Daily Facial Sunscreen for Oily and Acne-prone skin
Eucerin ProACNE Solution Day MAT Whitening is a high SPF daily facial sunscreen formulated for the specific needs of oily and acne prone skin. This Eucerin acne formula provides superior photo protection against sun-induced skin damage and contains an active solution to improve skin condition.
It has a highly effective and photostable UVA/UVB filter system, which provides reliable protection. This is compliant with Cosmetics Europe - The Personal Care Association, formerly known as Colipa.
The formula also provides biological cell protection through a combination of Licochalcone A and Glycyrrhentinic Acid. Licochalcone A is the lead compound of Glycyrrhiza inflate root extract and is a potent anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory ingredient that protects the skin cells against damage caused by free radicals. Glycyrrhentinic Acid, derived from Glycyrrhiza glabra protects DNA by supporting the skin’s own DNA protection and repair mechanisms.
Sebum-regulating L-Carnitine, an amino acid derivate, and mattifying lipid-absorbing pigments combine in the formula’s specially developed Oil Control Technology. Together they leave an immediate and long lasting dry matt finish on the skin even in hot and humid conditions.
The efficacy of the mattifying formula with sebum-regulating L-Carnitine and lipid-absorbing pigments was further tested and assessed in product in use (PIU) studies.
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.
Acne is primarily an inflammatory disease. Inflammation is present at all stages of acne − ranging from non-visible micro-inflammation to visibly inflamed papules and pustules1
