Skinoren Cream vs. Differin Gel and Cream - which is best

Acne is a distressing skin condition that can affect people at any age although it is most commonly associated with teenagers.  Acne problems can be treated with a range of different topical products including acne cream and gel and two of the leading treatments are Skinoren and Dufferin.  If you want to buy Skinoren online in the UK or buy Differin online then Pharmacy Planet sells both products, but which is best?

Skinoren cream contains a 20% concentration of azelaic acid which is an organic compound that kills bacteria and reduces keratin.  Clinical trials have found it to be on a par with Differin when it comes to effectiveness with the added benefit that azelaic acid is less prone to causing dryness.  Keeping skin hydrated is a very important element of the treatment regime for acne.  Both treatments work to prevent the hair follicles from clogging up whilst other acne creams and gels use antibiotic bases to fight harmful bacteria.  It is best to avoid using peeling agents or abrasive cleansers whilst using Differin as they are likely to have an additional drying or even irritant effect on the skin in combination with this treatment.

What is acne?
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions and is caused by a hormonal imbalance that affects the sebaceous glands in the skin creating an excess of sebum, an oil that is normally present to hydrate and protect the surface of the skin but becomes excessive creating spots and pustules.  The sebum clogs up the pores in the skin which causes the growth of a bacteria called P acnes which in turn causes an inflammatory response and the telltale swollen red lumps and bumps.  Skin treatments can help manage acne in conjunction with meticulous skincare routines.
