Moisturizer: Use a gentle cleanser with a built in moisturizer. Most of the treatments for acne can be irritating to the skin, so it's important to pamper your skin prior to application of the meds with a moisturizing cleanser. During day, make sure you have a product with a built in sunscreen on!

Sure: It's a very good idea to use a moisturizer daily, and this can be at bedtime, in addition to prescribed acne medications.
