Frequently asked questions

If I use the serum daily when can I expect to see an improvement?

If used regularly skin will start looking better after just one week.

Can I use the serum in addition to my normal moisturiser and, if so, which should I use first?

Eucerin ProAcne Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment can be used alongside other care products such as moisturisers and anti-ageing treatments. We recommend that you use the A.I. Clearing Treatment first and in the evening.

I have both acne-prone and sensitive skin. Can I use Eucerin ProAcne A.I. Clearing Treatment?

In principle, yes. But test the product first to ensure it is well tolerated by your skin. You can do this by using a small amount on a small area of skin and leaving it on overnight. If you experience a slight stinging sensation, don’t worry − that just shows that the product is working.

I’m over 30 and would like to use something that treats wrinkles. Is this serum suitable?

Eucerin ProAcne A.I. Clearing Treatment combines very well with anti-ageing skincare. We recommend that you use it, in the evenings, alongside Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Night.

Can I use the serum alongside Benzoyl Peroxide, Antibiotics and acne treatments with retinoids?

We do not recommend using the serum while you are undergoing medical treatment for acne.

Do I need to use sun protection the day after applying this treatment?

We recommend that you use the product in the evening because its peeling effect will make your skin more sensitive to UV rays, and more prone to sunburn. And, even after evening use, it’s important you give your skin adequate protection from the sun the next day.

Why is the pH of the Eucerin ProAcne A.I. Clearing Treatment important?

The product’s pH plays an important role in its effectiveness and skin compatibility. Eucerin ProAcne A.I. Clearing Treatment has a pH of between 3.7 and 3.9. This low, mildly acidic pH is perfect for the role of this product as it increases its antibacterial effect and its ability to remove dead skin cells.

If my skin looks red in the morning should I continue using this product overnight?

If your skin appears irritated we recommend that you stop using the product. Then try reapplying the product every other day (in the evening only). If irritation persists, consult your dermatologist or pharmacist.

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
