Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment
Unlike other acne treatments you can buy in stores, Differin contains the first OTC Rx-strength acne-fighting retinoid. Retinoids play a crucial role in the treatment of acne by regulating skin cell turnover & reducing inflammation deep in the skin to clear & prevent pimples. What makes the retinoid in Differin (Adapalene) so cool is that, unlike other topical prescription retinoids, Differin is gentler on your skin, while still effective — and you don’t have to do things like completely avoid sunlight forever!
Let’s be honest, at a certain age you’d rather have another breakup than another breakout. We feel like acne as an adult shouldn’t happen, but it does. Over 50 million Americans suffer from it annually. So...you’re not alone. But before you head into that board meeting sporting your three-piece suit and your latest breakout — it might be time to give Differin a try.
