| | OK to use a moisturizer before Tazorac/Retin-A if surface skin is flaky?
I have been alternating using tazorac and retin-A on my face, but find that my skin gets very dry and flaky (even though I still have zits!). Does anyone know if it's OK to apply a gentle, water-based moisturizer on your face before applying tazorac or retin-A, or would I be totally negating the effects of the tazorac/retin-A? I hate to stop using these two because I also need them for sun damage/aging skin. Thanks for any and all responses!
