How does tretinoin cream work for fordyce spots
Tretinoin cream makes the size of the sebaceous glands small and it also lowers the excessive sebum production of the skin. This action reduces the blockage of skin pores with sebum.

- When you are using this cream you first have to be very patient as immediate results are not seen on immediate application.
- The area has to be washed and dried first.
- After fifteen to twenty minutes you should take a small amount of the cream – about half inch of the cream on your fingertips.
- You should dab it on the affected area and blend the cream in well.
The effects of the cream will be noticed after some weeks and in some cases you may see the results you are looking for after a long time. The reasons for the cream taking a long time is generally because of the removal of toxins and impurities from the deep layers of the skin. The surface of the skin in the first few applications becomes flaky and scaly. This skin cream penetrates deep into the layers and starts the cell renewal process in the affected area. This takes some time and later you will find the Fordyce spots subsiding and the quality of the skin improving. The texture of the skin becomes fresh smoother and it looks brighter too.
