Moisturize After Shower?

Moisturizing and Retin A use
Moisturizing after a shower is the best time. Blot your skin dry and apply a fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer made for sensitive skin.
Also, if your skin is dry because you use Retin A, you can apply a thin layer of moisturizer under the Retin A at night. It depends on the reason for Retin A: treating acne or photodamage. Photodamaged skin is dry to begin with, so applying moisturizer will be helpful.
