry eyelids Dry lips Mid/lower back pain Skin changes: Previous breakouts are healing New breakouts. Will not go away for about 2 weeks Overall thoughts: my skin is still improving. Right now I have two active breakouts and the other ones are continuing to heal. My 2 active ones are strange though..they're not normal whiteheads or cysts. They look like big sores. They're dry, rough, and difficult to conceal. My back has also been hurting. Not too bad though b

  10. In between the eyes for sure!!! It's the most noticeable.
  11. Happy New Year everyone!! Let's defeat acne together this year As an acne sufferer for about 3 years now, I have FINALLY learned not to let my skin bring me down. Long time, I know! From personal experience, I have noticed that whenever I was insecure about my skin, I would look worried and shy. That drew attention to my acne and people would stare. It made me feel terrible. I thought, "why are people looking? so rude!" But then I realized that I was bringing this attention to myse

I am a 17 year old female and have been struggling with face and back acne for 3 years. I have very oily skin. My acne began when I was 14 years old. It wasn't too unbearable at first. I had a few pimples on my forehead and around my nose. Never anywhere else on my face. But after a couple months my skin grew worse and became very oily. Products from the drugstore were not helping
