Frequently asked questions

Should I use the Eucerin ProAcne Solution Cover Stick before or after make-up?

You can, of course, use the Cover Stick without applying make-up. However, if you are using it in combination with foundation you should apply the Cover Stick first. You can use it again after you make-up, and re-apply it during the day, as/when additional coverage is required.

Can I cover up the dark circles under my eyes with the Cover Stick?

We don’t recommend that you use Eucerin ProAcne Solution Cover Stick in your eye area because it contains Salicylic Acid which has a keratolytic effect and which could cause sensitivity in the eye area.

Does the Cover Stick block pores?

No. The Cover Stick is non-comedogenic which means it does not contain any substances that might contribute to the formation of blackheads or spots. The same is true for all products in the Eucerin ProAcne range.



  • Cover the affected area with a thin layer one to three times a day as required. Follow with make-up as appropriate. 
  • Do not apply to your lips or to the skin under your eyes 
  • Avoid contact with eyes

Recommendations for your daily skincare routine

Cleanse your skin twice a day

Cleanse skin in the morning and evening: 

  • am: to remove the sebum and dead skin cells that have accumulated overnight 
  • pm: to remove make-up and free skin from the day’s dirt 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 Micellar Water instead.

Apply moisturizing fluid for acne-prone skin before using make up and pimple concealer

The care product you use depends on the severity of your acne and on the type of treatment you are undergoing.

For clearer and smoother-looking skin over time, you may also like to incorporate our 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.

Apply acne concealer before or after your make up

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. Find out more in make-up for blemish-prone skin.

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
