Elidel And Retin-A?

1 post in this topic

Hey guys,

I've been using Retin-A Micro (0.1%) for 2-3 years now, and it has done a great job at clearing up my face, aside from the occasional breakouts around that time of the month (damn hormones).

Since my face is nearly clear now, my issue is no longer acne, but redness. My face is red all over and I don't know if the retin-a caused it or if it's simply genetics.

I finally went to the dermatologist today and she gave me some samples of elidel to help calm my face, however I forgot to ask her which I should use first.

So my question: Should I apply Retin-A first, let dry and then apply Elidel? Or should I apply Elidel first and then RAM?

Also, if you have any thoughts about combining the two that would be helpful as well!

Thanks :)

My Skincare (super oily skin!):
-Purpose Gentle cleansing wash
-CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion


-Mac Cleanse Off Oil (for makeup removal)
-Retina Micro (0.1%)


-CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
