Ive never been on accutane and yet i have naturally dry skin and acne. All i do to treat my acne is wash my face once every other day (i shower every other day so i wash my face in their), yet my skin is still dry. I dont even wash with soap but use the cetaphil liquid cleanser. Ive seen people with acne like my sister and their foreheads and noises are generally glistening by the end of the day. I go the entire day and my forehead and nose are totally dry and occasionally flaking. I dont understand this. I dont do anything! I dont put on any acne creams on or anything. How can i have acne if my body is not producing extra oil? I thought that was what acne was all about. Im a 19 year old male if this helps explain anything. Am i really that unique? Is it possible to have acne and not have oily skin? I saw my doctor last week and he said i could go on accutane if i wanted too but im scared my skin is going to not be able to handle it. I mean who has ever heard of a person starting accutane with dry skin already? Imagine what its going to be like with 60mg of that stuff everyday. Im at a loss
