Before + After

See the difference Differin can make

Week 0

Apply a thin layer of Differin Gel all over your face once every day, whether you have just a few spots or a full-on breakout. Working it into your daily skincare routine — and not skipping days — is important to allow the gel to do its job clearing and preventing acne.

Week 2

You may start to see a reduction in acne around the two-week mark, and some may even see results after one-week. Some dryness and irritation may occur — it’s normal and usually only lasts a few weeks. Use a moisturizer like Differin Soothing Moisturizer.

Week 12

This is what you’ve been waiting for. Acne is significantly reduced by week 12 (up to 87% reduction, according to clinical studies). Your skin is healthier, and you’re looking at a face you can feel great about. Keep Differin in your daily routine for continued improvement.
