The American Academy of Dermatology recommends topical retinoids as a first-line therapy for all acne cases
Acne is pervasive and difficult to manage, but DrFormulas® Retinol Cream for acne features a unique blend of active ingredients to promote clear, blemish-free skin. Formulated for all skin types, our retinol cream may help you control whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts to promote smooth skin.
The main active ingredient in our acne treatment, retinol belongs to a class of compounds known as retinoids, which are chemical derivatives of vitamin A. Studies show that topical retinol (and retinoids in general) work primarily by increasing skin cell turnover, which allows for the shed of dead skin cells and the increased growth of new skin cells. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce clogged pores, and support smooth, even skin. The increased cell turnover may also mean you can use retinol cream for acne scars and blemishes.1
Retinol is becoming a mainstay for acne therapy. Evidence suggests several mechanisms of action that help to reduce acne blemishes. Along with its ability to speed up cell turnover, retinol has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties while resolving precursor microcomedone lesions.2
Initially extracted from white willow bark, salicylic acid acts as an effective peeling agent due to its ability to disrupt cellular junctions and unclog pores. Studies also show that salicylic acid may possess natural anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties. This suggests that salicylic acid may reduce the bacteria responsible for acne lesions, P. acnes.3
Hyaluronic acid helps to attract and seal in moisture to prevent potential dryness and irritation on your face. Keeping your face moisturized and hydrated also presents a healthier look and feel. Maintaining your skin’s moisture makes it look softer and plumper and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Along with its effects on skin hydration, hyaluronic acid possesses anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, which may help you manage existing acne scars.4
Niacinamide is one of the two major forms of niacin (vitamin B3). Studies show that niacinamide plays a major role in the coenzymes involved in hydrogen transfer. Topical application of niacinamide stabilizes skin barrier function, which translates to improved moisture content and reduced water loss. The vitamin may also speed up skin cell turnover, smooth out wrinkles, and improve surface skin structure. Niacinamide may also help pigmentation issues, including dark spots or red skin.5
Benefits of Retinol Cream for Acne
1. Acne Treatment
The active ingredients in DrFormulas Retinol Cream work together to combat several contributors to acne, including bacteria and clogged pores. The formulation can help to reduce whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts, and to potentially prevent future breakouts.
2. Sebum Control
DrFormulas Retinol Cream is designed to control your oil production in your sebaceous glands. This helps to prevent clogged pores and irritation that result in the formation of acne lesions, while also keeping your skin balanced to prevent an overly oily or dry complexion.
Inflammation causes pain, redness, and swelling, all of which makes acne uncomfortable and contributes to the formation of cysts and lesions. The ingredients in our retinol cream for acne may help to soothe inflammation, allowing your skin to glow and thrive.
4. Improve Scars and Blemishes
The formula features ingredients that promote skin cell turnover and encourage new skin cells to form. This can help to heal or decrease the appearance of existing acne scars to provide smooth, soft, blemish-free skin.
This retinol gel has the perfect percentage to do daily without over drying! Keeps the wrinkles away!
Much needed complexion boost
I have been using this cream at night for the last few days followed by a gentle moisturizer, as directed. Just a small amount is needed. I have not experienced dryness at all and have pleasantly been surprised by a softer, more even, brighter complexion. I don’t do a high maintenance routine and this fits perfectly in also fading any random marks and bumps. I will continue to use as I love the result so far. Everyone loves a glow! Will also use on my teenage son’s typical breakouts and see how well his skin reacts to that. Very satisfied thus far!
Older women problems
I have suffered for over 20 years with cysts on my chin once a month that would take weeks to heal. Very painful and very embarrassing since I'm in my late 40's now. Since using the retinal along with vitamins I'm finally free. I can't tell you how happy I am how I'm feeling normal now. Thank you I'll be a lifetime member.
Tiny Bumps on forehead
I love this retinol gel because i have been using it for about 4 months for tiny pimples on my forehead now and see a drastic change. A little goes a long way and it is very inexpensive. Now i feel comfortable without wearing makeup. FAVORITE PRODUCT. :)
I have been suffering from hormonal acne for a long time due to my hormonal imbalance and zits pop up all the time. I started using this a week ago and results are noticeable. The big zits easily flattens and my chin (w/c usually where the pimples are) starts to clear out. Hopefully with continued use this cream will also help clear out old scars.
