What is Adapalene?
A derivative of vitamin A, Adapalene Gel 0.1% is a member of the retinoid ingredient family and previously only available by prescription. Retinoids help slow down the accumulation of dead skin cells in the pores, which is a main contributor to breakouts. Retinoids also help prevent and improve white heads and blackheads because they increase cell turnover. Studies have shown that compared to other retinoids, Adapalene gel 0.1% causes less irritation to the skin. Adapalene Gel is Oil-Free, Fragrance-Free and dermatologist developed.
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!
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 overnight, adapalene 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.
