FAQ

Acne Myths

Although Acne is one of the most widespread skin conditions, it is also one of the most poorly understood. This results is many misconceptions and myths about what causes it, or how best to treat it. Some common myths are listed below.
“Acne is caused by a poor diet.”
So far, research has not found any foods that cause acne.
“Acne is caused by having dirty skin and poor hygiene.”
Most of the biological reactions that trigger acne occur beneath the skin, not on the surface, so the cleanliness of your skin will have no effect on your acne. Washing your face more than twice a day could just aggravate your skin and can sometimes result in worsening the symptoms.
“Squeezing blackheads, whiteheads and spots is the best way to get rid of acne.”
This can often make symptoms worse. More importantly however, it can result in life long scarring. However tempting it is to pop a spot, (and we know it’s tempting!) it’s best not to.

Directions

How to Use Differin Gel? The gel is usually applied to the affected area in the evening, after washing your face. Remember when washing your face, you should use warm water, and ideally an oil free acne wash. Patting your skin dry is also preferable, as this is less irritating to your skin. Following washing, apply Differin thinly over all affected areas with your fingertips. Differin is not for use in children under 12. Spread a thin layer evenly over your entire face, avoiding the areas around your eyes and mouth Differin Daily Gel (like many acne treatments) can take between four to six weeks before you see noticeable results. It should NOT be used for more than 3 months consecutively.
