Contains the active ingredient : Adapalene 0.1%, which is a retinoid medicine - a derivative of vitamin A.
Adapalene works by increasing the turnover of skin cells. This aids the natural exfoliation of the surface layer of skin and helps to unblock the pores and sebaceous glands (the glands that produce sebum, the skin's natural oil), allowing the sebum to escape. It reduces the formation of blackheads and spots.
Adapalene also acts as an anti-inflammatory, reducing redness and swelling in the skin.
What is it used for?
- To treat mild to moderate acne.
Apply Differin at night. Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and pat dry.
Apply a thin film of the gel to the areas of acne and leave on overnight. Let the Differin gel dry.
Try not to touch the treated areas and wash next morning with a mild soap or cleanser.Side effects:
Do not be discouraged if Differin causes redness, burning or peeling at the beginning of the treatment. These effects most commonly occur during the first month of treatment and should decrease with continued use.
If a serious reaction occurs, discontinue use of Differin gel and consult your doctor. If the reaction is less severe use the gel less often or stop for a while until the irritation dies down.Precautions:
Differin topical gel should not come into contact with the eyes, lips, angles of the nose, mucous membrane and open wounds.
If accidental contact occurs rinse thoroughly with water. Avoid exposing skin treated with Differin gel to excessive sunlight.
Use a sunscreen gel and wear protective clothing if exposure to strong or prolonged sunlight cannot be avoided.
Do not use a sunlamp while treating your skin with Differin gel.
Weather extremes such as wind or cold may also be irritating.
Avoid the use of oil-based makeup and gels. Cosmetics with an abrasive, drying or peeling action may cause extra irritation.
