  3. Easy-to-apply topical gel

Acne causes spots and pustules to form mainly on the face, chest and back. It is a very common condition with around 80 percent of people aged between 11 and 30 being diagnosed. The majority of people with acne will see it improve as they get older, although some adults continue to experience symptoms throughout their lives. The severity of the condition can vary greatly from a sparse covering of blackheads or whiteheads, to lots of deep and painful pus-filled cysts. The condition is not contagious and does not usually lead to long term health problems but it can cause scarring. Acne can have a detrimental effect on the person’s self esteem and wellbeing; and can even lead to depression.

There is no current cure for acne. However, some cases can be helped by introducing a twice daily cleansing routine. For more severe symptoms there are various types of treatment available. This includes topical medicines such as Differin gel which you can purchase from our online pharmacy.

Spots form on the skin when sebaceous glands become blocked. This leads to an accumulation of sebum, the oil produced by the skin to keep it moisturised. The blockage means that excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells. This mixture then plugs follicles and causes either a blackhead or whitehead to form. Harmless bacteria that usually live on the surface of the skin are then able to infiltrate the system, sometimes leading to infections and cysts. Differin uses the active ingredient adapalene to reduce the production of keratin skin cells which clog up pores. This allows the excess sebum to exit the sebaceous cells and prevent spots from forming.
