A - RET & ACNE A - RET CONTAINS TRETINOIN IN GEL When used under medical supervision , Tretinoin is regarded to be the most effective comedolytic agent . Tretinoin unplugs acne follicles and brings acne pimples ( comedones ) to the surface .

Gently squeeze a pea size amount of the gel on your clean fingertip and spread it mildly on the affected area each night before retiring . Excess amount of gel must not be used . Do not let medication enter into your eyes . Tretinoin makes the skin more sensitive to sunlight and can cause dryness , redness , tenderness , swelling of the skin and burning sensation .

Consult your Doctor who may advise you to use lower strength gel or decrease the amount of the gel . First 2 to 3 weeks may cause discomfort due to irritation , which eventually should subside .

SOME GENERAL INFORMATION Acne or acne prone skin requires special attention with regard to cosmetics , cleansing and sun protection Foremost among the prophylactic measures is the use of non - comedogenic and non - acnegenic cosmetics and the avoidance of agents known to promote acne such as Hair Pomades . Use of greasy / oily cosmetics and picking and fiddling of lesions aggravate acne . Too frequent washing may also aggravate the condition . Wash your face twice daily in the morning and evening .
There is a popular misconception that steaming the face improves acne and complexion . While it is true that brief exposure to moist heat will soften comedones prior to their physical removal , repeated and chronic exposure to moist heat actually aggravates acne and may even lead to a form of topical acne . Similarly sunlight / ultra violet light was thought to be beneficial in acne . In fact short exposure to sunlight may hasten the resolution of inflammatory lesions and suntan can mask the lesions . However , chronic exposure leads to thickening of the epidermis and follicle , resulting in subsequent aggravation of acne . Photoprotection is an important adjunct for individuals with acne or acne prone skin . ALWAYS KEEP THE SKIN CLEAN - Clean face with a mild soap or face wash . - Style hair so that it does not directly touch the forehead and face . - Keep items that touch the face and hair directly ( such as pillows ) clean . - Do not touch inflamed skin with the fingers . USE OF COSMETICS - Use non - greasy cosmetics formulated especially for acne prone skin . - Do not apply oily foundation thickly as the fine particles will enter and block hair pores . OTHERS - Reduce consumption of fatty foods such as fatty meat , nuts , chocolates and cocoa . - Reduce stress such as that associated with overwork and over exercise . - All other topical acne agents must be stopped prior to initiating retinoic acid therapy . Patient compliance is vital in the management of acne as the therapy is long and it takes months to get benefit of treatment .
