Acne Cream

What is Acne?

Acne can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, genetics, stress, and certain medications. When hormone levels fluctuate, the skin's sebaceous glands produce more oil, which can clog pores and lead to acne. Bacteria on the skin can also contribute to the development of acne by causing inflammation and infection. In addition, lifestyle factors such as diet, sleep, and exercise can play a role in the development and severity of acne.

There are several types of acne creams available, each with its own unique ingredients and mechanisms of action.

  • Antibiotics Gel, designed to kill specific bacteria that causes acne on the skin.
  • Benzoyl Peroxide, a common ingredient that works by killing bacteria and reducing inflammation.
  • Salicylic Acid, another popular ingredient that helps to unclog pores and exfoliate dead skin cells.
  • Retinoids, such as adapalene and tretinoin, work by increasing cell turnover and reducing inflammation. Other ingredients that may be found in acne creams include sulfur, azelaic acid, and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).

Choosing the right Acne Cream

When choosing an acne cream, it's important to consider your skin type, the severity of your acne, and any other skin concerns you may have. If you have sensitive skin, for example, you may want to avoid products that contain harsh ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or AHAs. If your acne is mild to moderate, over-the-counter products may be sufficient, but if your acne is severe or persistent, you may need to see a doctor for a prescription-strength product.

Your doctor may also recommend you a combination of two or more acne creams, depending on the severity of your acne. Talk to our doctor, let us best understand your concerns. Our Toa Payoh clinic is located a sheltered 3 minutes walk away from Toa Payoh MRT.
