Retin A and moisturizers?

Recommended Posts

What's the typical regimen for using retin a and moisturizers. My thoughts are to wash skin before bed with cetaphil, dry face and apply retin a. Should I also apply a moisturizer over the retin a or should I just leave the retin a on overnight without using a moisturizer. In the morning I just wash with cetaphil and apply moistuizer before work.

If you want to apply a moisturizer after Retin-A, you can do so, just make sure that you wait a sufficient amount of time. I usually wait 30-60 minutes before applying my moisturizer.
