Applying Moisturizer

Recommended Posts

I'm not used to applying moisturizer ontop of BP or any medication for that matter. Is it ok to apply moisturizer first? I know the regime says to apply moisturizer last, but I like to apply it shortly before my face drys after washing it so it doesn't get tight and dry.

I went to the Dermatoligist today and forgot to ask him what he thinks. It does make sense to have the medication enter the skin first, so I'm assuming applying moisturizer first is proven to be less effective? I'll try to change my ways. Just aslong as I don't dry out.

I've been bouncing around with different cleansers and I've been using a generic proactive BP wash and creme. They've been working well for me, but I dry out and I think it's the cleansers fault. The Cetaphil antibacterial bar makes my skin tight and the BP wash makes my skin burn. Today I was given samples of Clindamax lotion and Tazorac. I've used Tazorac before, but wasn't patient. I'm going to work on a regime.
