Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Toner is applied daily as part of a cleanse, clear and care routine. Its anti-bacterial formula contains 2% Lactic Acid active system which gently unclogs pores without overdrying, reduces the growth of bacteria (one of the four factors of impure skin) and prevents blemishes. It is particularly effective in the T-Zone and other problem areas and can be used alongside common acne medication.

Frequently asked questions
Is acne caused by poor hygiene?
Acne is not a sign of poor bodily hygiene. On the contrary: too frequent cleansing of the skin with aggressive cleansing products can irritate the skin even more. Nevertheless, you should take care to cleanse your skin twice daily with a mild, nondehydrating facial cleanser in order to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells from the skin. One should, in any case, avoid "fiddling around" with your fingers on the acne symptoms.
Is acne an allergy?
Acne is not an allergic reaction to particular foods or external stimulation. Allergies manifest themselves characteristically in different ways and can thus be clearly identified as such.
Will my acne clear up on its own as I grow older?
Usually the acne symptoms get better with increasing age once you are past puberty. Although, some patients suffer from acne also after the age of 30. If you do not see an improvement, please contact a dermatologist.
I have been using Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Toner for several days but my skin is still impure. What am I doing wrong?
Blemished skin can recover, but not overnight. The more severe it is, the longer and more intensive the treatment needs to be. Be patient. Persevere with your cleanse, clear and care routine and you will start to see improvement to your skin.
Can I use Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Toner on my back?
Yes. Acne symptoms on your back are treated exactly the same way as on your face.
Is acne inherited?
Yes. Genetic predisposition plays a large part in acne. If both parents suffered from acne during their adolescence, then there is a greater likelihood that their children will also develop acne.
