Should differin be applied at nighttime in general?

Does it matter if I say apply it at like 11 pm, then go to sleep at 1 am

Or should I aim to apply it at like 1230 am then go to bed 30 minutes later

Or does it not even matter

Yup, it doesn't matter.

If you're experiencing irritation wait 20-30 minutes to apply it after washing your face, and at least 30 minutes after applying it before moisturizing. Differin makes you photosensitive so use a sunscreen during the day regardless, unless you want post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation to last longer.
