Retin-A what is the correct information********!!

my derm prescribed retin-a at night to help with some box scaring and redmarks.

He said apply my moisturizer before I put a pea sized amount of retin-a at night

I have heard so many mixed reviews that you are not supposed to moistuize before or wait til after or don't moisturize at all what is the correct information please respond..

I personally like to apply retin-A about 20 minutes after washing as I found out applying it when my face is still damp caused irritation for me for some reason. I read about it and others had the same problem. I usually would then apply moisturizer about 10-15 minutes after that. I think it all depends on your skin.
