    I use neutrogena oil free moistureizor. I also use benzamycin. I put on the moistureizor a feww hours after the benzamycin. That seems to do the trick.

    Why do it at night... If no one is going to see your dry face just apply some in the morning...

    I guess you could if you had to, but I think it would be better to wait a few hours in between, just to make sure that there's no interaction.

    i use benzamycin during the day and i put moisturizer on...um..yeah about 10 minutes after...maybe like 15 minutes..anyway, i use aveeno moisturizer and it's not greasy at all and has no adverse effect on the medication. i think you should put it on at night if your skin is dry..why wait until the morning? if you're skin is overly dry it produces more oil..more oil...more clogged pores and more pimples...whether its day time or night.

    I usually woulnd't put moistorizor on at night. If your skin is really dry, moistorizor just helps make the surface more moist. It doesnt penentrate and restore the 'balance'. If you put it on at night, you might actually be lessening the natural moistorizing that your skin will do while you sleeep.
