Holding can upright, dispense Enzoclear™ Foam into palm of hand and apply to the affected area once daily, or as directed by a physician. For facial acne, use a dollop the size of a marble. For acne on either the back or chest, use a dollop the size of a whole walnut. Rub in until completely absorbed. Wipe off any excess foam from actuator after use.
Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two to three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or once every other day. Wash hands with soap and water after use. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.
