How to use Differin gel

Simply apply Differin gel on the acne-affected areas. Make sure the skin is dry, avoiding areas around eyes and lips. Do NOT use Differin with another topical medication (benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, tea tree oil, etc) at the EXACT same time of day, it might irritate the skin and block the Differin from working properly.

Pandia Health’s expert doctors recommend allowing 12 weeks to see improvements on the skin. The treated area may look worse before it gets “pretty”.

Differin gel 0.1% components are adapalene 0.1% carbomer 940, edetate disodium, methylparaben, poloxamer 182, propylene glycol, purified water and sodium hydroxide.
