Washing Question?

I put Differin Gel on my face every night. My question is do I have to wash it off right away when I wake up or wash it off anytime I want to, like around 1 pm

Well, usually people just wash their faces when they wake up in the morning and do a whole different routine...treatments, moisturizer, make-up, etc. I am assuming you do that or something close to that, so yeah, I'd just wash it off when you wake up. It makes the most sense.

You want to leave Differin on until you wash in the morning. Wash in the morning, wash at night--you wash to clean makeup, oil, etc. off of your skin to prime it for topicals like BP or Differin. As a rule, the only things that you want to wash off soon after putting on are cleansers and masks.
