What Else You Need to Know: Adapalene treats and prevents acne which helps restore your skin's natural tone and texture. This retinoid gel prevents blackheads and whiteheads, reduces redness from acne, unblocks and shrinks clogged pores, and restores skin by supporting skin cell turnover.

Adapalene is the first new active ingredient approved to treat acne without a prescription in over 30 years. Dermatologist-developed and tested, Adapalene is a safe and effective retinoid, which doctors have prescribed to over 40 million people globally for more than 20 years. Some users may notice a reaction called retinization, the adjustment period in which the skin becomes acclimated to Adapalene Gel. During this time, skin may become red, flaky, and irritated. It is highly recommended that you use a moisturizer to help relieve symptoms of retinization, which typically begin to subside around week four of your retinoid treatment. Remember to always use a sunscreen when using Adapalene.
