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.

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

Can I use Eucerin ProAcne Solution Cleansing Gel if I am already taking acne medication?

Yes, all Eucerin ProAcne Solution products can be combined with common acne therapy. If you are at all concerned, talk to your dermatologist, pharmacist or doctor before applying.

Is acne caused by dirty skin?

Although dirt isn’t a trigger for acne, it is important to cleanse skin twice a day with a mild, non-dehydrating facial cleanser in order to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells as well as any dirt and left-over make up. It’s equally important, however, not to over cleanse with aggressive cleansing products as this can irritate skin even more.

Is acne genetic?

A genetic predisposition certainly counts. If both parents had acne in their youth there is a greater likelihood that their children will also experience acne.

Eucerin ProACNE Solution Effective skin care products for oily/ acne-prone skin

The Eucerin ProAcne Solution range has been specially formulated to work against the main causes of oil/acne-prone skin:

  • micro-inflammation: the root cause of the acne cycle 
  • excess sebum production which is also known as seborrhea
  • hyperkeratosis (a thickening of the external layers of skin) which then leads to blackheads and whiteheads - bacterial growth which leads to visible inflammation in the form of papules and pustules

The formulas include: 

  • Licochalcone A: a highly effective anti-inflammatory that soothes irritations and helps to reduce redness
  • Salicylic Acid: an antibacterial ingredient with a comedolytic effect that reduces blemishes and prevents them from re-appearing 
  • Sebum-regulating technology: reduces sebum production

The ProAcne Solution AI Clearing Treatment also contains:

  • 10% Hydroxy Complex: a highly effective combination of peeling agents (Glycolic-, Salicylic- and Polyhydroxy Acids) that helps to resurface skin, unclog pores, reduce P. acnes (bacteria) and remove dead skin cells

The range includes mild but effective cleansers and a selection of care products specially formulated for oily/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 oily/acne-prone skin and very effective at treating and relieving symptoms
