In what order should I apply my products?

I am currently using Skincueticals C+AHA and Suncscreen in morning and at night using Tazorac 1% cream. I would like to use TNS essential cream, since you spoke so highly of it. When would I use it during the day?

In your situation, it would be fine to put the TNS Recovery Complex under your Tazorac at night.  Just use a gentle cleanser, put the TNS on, wait a few minutes and then apply the Tazorac.   Or, you could use them on alternate nights.   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! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
