Which is The Best Gel For Battling Acne?


When it comes to topical creams and gels that promise to fight acne, especially when they’re so readily available, it feels almost futile when those products don’t deliver on their promises. 

So if you’re someone who has tried and tested multiple such products and have now exhausted your energy searching the internet for the best gel for acne, you’ve landed on the right blog. 

Overall gels are preferred to cream solutions for oily, acne-prone skin type as it doesn’t clog pores by building up on the uppermost layer of your skin. There are various ingredients and chemicals that work at different levels to treat acne. 

As OTC gels do not need a prescription, most people swap through products till they find one that suits them. However, if you want promising results, there are two ingredients you need to know about – Clindamycin and Nicotinamide. 

  • Clindamycin
  • Clindamycin is a lincomycin antibiotic, aka the type of antibiotic used against infection causing bacteria.
  • When applied topically, it penetrates inside the skin’s barrier and helps you kill the acne-causing bacteria.
  • As one of the main reasons for an acne breakout is related to the bacteria that gets clogged in your pores, clindamycin helps by stopping the growth of its infection altogether. 
  • Nicotinamide
  • Nicotinamide is the water-soluble version of vitamin B and works as an anti-inflammatory ingredient for acne cysts that are deep and painful.
  • As it boosts cellular energy and helps your body repair/promote healthy cell growth, nicotinamide works well with clindamycin.
  • Various studies have shown promising results for a number of skin-related conditions like acne vulgaris, rosacea, ageing skin and atopic dermatitis (eczema). 

The reason why this combination works is because together, these ingredients help reduce the swelling and sensitivity caused by stubborn acne. This combo checks all the boxes from killing bacteria, preventing further pile up, to repairing your skin’s barrier and hindering the growth of new pimples.

With the benefits of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, AcneStar Gel is the best gel and the ultimate solution to your pimple problem. Pair that with our AcneStar face wash which has the perfect blend of ingredients like aloe vera, basil extracts, calendula chamomile, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid to help you combat those stubborn pimples.

Getting acne-free skin is just two steps away, so are you ready to walk our way? That being said, it is advisable to always consult with your dermatologist before you start any kind of new acne treatment, especially if you have severe acne and a highly sensitive skin type.
