Can You Mix The Retin-A With A Moisturizer?

Recommended Posts

Or will it destroy the Retin A and make it less effective? I noticed that it's hard to really get all areas of the skin with just a tiny pea drop of Retin A, so could one mix it with a small drop of moisturizer in hands and apply it on the face?

Yes, you can use both. My dermatologist did say that mixing the two together dilutes the Retin A, but that if the medication is irritating your face, the moisturizer dilution can minimize that. I moisturize and then wait 30 minutes and then apply the Retin A. That way I don't have dry irritated skin, and the medication isn't diluted.
