Skincare Concerns: Acne and Blemishes
-Adapalene 0.1%: Prescription-strength retinoid for acne treatment.
What Else You Need to Know: Adapalene Gel is a topical retinoid that treats and prevents acne which helps restore your skin's natural tone and texture. This retinoid has been shown to reduce acne by up to 87 percent in 12 weeks with continuing benefits with further use. The retinoid gets into the pore in five minutes and treats acne at the cellular level. 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.
Adults and children 12 years of age and older:
-Use once daily.
-Clean the skin gently and pat dry before applying the product.
-Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer.
-Use with a gentle, noncomedogenic moisturizer, preferably one with sunscreen protection, to counteract the dryness.
-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.
