Moisturisers

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi I've got a thread further down the board about roaccutane, which I've been on for 3 weeks now (going well) however my skin is just starting to get to the point of dryness where I absolutely have to have some kind of moisturising cream on my face. The thing is, I have E45 but it makes my acne flare up and makes my face look REALLY shiny and red. Is there anything else which works but isnt going to make my face look like a laminated tomato?

    I'd recommend Nivea soft.

    But then I haven't read your other post so feel free to ignore me

    Use Witch Hazel Gel from Boots, it's fantastic for everything, very soothing.

    Speak to whoever prescribed the roaccutane, or talk to a local chemist. Syence www.syence.com are pretty good, but their stuff is pricey.
