Q. Can I use the acne reduction gel on dried up acne spots to clear them?
A. Hello Rahul

Acne gel would help more with active acne or pimples. You could explore the Face Serum to remove the acne spots. Also I would advise scheduling a free consultation with one of our skin doctors at You can share the images of your face, and they will be in a better position to prescribe the right solution for you.

Q. This face wash clear my ance in 3 months
A. Hello Mohammed

The face wash by itself might not clear out your active acne. But it will definitely protect you from further acne. Please use the gel on active acne and face wash as part of your daily regimen to keep your skin clean. I am sure you will start seeing benefits in three months. Also please followup with a doctor at every month to review your progress.

Here's what our kit doesn't do

Doesn't clear your skin overnight

This is not Alladin's genie who can grant your wish overnight. This process requires patience. After all, don't all good things take time?

Doesn't fix cystic acne

If you happen to have this severe form of acne, consult a dermatologist.

Doesn't replace your skin care regimen

In order to see best results, you must clean your face with a face wash or cleanser and nourish with an oil-free moisturiser or serum every morning. Every step in this process is vital for your skin's health.

Happy Customers!


Got Questions?

Its normal to be curious, we will answer your doubts comprehensively here, for everything else we are just a Whatsapp message away.
Transformations take place over time with discipline and consistency. This oil control face wash will take about 2 months to show effective results depending on your skin.
No, using this face wash does not cause any side effects. However, depending on the sensitivity of your skin, this oil control face wash may cause mild dryness. If this is the case, use this face wash with salicylic acid and glycolic acid once a day and be sure to moisturize your skin to prevent excessive dryness.
Soap often dries out the skin by disrupting its natural oils & is too harsh for the skin on your face, which happens to be the most delicate. So instead of soap, we use AHA in this face wash for men which exfoliates your skin gently yet effectively.
Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid in this face wash for oily skin go deep into your pores and clean out the gunk accumulated there. They also dissolve the extra sebum produced in the skin.
This face wash is specially designed for men's skin which is oilier, thicker and has larger pores.
This mild foaming face wash is non-comedogenic and contains Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid - ingredients that help prevent acne from forming. However, it won't help in curing your existing acne.
This face wash is only meant to suit people with oily and combination skin. If you're someone with dry or normal skin type, this face wash has the chance of over drying your skin.
Our product is perfect for oily and combination skin. Avoid using it on dry skin.
We recommend that you use a regular moisturizer first and then apply this spot correction gel only on the pimples and acne clusters. It's meant for topical usage.
Who doesn't love a pizza every now and then? But learn to avoid excessive consumption of junk food and sugary drinks as they lead to disrupted hormones, further aggravating your acne.
Maintain a balanced diet (and maybe a cheat meal every now and then).
The AHA-BHA in our gel may cause minor dryness. If you notice excessive dryness or peeling, reduce usage to once daily. Avoid application on cuts, eczematous, sunburnt or abraded skin and allow it to dry before applying any additional products. We don't recommend usage with retinol-based products.
No! DEFEND is easily available over-the-counter and does not need a prescription. Although, it's best to check with your dermatologist if you have more severe cases of acne.
Our product is water-based and very light on the skin!
Cystic acne is a severe form of acne which requires attention of a dermatologist and cannot just be cured with this Clearing Gel
