Is Adapalene Right For Me?
Adapalene Gel is suggested for the treatment of acne blemishes, including blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores. It only needs to be applied once-daily, which is ideal for anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of time on their skincare routine. Adapalene Gel is great for those looking to try a prescription strength acne-fighting ingredient. This product does not contain benzoyl peroxide, which means it won't bleach your sheets and towels!
How to Use
• Apply once daily after gentle cleansing + thoroughly drying the skin
• Limit sun exposure and apply SPF during the day
• Avoid abrasive cleansers, vigorous scrubbing and astringents
• Apply all over face. This is not a spot treatment.
What to Expect
Adapalene Gel may take up to 3 months of once-daily use to start seeing smoother and clearer skin. Unlike other OTC topical treatments that dry up acne over night, Adapalene Gel works under the skin to unclog pores and clear up acne pimples. Therefore, patience is key! You may also experience some dryness and irritation while your skin is adjusting to the treatment.
