My grandma bought me epitrel and it is from Mexico. I do not understand exactly how to use it because it is in Spanish. My acne is about gone but I have scars from it and was told that this is supposed to help. Is this true? How often should I apply it to my face?

Hi Elizabeth,

I can confirm that it is an acne cream, with the US product equivalent called "Retin-A". Epitrel contains the active ingredient Tretinoin; which is mostly used to treat severe acne.

The directions say:
"Apply a very thin layer, at night, before bed. You only need to use a very small amount.

Wash your face in the morning with a good cleanser, then follow with a good moisturizer."

I hope this helps!

Use a dime size on affected areas only twice a week until your skin gets used to it. After 2 weeks you use more often. But never use more thank a dime size amount!
