ACTIVE ACNE CURE - A PRODUCT REVIEW June 06 2016, 0 Comments
During my journey through the teenage, I had struggled with acne and scars. I had acne mainly on face and some on my back too. Since my acne was not severe, I had kept searching and using many home remedies to cure it completely but nothing really worked. If something did the job, it was not long until it came back. After a while of trying different products and home remedies based on my own researches, I gave in and decided to visit a dermatologist.
My dermatologist analyzed my skin condition and prescribed me 'Acdermin gel' and 'Sanclear cream'. She suggested me to use it for at least a month before I would start seeing results.
Acdermin gel is a combination of Clindamycin phosphate and Tretinoin. It must be applied externally on the pimples. A pea sized amount works quite well for one side of the face. It should be applied on the face by targeting each pimple and rubbed in well avoiding the eye and mouth area. It starts to show its results in minimum a week. It first dries out the pimple and then continues to reduce until the pimple is gone. Keep it for few hours or overnight and then wash your face. The cons of this gel are that it has a strong scent but bearable and sometimes it can cause redness to the skin and make it dry. But, using a good moisturizer later works just fine. It is recommended to use it once or twice a day but in my opinion it shouldn't be used more than once everyday as it can cause dryness.
Sanclear cream contains Hydroquinone/Glycolic acid which is a skin bleaching agent that is used to lighten spots and freckles. It should be applied on darkened parts of the face. It should not be rubbed well rather just be tapped on the skin. The product should not absorb in the skin. Continual usage of the products starts to lighten the skin and fade the spots with time. It can be used along with Acdermin gel without any side effects.
Both of these products used together worked wonders for my skin. It takes some time to show the results. I had used it for about 6 months to clear my moderate acne. These are quite cost effective. Although the brand name could be local, but the combination can easily be found.
