Re: Moisturizer and cleanser suggestion when usingTazorac?

I was on Tazorac for a year and it worked amazing. I went through a very ugly first two months though. After getting out of the shower I found my skin to flake off like crazy after drying off. So I would take a facecloth to rub the skin off when it was still wet and that caused my face to glow red for hours. It's either that or walk around with dry dead skin all over. I found using a moisturizer just burned and stung when applying. So, I went completely solo and just used Tazorac and that's all. I hear a very good moisturizer is called Glaxal Base which I never tried. It's the bare bones moisturizer with nothing added. It's the base that all other moisturizers start from. So I would expect that to be the least irritating. As for cleansers. Use the mildest possible. I suggest like the neotrogena bar which has no soap and is very mild. I still use that to this day. Hope this helps!
