getting really dry skin near mouth and hyperpigamentation

so i just got put on doxycycline and also epiduo creme which contains adapalene and bp.

for night time i use johnson's baby wash cleanser and then put on the cream.

if i were to use a moisturizer would it be best to use it at night after the cream? or should i just leave the epiduo on at night and then moisturize during the day?

ive tried both but im not sure what is the most effective for treatment and also for dryness.

also, would an aha lotion cause more dryness or would it help out?

Yeah same with me. Ive always had problems around my mouth. BP makes me wake up every morning with flakes everywhere. When I was usin dans cleaner as well, it was way worse. also using tap water. I have since made my shower head filtered, and dont use a cleaner. just wash my face in the clean water and put on as little BP as I can, and I dont have dry problems anymore, but still acne, lol.
