clean skin, not dried out

How can I possibly keep my skin clean without drying it out? my skin is very sensitive and i have been haveing problems for ever. I use cetaphil gentle cleanser and olay moisturizer for sensitive skin. however, my skin still gets dry and tight. if i leave it a lone then i get dead skin build up and my face isn't clean. what should i do to make my skin stay clean but not dried out at the same time? any face washes that would be better for me than cetaphil? please help me.

Only wash once a day (with a very light moisturizing soap), and DONT use any topicals

Use a moisturizor, they are good for your skin in general too. My skin would be dry no matter what i washed it with, so i only wash in the evening, and always apply my moisturizor.

Re: clean skin, not dried out

I noticed my face isn't quenched with just the Oil of Olay moisturize for sensitive skin. I had to put petrolatum on my face before I would take a shower. It really did a good job of moisturizing, and then I washed my face with cetaphil. Scrub once a week also to get that dead skin off your face. Cetaphil is non-abrasive so it doesn't taken off dead-skin cell accumulation
