In brief: Depends

Both differin and retin a (tretinoin) act similarly.
Both can be a bit irritating or drying. One or the other would probably adequate. Be sure to continue to moisturizer well and use a good sunscreen!

In brief: Too much good thing

Differin (adapalene) and tretinoin are both retinoids, they should not be combined- it's too much of a good thing.
The moisturizer will be helpful after applying your retinoid. Good luck! retinoids are fda approved for acne and fine lines.
