Moisturizer + Adapalene = ?

Recommended Posts


I was just prescribed Adapalene/differin and was told not to wear moisturizer. Well it got SO dry and painful that I called my derma and he said I could use a little cetaphil moisturizer. Thank goodness. But the reason he told me not to use moisturizer was because it clogs pores so now I'm worried all this effort I put into clearing my skin might bite me in the but. Will using moisturizer on my face ( Ill usually only be putting it on once in the morning ) lessen my chances of getting clear skin while on this medication. Thank you!

I really just let my face get used to it, and now it only gets dry when i do some heavy spot treating. I use Neutrogena Oil-Free moisturizer when I needed it, and I don't really think it clogs pores, who knows. Good luck with the Adapalene, i've been on that with Doxycycline for about 4 months and it's cleared up really well!
