What moisuruzers work well with Renova?

Hi Dr. Irwin, what moisturizer work well with Renova...I read on your page about A.G.E. moisturizer from skinceuticals would that work well?..I'm looking for one even tho i read all your favorites. Thank you

This one’s easy because any moisturizer that works well with your particular skin type will work well with Renova.  Pick one that suits your level of oiliness, dryness, acne, etc and the Renova will be fine with it.  Some patients find that they are just a little dryer when using Renova so you might need one slightly more emollient.  Also, to avoid irritation and peeling, wash your face with a gentle cleanser first, the apply moisturizer, wait 5-10 minutes and then apply the pea sized amount of Renova.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
