Does anyone know if differin is excreted when you sweat. I work out everyday and I'm just wondering if differin comes off when you sweat like benzoyl peroxide does. Differin doesn't seem to come off but I'm not so sure.

I don't believe so, as long as it's absorbed.

But, you should be applying it before bed. Then you wouldn't have to worry at all. It would make sense to put it on after your skin is cleansed, and after working out, before bed. I wouldn't want to be all sweaty, and then get into bed, I assume you bathe afterward?

That's a good time to put on any treatment.

so it doesn't matter if I have Clindoxyl on for a few more hours than I do Differin?

i think it depends on how long before you workout you have applied it. My derm told me to use it only in the evening, before bed. Apparently sunlight breaks it down as well. If you can use it at night only, at least you know more of it will have the opportunity to sink in.
