  • How Does Differin Gel Work?
    • The skin naturally produces sebum to moisturise itself. When generated in excess, it mixes with keratin skin cells and forms a blockage to the sebaceous glands. This causes redness, whiteheads and spots on the face.
    • Differin has an active ingredient Adapalene. It works by reducing keratin surface skin cells and sebum production. It lessens inflammation, helping improve the appearance of the skin.
    • Adapalene also increases the turnover of surface skin cells for natural exfoliation. This results in clearing acne and leaving the skin looking clear and oil-free.


  • Differin Warnings:
    • Avoid using Differin on the skin if you have eczema, cuts, or scrapes.
    • Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, or nostrils, and other susceptible body areas. If accidental contact does occur, immediately wash the affected area with warm water.
    • Limit exposure to strong sunlight and artificial UV light.
    • If you experience sensitivity or irritation when applying this medicine, stop using it and tell your doctor.
    • Do not use Differin when pregnant.


  • How to Use Differin:
    • Wash your face with a mild cleanser and apply the gel to the affected area. Use clean fingers to rub in the gel.
    • When starting treatment with Differin, it produces effects similar to mild sunburn, including mild itching, redness, and warmth. This is normal and should subside.
