Differin Cream For Acne

differin creamWhat is Differin?

Differin is acne medication that is commonly used to treat acne. It is made by Galderma Laboratories where they produce three different types of this medication: Differin gel, Differin solution and Differin Acne Cream. It treats acne by getting deep into the pores where it clears existing acne and prevents new acne to develop.

How Acne Medication Differin Works?

When our skin absorbs Differin it starts to normalize cells that were cloging the pores. The normalization of skin cells occurs because Acne Cream Differin controls the growth of new skin cells and regulates the oil production which results in reduction of acne and prevention of further acne breakouts. Acne occurs when our hormones trigger abnormal accumulation of skin cells and higher level of oil production which cloggs the cells and enables faster growth of bacteria inside the skin. Differin works by suppressing some of these processes and helps us treat acne.

How to use Acne Cream Differin and Acne Gel Differin?
There are four short steps when we are using Differin to treat acne.

1. Wash your face. The best time to apply it is before going to sleep. Cleanse your face and the affected areas with mild non-soap cleanser.
2. Dry the skin. Gently dry your skin with warm (not hot) towel to remove excess water. Try to dry skin gently because rubbing it harsh will result in skin irritation.
3. Apply evenly thin layer of gel or cream over the entire face except the vulnerable parts like lips and eyes. Avoid touching treated areas directly.
4. Wash the Differin solution of your hands.

When using Acne Cream Differin or Differin gel you have to follow the prescribed instructions carefully. Using the solution more than once a say will not result in better effect but may cause several unwanted side effects therefore it is important to use it only once a day.
