Acne cream that works

The skin care formula available through Hers can help clear up blemish-prone skin and control future breakouts. The prescription acne cream is mixed with a combination of tretinoin, niacinamide, and clindamycin and available at different strengths.

Uneven skin tone

How tretinoin, niacinamide and clindamycin work

This power trio reduces acne-causing bacteria and inflammation, and helps prevent future breakouts— leaving your skin looking clearer and healthier. Tretinoin accelerates skin renewal, wiping away old problematic skin cells and bringing new healthy cells to the surface. Niacinamide has been shown to even out skin tone, improve elasticity and enhance how skin acts as a barrier. And clindamycin is an antibiotic that targets those acne-causing bacteria. With all three, this acne cream can help fight breakouts, clear skin and keep those pimples away.

How to apply acne cream

Because this is a prescription strength cream, your skin will likely have a transition period. You should carefully follow the directions of your medical provider. Typically, it's recommended to start with a pea-sized amount of the acne formula every 3rd night to build tolerance and increase as your provider recommends. Wash your face with a non-clogging cleanser (eg, a non-comedogenic one) before applying this cream (such as our Deep Sea facial cleanser or an over-the-counter facial wash containing benzoyl peroxide), and you can use moisturizer as needed after applying it.

Common side effects of acne cream

The most common side effects of the acne cream are skin redness, peeling, itching, stinging and irritation, especially where the acne cream was applied. Sun exposure while using the acne cream may cause increased skin sensitivity. If you experience these side effects, tell your provider. If you are in serious pain or have signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives or trouble breathing, seek medical care immediately.
