Tazorac label says to put on moisturizer

Recommended Posts

This doesn't make too much sense to me. On the bottle of Tazorac it says:

"If a bath or shower is taken prior to application, the skin should be dry before applying the cream. If emollients are used, they should be applied and allowed to absorb into the skin before application of Tazorac."

I was always under the impression that moisturizers/emollients should be used AFTER Tazorac so Tazorac absorbs properly, but apparently I am wrong...


Color me confused.

Well, my skin dries out horribly on Tazorac (did the first time) and I just started putting it on again. I was planning on putting it on over the Tazorac, but according to the bottle of Taz it says to put it on BEFORE you put on the Tazorac? I wonder if that kills its effectiveness.

So, putting on the moisturizer first makes the skin more pliable and absorbant for the Tazorac?

yes I'd assume so...........why else would they in that instruction
