Help with tretinoin and moisturizer/makeup

Postby Prittivacant » Mon Jan 18, 2016 5:12 pm

I am a new tretinoin user and am following my doctors instructions exactly. I am getting mild redness and a little peeling has begun.

I wash my face and then apply Cerave cream to my face and neck. I wait 30 minutes and apply the tretinoin. I know I am going to look like hell for a while but my problem is my skin looks like crap under my foundation ( liquid foundation applied with beauty blender) during the day. I can't go without it to the office but it just breaks away from the skin and makes me look even worse by the end of the day.

Any recommendations on a moisturizer to use in the morning? Or primer? Or a particular foundation that might disguise my use of tretinoin for a bit?

Thanks for any help.
