You are right in saying that you should avoid using many chemicals as what i have seen is females with acne get very conscious and use many medications at the same time. You should just follow your dermatologist
and dont try all remedies suggested by everyone together.
Acne can be precipitated by the following which you should try to avoid
Greasy or oily cosmetic and hair products
Certain drugs (such as steroids
, estrogen, and phenytoin
High levels of humidity and sweating
You can use neutrogena face wash. It does help in acne.
Adaplene is a retinoid
, and a derivative of Vitamin A
. Adaplene is mainly used to treat Acne. Adaplene multiplies the cell turnover of the skin, removes the skin oils, decreases inflammation and speeds up the healing of acne. It not only treats acne but also helps prevent new acne from forming.
Adaplene may cause some side effects in the beginning such as: dryness, redness, stinging, scaling and itching of the skin. If these side effects are severe, inform your doctor.
Adaplene should be avoided during pregnancy
. If you plan to get pregnant or are pregnant, you should tell your dermatologist. Also Adaplene also increases sensitivity of skin to sun. Use of sunscreen is recommended when you are using Adaplene.
Acne take time to go, usually 6-8weeks, so have patience and trust in the treatment of your dermatologist and dont take stress. As stress precipitates acne.
