Shaving while using Retin-A Question..

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have some quick question.s Im on Retin-A and I was wondering if its okay to apply it immediately after I shave (which is in the evening), which means I wouldnt be applying a moisturizer or aftershave. Or, is it okay to shave and follow with after shave, the wait for like an hour, wash face again, wait 30 minutes and then apply retin-A? or would that be to harsh since I would be washing my face too much? Moreover, is it okay to apply Retin-A over an aftershave? thanks.

I find it alot more drying if i apply retin a after shaving so i shave in the morning and apply the retin a at night which helps a bit ;)
