What is the best way to avoid skin peeling by EpiDuo?

What is the best way (in your experience) to avoid skin peeling with products like EpiDuo? (https://www.nps.org.au/medicine-finder/epiduo-gel)


I'm currently using EpiDuo and its really helping but my skin won't stop peeling.

I've been on the treatment for over 3 months now using a pea sized amount on my entire face everyday.


It bothers me a lot since its very visible during the day.


I am currently using Effaclar Cleansing Gel twice per day. Washing for about 1 minute each time.

Effaclar Cleansing Gel: https://www.laroche-posay.us/face-and-body-skin-care/face-products/face-wash/effaclar-gel-facial-wash-for-oily-skin-effaclargelcleanser.html?dwvar_effaclargelcleanser_size=200ML#q=cleansing+gel&start=1


Currently I use a moisturizer during the day to cover it up, but  I'm looking for a more permanent solution to solve it (eg: a lifestyle change, cleansing more, cleansing less, etc..)

Does anyone have anything to share on this? 


I would really appreciate it!

Moisturising is a common part of the skin care routine, just as washing your face.

Just keep it up!  If you still feel dry use La Roche Posay Effachlar H moisturiser.

If you don't want to wear it during the day then use a good amount at night.

My skin was so dry when I was taking Isotretinoin and whenever I would have laser treatments.

I'd recommend non comedogenic moisturizers that's on the heavy side, like Avene Cicalfate.
