Eucerin ProACNE Solution Scrub is an oil-free skin peel with Lactic Acid that removes impurities without drying out the skin. Suitable for face and body, the exfoliating action of natural micro particles works against dead skin cells − one of the key causes of blackheads and spots − and gently cleanses skin and removes make-up.
Pores are unclogged, impurities and blackheads are reduced and skin texture is visibly smooth and refined.
The product has been specially formulated for oily and acne prone skin which is not undergoing medication and can be used during pregnancy.
The product’s effectiveness was tested in a six-week study in Germany with a sample of 16 women and 4 men aged between 13 and 34 (average age 18.5 years).
The study confirmed:
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
The Eucerin ProACNE range has been specially formulated to work against the main causes of blemish- and acne-prone skin:
The formulas include:
The range includes mild but effective cleansers and a selection of care products specially formulated for acne-prone skin many of which are suitable for use alongside medical acne treatment.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove that the products are compatible with blemish- and acne-prone skin and very effective at treating and relieving symptoms.
