How Adabor Gel works

Adabor Gel is a combination of two medicines: Adapalene and Benzoyl Peroxide, which treats acne (pimples). Adapalene is a form of vitamin A and Benzoyl Peroxide is a keratolytic medicine. Together, they prevent accumulation of the sebum (skin’s natural oil), unblock the pores and allow natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. Benzoyl Peroxide additionally penetrates into the skin and kills acne-causing bacteria.

Hello sir/mam I have problem of pimples How I reduce this pimple problem???
Dr. Deepak Kumar Soni
Skin Specialist
Oatmeal is beneficial in reducing acne because it cleanses your skin pores and absorbs excess oil. Plus, it exfoliates your skin. Mix one teaspoon of honey and the juice of half a lemon in a cup of cooked oatmeal. Rub this mixture over your skin. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Do this once or twice a week. You can get pure aloe vera gel by cutting a leaf off an aloe vera plant and squeezing the gel from the middle. Apply the aloe vera gel to the affected area twice daily.
