Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I'm reaching out to seek your expert advice on managing mild acne on my sensitive skin. Could you kindly recommend suitable products available in Botswana for treating this condition?


Answered by Dr. Anna Chacon


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


As a dermatologist specializing in skincare, I would recommend utilizing products specifically designed for sensitive skin. These products should contain gentle yet effective ingredients tailored to address mild acne. Some key components to look for include salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).


It's crucial to steer clear of products containing harsh chemicals or fragrances that may aggravate sensitivity. In Botswana, several products have proven to be beneficial for treating mild acne on sensitive skin:


Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Scrub: This product is enriched with gentle exfoliants and salicylic acid, aiding in unclogging pores and preventing breakouts.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Acne Treatment: Formulated with benzoyl peroxide and AHAs, this treatment effectively clears acne and prevents future breakouts.

Avene Cleanance Hydra Soothing Cleansing Cream: This gentle cleanser features thermal spring water and hydrating ingredients to soothe and moisturize sensitive skin.

Vichy Normaderm Anti-Acne Hydrating Lotion: A lightweight moisturizer infused with salicylic acid and hydrating elements, preventing breakouts and soothing redness.

It's essential to understand that skincare is not one-size-fits-all, as individual skin types and conditions vary. Therefore, I highly recommend consulting with a dermatologist for personalized recommendations and treatment options tailored to your specific needs.
