Skinoren and moisturiser. How to apply?

Postby Frances489 on Thu Jan 25, 2018 6:06 pm

For the past few years, I've only used Skinoren as and when I get papules. However, I'm going to start using it more often, daily, as my cheeks are quite red and I'm getting the papules more often.

I wondered about using moisturiser, as my skin is quite dry. Do I put the Skinoren on first and then the moisturiser? Do I have to wait any length of time before applying the moisturiser? After that, can I then put on my foundation? Advice on using Skinoren with moisturiser and makeup would be appreciated.

Hi there :) I've done it both ways. I've put the treatment on first and then moisturizer, and I've also done the moisturizer first before the treatment. I think when you're going to put on foundation after, do the treatment first, wait til it absorbs, and then do the moisturizer, and then the foundation. I've found that Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream plays nicely with both my treatment and my makeup.
