Basic skincare routine


  • Wash your face with or without a cleanser
  • Apply moisturizer to damp skin. (Not sure what cleanser or moisturizer to use? Opt in to the Curology set. It includes Curology's cleanser & moisturizer alongside your Curology custom bottle).
  • Apply sunscreen, and/or makeup (SPF 15 or greater).


Does your formula include tretinoin? If so, we generally recommend using a moisturizer once or twice daily. But note that this is optional.

Note that your Curology cream is already made with a lightly moisturizing base, so you might not need additional moisturizer at night.

You can apply your moisturizer any time of day, including after you wash your face or after you apply sunscreen. You can also use moisturizer a few minutes before or after you apply your Curology formula in the evening; this can be nice if you’re experiencing any dryness or irritation.
