How Atm-A Gel works

Atm-A Gel is a combination of two medicines: Azithromycin and Adapalene which prevent and treat acne. Azithromycin is an antibiotic which stops bacterial growth by inhibiting synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Adapalene is a form of vitamin A which prevents accumulation of the sebum (skin’s natural oil), unblocks the pores and allows natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin.
