How To Keep Face Moisturized While Using Retin-A?

I've been using Finacea and Retin-A Micro since January (Finacea twice a day, Retin-A Micro once per day in the evening). The Retin-A Micro is making my skin quite dry and flaky. I'm trying to use a gentle scrub once or twice a week to help with some of the peeling, but it's still really frustrating. I'm using two VERY high quality manuka honey-based moisturizers, plus a manuka honey-based cleanser with vitamin c, but my skin is still being stubborn. I was looking for a moisturizing mask to use, and bought this mask from John Masters.

Does anyone have any tips for how to deal with dry skin from Retin-A?

I'm not super impressed with the Retin-A Micro yet. Still breaking out on a regular basis, with new pimples every 1-3 days. sad.png Hope it starts working better soon. I'm sick of having skin that's super oily, broken out, yet at the same time really dry!
