  • You can also add Proactiv Mask which contains Sulphur,Kaolin,Tea Tree oil which also helps with acne.This mask can also be used as spot treatment for pimples.
  • If you can still minor breakouts,then it will be good idea to add Sebamed Cleansing Foam in the evenings or before you go to bed.

After 15-20 minutes,dab Kaya pigmentation reducer gel on acne blemishes.

What to expect?

It is normal to experience dryness,flakiness,peeling so apply a moisturiser.


  • It is important to follow this regimen everyday to reap full benefits.
  • Do not unnecessarily additional products like face pack etc.
  • Do not use harsh cleansers.
  • Women should opt for non-comedogenic make up routine.
  • Men can shave with the cleansers like Sebamed Cleansing Foam,Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion, Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel etc.
  • This regimen is not for pregnant/nursing mothers.
  • Read here to cope with side effects of acne treatments HERE.


Due to various reasons,some products might not be accessible though I wouldn't suggest altering this current regime as much as possible.The below listed are next best options keeping in mind people residing outside India.

This regimen is not very harsh or rigorous because acne is not severe, so regimen is designed to address to treat mild acne.Once acne gets better,you can skip Metrogyl/Acne cream and continue with rest of the regimen for maintenance of skin and avoid future breakouts.

If you have any doubts or issues,please drop a comment below and I would be happy to help you out :) !

Good Luck !
