When do i use the moisturizer?

Recommended Posts

Hello All. Just wondering if i should use the moisturizer before or after i apply my prescription topical meds. I use Benzaclin in the am and Differin Gel at night. I don't want to decrease the effectiveness of either drug by applying moisturizer when i shouldn't. Does anyone know the answer to this?

Thanks.

Jen

put on the moisturizer last. your skin is going to absorb the topical meds just wait a few minutes before applying moisturizer.

my derm suggests not applying moisturizer at all

That's ridiculous. No moisturizer with topicals?

Your skin would be severely dry.

I know you apply it after the medications though.
