How does Epiduo gel work?
Epiduo gel works through the active ingredients of Adapalene and Benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene is a type of retinoid. It works to treat the skin processes that lead to acne. Benzoyl peroxide is an antimicrobial medication that works to soften and peel the skin’s outer layer as well as tackling the microbes which can trigger acne.
How should you use Epiduo gel?
Once a day (in the evening before bed) evenly apply a thin layer of gel over the cleaned and dry acne-affected areas. You should avoid the eyes, lips, and nostrils. Make sure to thoroughly wash your hands after use.
Is Epiduo gel suitable for me?
Epiduo gel is suitable for those aged 9 or over who are suffering from acne. You should not use the gel if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy, or if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the medication. Epiduo gel is suitable for those who are breastfeeding, but in this case, should not be used on the chest area.
