Topical Acne Preparations - Additional Information

  • ​Avoid washing your face too often as this may increase the drying-out effect of your topical acne preparation. Wash your face 2 to 3 times a day only.
  • Avoid applying heavy make-up and using oily cosmetics. It is recommended to choose make-up products with non-oily formulas.
  • Avoid staying directly under sunlight for long durations. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen product with Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30 and wear protective clothing when you are exposed to direct sunlight.
  • These medications do not work immediately. You may need to apply the medication for a few weeks to see an improvement in you condition.
