Azelaic acid cream is a topical antibacterial solution that helps the skin to naturally renew itself more quickly and efficiently. Thus, it reduces the formation of pimples and blackheads. Aziderm cream is used to get relief from the symptoms like bumps, redness, lesions, etc. associated with different types of acne. Because of its anti-bacterial nature, it is also used to kill bacteria that cause rosacea or acne in many people.
How Does Azelaic Acid Cream Work?
Firstly, azelaic acid cream penetrates the skin and kicks off the growth of bacteria directly responsible for the inflammation and irritation of the skin. Secondly, this lotion is also of great help in preventing the bacteria included in the production of acne promoting fatty acids.
These two factors make this product the ultimate destroyer of blackheads and pimples. It also hinders the formation of new skin cells in the so-called comedones, thus preventing the further growth of acne.
