Can I use a moisturizer with AHAs while on Retin-A?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I was just wondering if it would be safe to use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion with SPF 15 (the one with AHAs) in the morning while I am going through my course of Retin-A micro (applying at night)? Thanks.

I use Lac-Hydrin Five after trentinoin and have no problems. My derm said it would be fine. Lac-hydrin Five is not as strong as Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion though, so you could call your derm's office & ask to be safe.

Or you could call the pharmacy & ask the pharmacists opinion; they are supposed to know what medications are okay to use together & which aren't.
