i just started using Duac after 6 months. decided to stop to see if skin gets any better.

well it didnt so im still here with acne.

ive started again as of yday.

first i put the duac on cos its just logical to put that on b4 any moisturiser.

Yes, moisturize after. And wait at least 30 minutes to moisturize in order to lessen irritation. If you apply it too soon you could feel an uncomfortable burning sensation. It's not unbearable, but not pleasant either. Best of luck with the meds!
