Differin

Hi there

I''m 5 weeks pregnant, and struggling with acne. Can I continue using Differin cream on the affected areas of my face?

Thank you!

Differin gel is absorped through the skin into the body and therefore, it can not be used during pregnancy. Rather consult your doctor for an examination and a possible alternative. Intense Pulse Light treatment is recognised by the FDA as treatment for moderate to severe acne. This treatment will be safe during pregnancy.
