Need to update acne regimen

Deepika
This post was updated on .
Hello priyanka😊..how are you gal?how's life going? I am doing well with my skin and allergies but I needed to ask u a question bcoz I am so confused..do u think that the products which we used earlier while going on treatment causes u the same infection or problem later??..I am asking you bcoz I have realised that whenever I use triacnael  or clindamycin on my face I got little bumpiness around my lips or mild inflammation around my lips next morning..and I have recently experimented again with triacnael and at that day I haven't applied anything on my lips but same thing happened next morning..what do u think?

Hi Deepika,

How are you?How is life?

Its possible that your skin developed sensitivity due to all the allergies and corticosteroids.So if you are sure then discontinue both Triacneal and Clindamycin.I don't want to risk it when things have been good.

How about giving Epiduo a shot once skin calms down?If it suits you then you could probably get a prescription there in US.

Hi Deepika,

I am good.Life is good too.Weather is crazy here.Monsoons have started here and pours here 24/7.Hot summers are definitely going away.What about you?How is work?Hectic as ever I guess

Kindly do not use Keihl's Midnight Serum,it has about 10 oils and 15 comedogenic ingredients.There is no anti-bacterial or anti-acne ingredients.This serum works best for normal and mature skin types.Definitely not our friend!!.I look around for other options.

Try one tube of Epiduo and see if your skin is able to adjust.Then we will see what to do next.

Keihl's midnight serum is a intensive moisturiser.There is no other benefits.Serums are concentrated oils.Definitely not recommended for oily-acne prone skin.Unless they have ingredients like retinoids,vitamin C,azelaic acid etc they will not treat acne.

Kaya Night Cream has Vitamin C so do not use with Epiduo(Retinoid) as it deactivates vitamin a in retinoids.

Do not use acne treatments only as spot treatment,you are not really taking full advantage of the product.Apply on entire face and if necessary a little extra on acne/acne blemishes.

Yes you can alternate them.There should be minimum 24 hours gap between them.

And yes adjust the frequency depending on how your skin handles it.

Deepika you definitely need a acne treatment cream.Serums will make it worse.I really hope Epiduo suits you!

I wanted to pitch in here ! Deepika, please don't fall prey for such luring high end products. They are not one bit good. I've used all such ones- Estee lauder, Kiehls with zero results and aggravating my acne in the past. Go for products that Pri suggests and that will do your skin good. Tc
