I believe moisturiser should be put on after your acne treatment is absorbed into your skin (usually 5-15 mins).

I think it should be okay to put moisturiser in morning then acne treatment at night (also using moisturiser after the night treatment would be a good idea too).

My skin was dried so I looked quite like a handsome fish lol

So I stopped BP (twas making me dry) & now my skin is very nice and smooth again (I put moisturiser 3 times a day. Although you only need to put it on twice. I did so, because my skin feels quite like a modern basketball).

Hope this helps you old chum,

Hope the drying problem ceases asap! ^-^

What is your regimen?

If your regime is making you excessively dry then it would be best to treat once a day. Most acne treatments sensitize the skin and applying topicals at night would definitely be the better option than in the mornings, before sun exposure.

As for moisturizer, you apply moisturizer after your acne treatment. You could apply moisturizer in the mornings too. In fact, it would be most advisable since your skin is dry at the moment.

Acne Treatment - PM

Moisturizer - AM & PM

i dont think there is any harm in using a moisturizer whenever as long as the moisturizer is non comodogenic, which means it doesnt clog pores as its oil free.
