Apply thin layer. .: to all areas of the skin that have acne after gently cleansing the skin and drying. It works both to reduce redness and swelling of active lesions, but also helps to open the pores and prevent further pimples. As it may be drying, start with once daily for a few weeks, and then increase to twice or three times daily if well tolerated. It can be used on both face and back but avoid your eyes.
