how to avoid pilling

how to avoid pilling? so I'm using azelaic acid and this moisturizer and I noticed some pilling when I'm on the moisturizer step... i don't have a problem when I'm using my toner then azelaic. Is my moisturizer not suitable with azelaic acid? Can I use azelaic acid without moisturizer at night? Is it still effective? or can I mix azelaic acid and my moisturizer to avoid pilling? πŸ˜… I have another unopened isntree moisturizer so I'm still planning to use this but what moisturizer do you use when you are using cos de baha azelaic acid?

Make sure you don't use too much of the serum and let it dry complete before you apply an appropriate amount of moisturizer, that helped me a lot with pilling issues 😊

maybe they're just not meant to be used under the same routine. try to use them alternately and see if the results would still be the same.

Try waiting a few minutes after serum application to let it fully absorb first before applying moisturiser. This may help reduce pilling. If it still happens, then I guess the two aren't compatible with each other. I pair the Cos de Baha Azelaic Acid with Isntree Aqua Gel Cream and it works fine. It works well with my other serums and moisturiser too.
