Choose the spot treatment format you prefer to use: a leave-on gel or a wash-off treatment. Use of a gentle cleanser and a protective moisturiser alongside your choice of treatment can also help support skin's tolerance to treatment. Here is our treatment routine edit:

Complete the routine with a balancing moisturiser to hydrate, soothe and protect your skin barrier. For day time it is recommended to use UV protection (and to avoid direct sunlight) while using Acnecide treatments as your skin can become more photosensitive. UV exposure during a breakout is also related to the formation of post-breakout dark marks and uneven skin tone. Purifide moisturisers are non-comedogenic: they don't cause blocked pores.
