retin A....do i moisturize at night or in the morning?

ok, so im wondering if i should moisturizer 20 minutes after i apply it at night...or if i should wait till i rinse my face in the morning to do it. I think maybe I should do it in the AM because my skin gets super dry after i rinse it with water in the morning(i dont even use wash and it gets dry!) but im afraid its gonna make me look greasy, I just bought complex 15

I use retin-a micro at night and I think that you are not suppose to put anythign on after it. I would moisturize after you wash in the morning. I would was off the retin-a in the morning, i know its drying at first but your skin should get use to it slowly. I was twice a day and put duac (bp) on in the morning and retin-a at night and my face looks fine now. Oh and i use complex 15 moisturizer afer each

I moisturize afterwards....my derm told me to do my usual DKR routine, but replace the BP with the Retin-A. I let it dry completely (like 15 minutes or so), before I apply moisturizer.
