Post Moisturising without....

...moisturisers. I'm on accutane and so have dry skin but it also looks very dull. However I hate using moisturiser cos it makes my red patches glow something awful. What kind of facial washes/regimes can be used to help moisturise without needing to use a moisturising cream as such?

Alot of folks on this board are dry due to prescription meds(myself included although I am not on accutane) May I ask what your dermatologist has recommended to combat the dryness associated with Accutane? I do recall a poster here who was studying to be a derm and they said that moisturizers were not recommended for us with acne conditions. Who knows! I feel your pain over the dryness. As an alternative to "creams" there is alot of info here on jojoba oil. You may want to research it.....also don't know about the accutane and jojoba combo. Maybe someone else has input on this?
