Does applying gel in a certain way affect its effect?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi! I started differin gel (adapalene) July 2018. Ever since i did it has been going okay, still regularly break out which is annoying but nothing awful that i had before. although i would have the occasional horrifying week of acne. 

i would get home, wash my face, use moisturiser, and then about an hour later apply the differin to my face. 

More recently, (past 2 weeks or so) I’ve been applying the differin after i wash my face, and then the moisturiser when i wake up. My skin is seeming to clear up. i have red marks from the acne i had the other week and only one small pimple. I don’t want to get my hopes up but, does my routine/order of application really affect how it works that much?
