Question about moisturizer with retin-a

I'm currently applying retin-a .025% at night and 5% BP in the morning. I use Olay Sensitive moisturizer in the morning after I apply BP. But I don't know if I should use moisturizer after I've applied retin-a at night. My derm said I can moisturizer as needed if my skin is dry. When I wake up, my skin isn't really dry so I don't know if I should moisturize at night or not.

If your face gets very dry, yes, you can moisterize lightly after you use the retin-a. I would apply the retin-a, wait about 15 minutes (give it time to fully absorb) and then moisturize.
