Tip of the Week: Acne Patients – Use a Moisturizer

Many patients with acne shy away from moisturizers, and doctors often recommend avoidance. However, there is more and more evidence that the barrier function of skin is compromised in acne patients. In addition, topical acne medications often contribute to skin dryness. Using a moisturizer reduces dryness and irritation and leads to more consistent use of the acne medications., which in turn leads to better control of the acne.
