What Is Differin Gel?

Differin Gel is an acne treatment manufactured by Galderma. The medicine comes as a cream or gel. The active ingredient of Differin is Adapalene, a form of vitamin A.  It reduces the growth of keratin skin cells that block pores on the skin, causing acne. It is recommended that you use the gel for three months for better results.

How Does Differin Gel Work?

The skin naturally produces sebum to moisturise itself. When generated in excess, it mixes with keratin skin cells and forms a blockage to the sebaceous glands. This causes redness, whiteheads and spots on the face. Differin has an active ingredient Adapalene. It works by reducing keratin surface skin cells and sebum production. It lessens inflammation, helping improve the appearance of the skin.  Adapalene also increases the turnover of surface skin cells for natural exfoliation. This results in clearing acne and leaving the skin looking clear and oil-free.


Differin Warnings

  • Avoid using Differin on the skin if you have eczema, cuts, or scrapes.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, or nostrils, and other susceptible body areas. If accidental contact does occur, immediately wash the affected area with warm water.
  • Limit exposure to strong sunlight and artificial UV light. 
  • If you experience sensitivity or irritation when applying this medicine, stop using it and tell your doctor.
  • Do not use Differin when pregnant.


How to Use Differin 

  • Wash your face with a mild cleanser and apply the gel to the affected area.
  • Use clean fingers to rub in the gel.
When starting treatment with Differin, it produces effects similar to mild sunburn, including mild itching, redness, and warmth. This is normal and should subside.
