Eucerin ProAcne Solution Scrub

Unclogs pores and refines skin texture

A scrub with Lactic Acid and pore-refining micro particles that unclogs pores, reduces blackheads and blemishes and refines skin texture.

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 study confirmed: 

  • That Eucerin ProAcne Solution Scrub has a very positive effect on general skin condition. 
  • That the scrub is very well tolerated by those with blemish- and acne-prone skin or those with mild acne comedonica.

Frequently asked questions

How often should I use Eucerin ProAcne Solution Scrub?

We recommend you use the scrub once a week, instead of the Cleansing Gel. However, due to its mild formula the product is suitable for daily use so you can use it more frequently.

Is acne caused by poor hygiene?

No. There are a lot of myths surrounding the causes and triggers of acne and poor hygiene is one of them. Blemish-prone skin is not a sign of poor hygiene. On the contrary, washing skin too frequently with aggressive cleansing products can irritate skin even more. We recommend that you cleanse your face twice a day using mild cleansers specially formulated for oily, blemish-prone skin and which clinically and dermatologically proven to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells without drying skin. It’s also important not to fiddle with your spots and to keep your hands away from your face.

Will my acne clear up by itself as I get older?

For many people, acne clears after puberty but there are also people over 30 who are still suffering from acne. If your skin condition doesn’t improve please consult a dermatologist.

Can the pill help to prevent/heal acne?

Acne is associated with hormonal imbalances which can cause the sebaceous gland follicles to become more sensitive. For this reason, a contraceptive with an anti-androgen hormonal element can help. If you are in any doubt, consult your dermatologist or gynecologist.

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

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
