How to use Differin cream

You should use Differin cream at night before you go to bed and follow these steps:

  1. Wash your face, chest or back with a cleanser and warm water.
  2. Pat the area completely dry.
  3. Apply a thin layer of Differin cream to the affected areas of skin and rub it in gently using your fingers.
  4. Wash your hands after applying the cream.
  5. You can apply moisturiser a few minutes later to avoid skin dryness.

If you apply too much Differin cream, your skin may become irritated and red. Applying more Differin cream will not make your acne go away faster, so only apply a thin layer.

Differin cream can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so wear sunscreen every morning to protect your skin and avoid using sunlamps.

After 3 months of using Differin cream, you’ll need to see a doctor to check if you can keep using it.
