Eucerin Blemish Prone Skincare Routine
An innovative and effective range of products for blemish- and acne-prone skin which can be used alongside, or instead of, medical acne treatment.
The care product you use depends on the severity of your blemishes and on the type of treatment you are undergoing.
If you are using medical treatment for blemished skin, Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Adjunctive Soothing Cream helps to alleviate some of the symptoms such as intense dryness. It should be applied five minutes after your medication so the treatment can absorb fully.
If you have mild to moderately blemished skin, but are not undergoing medical treatment, use a soothing and mattifying moisturiser such as Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Mattifying Fluid in the morning and evening.
For clearer and smoother-looking skin over time, you may also like to incorporate our skin renewal treatment into your routine. It is suitable for all blemish-prone skin that is not undergoing medical treatment for blemished skin and should be used once a day only − ideally in the evening. You can use it before the mattifying fluid or on its own.
Tone and Cleanse
Cleanse skin in the morning and evening:
In the Morning:
to remove the sebum and dead skin cells that have accumulated overnight.
In the Evening:
to remove make-up and free skin from the day’s dirt
Use gentle cleansing products such as
Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control 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 medication for blemished skin 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 DermoPurifyer Oil Control Micellar Water instead.
Concealer & Make-up Remover
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.
Sun protection is an important step in your morning routine. Blemishes can cause pigmentation issues if over-exposed to the sun, and medications for blemished skin can make the skin even more sensitive to UV rays. Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch SPF50+ offers the levels of protection that your skin needs and should be applied before your cover-up and make-up. If you’re applying sun protection after a topical blemish treatment wait five minutes to allow the treatment to fully absorb.
