Apply a thin layer of Differin® Gel all over your face once every day, whether you have just a few spots or a full-on breakout. Working it into your daily skincare routine — and not skipping days — is important to allow the gel to do its job clearing and preventing acne.
You may start to see a reduction in acne around the two-week mark, and some may even see results after one-week. Some dryness and irritation may occur — it’s normal and usually only lasts a few weeks. Use a moisturizer like Differin Soothing Moisturizer.
This is what you've been waiting for. Acne is significantly reduced by week 12 (up to 87% reduction, according to clinical studies). Your skin is healthier, and you’re looking at a face you can feel great about. Keep Differin in your daily routine for continued improvement.
Simulation of actual clinical results
Use a thin layer of Differin® Gel once daily, all over your face - not just on acne spots.
Differin® Gel works both deep in the pores and on the skin's surface.
Acne spots begin to decrease.
Any dryness and irritation usually subsides after about 4 weeks. Don't let it stop you from getting to your best skin.
Switch to using every other day if you experience too much irritation when starting Differin® Gel. If irritation becomes severe or overly bothersome, stop use and ask a doctor before continuing use.
Acne is noticeably reduced, which leads to improvement of skin tone and texture.
Continue to use Differin® Gel daily to keep pores clear and help prevent future breakouts.
