Depends. Also: Don't wash your face with body soap. Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face.

Hello. I'm currenty using Differin (adapalene) 0.1% and this id my third day. However im having terrible break outs since day 1. What do I do?

Consult a dermatologist for best result. ...Read more
