Acnecide Gel 15g

For many people suffering with acne flare-ups, it can really affect their self-esteem. With a number of Acne treatments available including a range of washes and gels from Acnecide, it can often be difficult to know which to pick.

Each 15g tube of Acnecide gel contains 5% benzoyl peroxide, this makes it ideal for treating smaller often affected areas like your face. For larger areas such as your back or chest, it may be worth considering something like an Acnecide Wash to cover a greater area.

Acnecide 5% Gel has been clinically proven to reduce the bacteria known to cause spots. The microsphere technology in each gel is a special technology designed to get rid of excess oil and release glycerine to help moisturise the skin. If you are worried about skin irritation that can be caused by some acne treatments, the reviews of Acnecide gel 15g speak for themselves, this gel will reduce keratin, fight bacteria and help maintain the moisture of the skin.

Before using Acnecide gel 15g

Ensure that you have read and understand the instructions for how to use Acnecide gel. If you require further information, or there is something that you aren’t sure of, then do consult your pharmacist. The Tower Health team are always happy to help.

How to use Acnecide gel 15g

Apply a thin layer of Acnecide Gel to the area affected by spots, not just the visible spots. This will help to kill off the bacteria around the spots. Start by using Acnecide gel once daily, then increase to twice-daily if needed. If your skin starts to dry out or feel irritated, go back to using Acnecide once a day. Avoid contact with your eyes, lips and mouth. Avoid contact with hair and dyed fabrics, which may be bleached by the gel.

Fighting bacteria is only half the battle; it's also important to keep your skin clean and well hydrated.

Step 1- Cleanse

Wash your face with something like Acnecide face wash. This face wash cleanses without drying the skin and helps to reduce spot-causing bacteria.

Step 2 - Treat

Apply the Acnecide Gel to the affected area and around the affected area. Reduces the bacteria that causes spots by 95%

Step 3 - Moisturise

While Acnecide gel should keep your skin hydrated, everybody’s skin is different. Moisturising the skin after washing helps to prevent the skin from drying out and becoming irritable. Make sure that you use a moisturiser that works for your skin and doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy, such as Acnecide Moisturiser

How long does it take Acnecide 15g to work?

As with any acne skin treatment, Acnecide Gel will require patience and a consistent routine to see the results that you want. Depending on your skin, it can take between 8-10 weeks to have the desired effect, but that doesn’t mean you should stop using it if the effect isn’t immediate.
