Yes: If you are talking about the normal peeling of new infant skin in the first month, sure it is fine to do a moisturizer, as long as it is unscented, and preferably a creme rather than a lotion.

Moisturizer: Find a good moisturizer one that says oil free and non- comdeogenic on the label.

Yes: This is exactly what one should expect from a topical retinoid (differin (adapalene) is a retinoid).

Change treatments.: Differin (adapalene) also comes in cream form - creams are less drying than gels. If the cream still causes peeling, use less of it, or apply it at bedtime, or both. If it still dries your skin, ask your dermatologist for a different treatment. Trying to neutralize a drying skin treatment with moisturizers is an exercise in futility, and defeats the whole purpose. ...Read more
