You are buying 1x 30gm T3 Mycin Lotion, containing 1.2% Clindamycin Phosphate
Clindamycin is an antibiotic.
As an acne treatment, it works by killing the bacteria that can get trapped inside clogged pores.
This makes it a powerful tool for preventing the inflamed, painful acne that can develop during a breakout.
Dermatologists usually prescribe clindamycin to people with inflammatory or cystic acne.
As an antibiotic, clindamycin specifically targets the bacteria that cause acne to become inflamed and painful. The same bacteria can also cause acne to spread by infecting other nearby pores.
Using a combination of clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide outperformed other topical acne treatments. You can order Benzac 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Gel here.
The combination of clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide also worked better than either of these two ingredients on their own, showing that clindamycin is most effective when used as one part of a more comprehensive acne treatment and prevention routine.
Like other acne medications, clindamycin starts working as soon as you apply it, but it doesn’t always produce immediate results. On average, it takes between six and 12 weeks to notice an improvement in your acne from clindamycin.
In short, clindamycin works. It works even better as an acne treatment when it’s used alongside other medications to control your body’s production of sebum and skin cell turnover cycle—two additional factors that can contribute to acne breakouts.
Before you apply clindamycin to acne-affected areas, wash these areas thoroughly using soap and water. Gently dry your skin using a towel and make sure all of the soap has been washed off the skin before applying the clindamycin cream.
Apply the clindamycin lotion to the affected areas of your face, making sure not to irritate any acne lesions. Make sure you wash your hands immediately after using clindamycin cream to avoid leaving the medication on your fingers.
After you’ve applied the clindamycin, avoid using other skincare products, makeup or other topical creams. If you’ve been advised to use clindamycin more than once daily, follow your doctor’s dosage recommendations.
