Topical niacinamide skin cream for acne
Do Acne Gels Work?
Several of todays popular acne cream treatments contain either retinoids or antimicrobials. Antimicrobials, as their name suggests, kill or inhibit the production of the bacteria that cause acne. On the other hand, retinoids, derived from Vitamin A, unclog pores and stop the formation of whiteheads and blackheads. Following are examples of these.

Topical Antimicrobials

· Clindamycin is a semi-synthetic antibiotic. Clindamycin lessens inflammation and reduces acne. Clindamycin has been proven to be safe and well tolerated. However, side effects such as irritation and skin dryness are possible. It decreases bacterial resistance caused by antibiotic use.

· Erythromycin has both antimicrobials and anti-inflammatory properties. Acne creams combining benzoyl peroxide and erythromycin have been proven to be quite effective. Possible side effects are irritation and dryness of the area treated. It also decreases bacterial resistance caused by using antibiotics.

Topical Retinoids

· Adapalene is a synthetic retinoid that unclogs pores and has moderate to potent anti-inflammatory properties. Minor skin irritation and dryness may occur with use.

· The first retinoid produced for topical (applied to skin) use was Tretinoin. Tretinoin is a natural retinoid which over time unclogs pores, and helps keep them unclogged. Burning, itching and redness are a few of the side effects that some users observe.

Topical Niacinamide Skin Cream (also called Topical Nicotinamide Skin Cream)

After Vitamin-A derived retinoids, the most recent revolutionary treatment for acne comes from a substance called niacinamide. It is made from the B vitamin niacin.

Niacinamide and acne treatment were the subject of a New York State University study, where 76 patients were studied for the acne healing effects of 4% niacinamide gel versus 1% clindamycin gel. The preparations were used on moderate to inflammatory acne, twice daily for eight weeks.

RESULTS...68% of the Clindamycin patients improved, compared to 82% of Niacinamide treated patients. Moreover, since Clindamycin is widely known to diminish bacterial resistance, niacinamide is even more preferred.

Acnessential, a 4% Niacinamide cream, is one of the most effective acne cream products in the market today. Some advantages are...

· It is safe and natural to keep using it for as long as necessary.
· It will not make your skin develop bacterial resistance unlike most antimicrobials.
· It is ideal if you have dry, sensitive skin and cannot tolerate retinoids well.

Furthermore, 4% Niacinamide cream (such as Acnessential) can be used alone or alongside antibiotics and even retinoids.
