Tretinoin affects the growth of skin cells and is used to treat acne. This medicine decreases the number and severity of pimples, and helps the pimples that do appear to heal quickly.
Do not take this medicine if you are pregnant. During the first few weeks of using tretinioin, your acne might appear worse. Don’t worry! This is only happening because the medicine is working on the pimples that are forming inside the skin. Because if this, you may notice results after about 8-12 weeks. To get the most benefit from tretinoin, you need to use it regularly—but don’t use it more frequently than recommended.
Directions for use
First, wash your face with clean hands and lukewarm water. You should use a mild soap, like the Aczee Soap included in the Acne Cure pack. Dry your face before applying the medicine. Then, wait 20 to 30 minutes before applying the medication.
You only need a small amount: a drop the size of a pea is enough, spread as a thin layer. Only apply Acnoin once a day. We recommend doing so right before bed.
Use clean hands or cotton to apply your medicine. Make sure to avoid your eyes, nose, mouth, and inner lip area. Do not apply to cut, scraped, sunburned, or eczema-affected skin. If Acnoin gets on the previously mentioned areas, wash thoroughly with water.
Do not take this product if you are pregnant.
Yes! You should always use sunscreen, even when you aren't using Acnoin. Since Acnoin can make your skin extra prone to irritation from sun exposure, please be diligent about applying sunscreen and refreshing it as needed. We recommend a sunscreen that's easy on the skin, like our Dermplus Moisturizing Sunscreen.
