Over four weeks participants applied Active Concentrate in combination with Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care. Each was then tested twice during the research period.

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.

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.

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.

Does the birth control pill help against acne?
