An acid peel for acne-prone skin
The innovative ProACNE Solution A.I Clearing Treatment has been specially formulated to reduce the appearance of acne, papules and pustules as well as to fade acne marks or acne scars .
It is suitable for all mild to moderate forms of acne and has a triple effect:
The formula also contains Licochalcone A which has been proven to reduce inflammation and help soothe irritation.
Eucerin ProACNE Solution A.I Clearing Treatment starts to visibly improve skin after just one week, revealing clearer and smoother-looking skin over time.
Can be used during pregnancy but should not be used by skin undergoing medical acne treatment.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove good skin tolerance and care effectiveness in blemish- and acne-prone skin.
* In a Product in Use (PIU) study 40 men and women (aged 12-44) with acne-prone skin used the product once a day (in the evening) for eight weeks. Results were assessed after one, two, four and eight weeks of use. The before and after images show the visible results after eight weeks of use.
In a self-assessment study, 80 women between the ages of 15 and 40 applied Eucerin ProAcne Solution every evening for eight weeks. They reported the following results:
If used regularly skin will start looking better after just one week.
ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment combines very well with anti-ageing skincare. We recommend that you use it, in the evenings, alongside Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Night.
In principle, yes. But test the product first to ensure it is well tolerated by your skin. You can do this by using a small amount on a small area of skin and leaving it on overnight. If you experience a slight stinging sensation, don’t worry − that just shows that the product is working.
We do not recommend using the serum while you are undergoing medical treatment for acne.
If your skin appears irritated we recommend that you stop using the product. Then try reapplying the product every other day (in the evening only). If irritation persists, consult your dermatologist or pharmacist.
We use a gentle combination of acids that makes the product suitable for use every evening from day one. As with all products, however, it is a good idea to test the product on a small area of your skin before applying it to your full face.
We recommend that you use the product in the evening because its peeling effect will make your skin more sensitive to UV rays, and more prone to sunburn. And, even after evening use, it’s important you give your skin adequate protection from the sun the next day. We recommend Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control SPF30 or 50+.
The product’s pH plays an important role in its effectiveness and skin compatibility. ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment has a pH of between 3.7 and 3.9. This low, mildly acidic pH is perfect for the role of this product as it increases its antibacterial effect and its ability to remove dead skin cells.
ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment can be used alongside other care products such as moisturisers and anti-ageing treatments. We recommend that you use the Skin Renewal Treatment first and in the evening. If you use the Skin Renewal Treatment in the morning be sure to follow with a sunscreen such as Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch SPF30 or 50+.
Tip: Try out on a small area of skin first. A slight tingling sensation may occur but, if your skin show a visible reaction, consult your dermatologist or pharmacist.
This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. As a result, we recommend you limit your exposure to the sun while using this product and for a week after. During that period, and after, be sure to apply sun protection in the morning.
Cleanse skin in the morning and evening:
Use gentle cleansing products such as Eucerin ProACNE Solution Cleansing Gel with lukewarm water and follow with an appropriate toner. You may also benefit from using a scrub once a week to unclog pores and refine skin texture.
We do not recommend using an alcohol-based toner and the scrub alongside acne medication as Isotretinoin, Benzoyl Peroxide and Antibiotics can make skin more sensitive. If you like the refreshing feel of a toner, try the alcohol-free Eucerin ProACNE Solution Acne & Make-up Cleansing Water instead.
The care product you use depends on the severity of your acne and on the type of treatment you are undergoing.
If you have mild to moderate acne, but are not undergoing medical acne treatment, use a soothing and mattifying moisturiser such as Eucerin ProACNE Solution A.I. Matt Fluid in the morning and evening.
For clearer and smoother-looking skin over time, you may also like to incorporate our ProAcne Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment into your routine. It is suitable for all blemish-prone skin that is not undergoing medical acne treatment and should be used once a day only − ideally in the evening. You can use it before the mattifying fluid or on its own.
Sun protection is an important step in your morning routine. Blemishes can cause pigmentation issues if over-exposed to the sun, and acne medications can make blemish-prone skin even more sensitive to UV rays.
If you’re applying sun protection after a topical acne treatment wait five minutes to allow the treatment to fully absorb.
Cover blemishes and even out skin tone with foundation and/or a concealer. Choose products that are non-comedogenic (i.e. that will not block pores) and, ideally, ones that contain ingredients that work to improve the condition of blemish-prone skin. Be sure to remove all make-up before you go to bed.
