First, wash your face with clean hands and lukewarm water. You should use a mild soap, ideally the included Aczee Soap. Dry your face before applying the medicine.
Only apply a thin layer of S.O.S. Clindamycin to the affected areas, using clean hands or cotton. Make sure to avoid your eyes, nose, mouth, and any areas that may be irritated or sore. Do this twice a day.
Yes! You should always use sunscreen, even when you aren't using S.O.S. Clindamycin. That being said, this medicine makes your skin extra prone to irritation which can be caused by the sun. Please be diligent about applying sunscreen in the morning, and reapplying as needed throughout the day. We recommend a sunscreen that's easy on the skin, like Dermplus Moisturizing Sunscreen.
