Some tips to remember when applying acne medication:

Applying acne medications may sometimes cause slight irritation such as dryness, burning and tightness of the skin. However, this is normal and related to its active ingredients. A remedy would be to apply the acne medication one at a time, or every other day until the skin gets use to it. Applying a light moisturizer in the morning can help.

If the acne medication is cream  or gel based, just squeeze a pea size to your fingertip. This is sufficient enough to cover the entire face. But be sure to avoid applying around the yes and lips because these are very sensitive areas wherein the skin is thin. These are medications you are using so reactions can happen if you apply too much.

Clean the face properly. If you wear make-up such as foundation or concealers, be sure to use a make-up remover (cream or lotion based), wash the face gently with mild cleanser and pat dry, do not rub the face nor use hand towels. The face should be clean and dry; residue make-up acts like a barrier so absorption of the medication will be lesser, thereby makes it ineffective.

Excessive exposure to sunlight or UV radiation should be avoided.

Never use other topical acne medications not recommended by your physician because this may cause interactions, or may produce additive irritant effects with your present prescribed drug.

It is best to consult your dermatologist for the proper acne drug suited for the specific type of acne. It is best you have your doctor’s guidance on how to properly apply the acne medication, the length of the acne treatment, the possible reactions that can happen and what to do in such cases.

Be consistent in applying your acne medication. Results cannot be seen overnight, the skin needs time to recover. Compliance to the acne treatment depends on you. Best result is seen when you apply the medication consistently.
