Acnomel Acne Cream is a non-prescription acne medication tailored to treating adult acne. Because adult skin is different to teenage skin, this medication is especially formulated to treat acne in adults. It is a topical cream which you apply directly to the affected areas and unlike most other anti-acne cream treatments, it does not contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.
Acnomel Acne Cream contains resorcinol (2%) and sulphur (8%); these 2 ingredients are generally used in adult acne medications. Other inactive ingredients include alcohol (15%), iron oxides, octoxynol 9, potassium hydroxide, carbopol and propylene glycol.
Resorcinol is used to treat a range of skin ailments such as acne, eczema and psoriasis, however it is also a chemical commonly found in hair dyes particularly black and dark brown, making it very caustic indeed and particularly concerning at the thought of applying it directly to the skin.
Sulphur can not only be irritating, but also well known for having an unpleasant egg like smell. You should not use Acnomel Cream with any other anti-acne treatment, creams or otherwise. It is wise also to avoid using any harsh skin care products such as soaps or medicated creams or cosmetics.
Does Acnomel Really Work?
Acnomel Acne Cream does indeed treat the majority of people’s acne symptoms, but due to the severity of ingredients it is best reserved for those with severe acne when other treatments have failed. Many users report dry, flaky and red skin and some report their acne getting worse with the use of Acnomel Cream. For a short-term treatment, Acnomel may well be a suitable and affordable alternative but for long-term use, we would recommend consulting your doctor for a more appropriate and less harsh way of treating your adult acne.
Its lightweight and non-greasy consistency helps to minimise the appearance of large pores, prevent against future breakouts and treat spots. Acnomel Cream should be applied to clean skin, thinly over affected areas 1 to 3 times a day. It is advised to start off with one application a day and gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if acne is particularly severe or if a doctor directs you to.
Where to Buy Acnomel?
Acnomel Acne Cream is an over-the-counter (OTC) product and can be purchased from pharmacies as well as online for around $7-$10.00. So it is a relatively inexpensive and easily accessible anti-acne treatment.
