My doctor just prescribed me tretinoin 0.025 gel to use on my horrible acne. I will be starting it tomorrow night. I know you're supposed to wash your face first, and then wait 20 minutes before applying the gel. I just wanted to check to see if it was better to use moisturizer before or after applying the tretinoin gel? Thanks in advance!
Moisturizer should only be used after you've applied the medication.
