This treatment is suitable for all mild to moderate forms of acne. For sensitive to extremely sensitive skin, we recommend consulting with a dermatologist before choosing your skin care routine and treatments.
The Eucerin DermoPurifyer skin renewal treatment has a very light smell.
The brand recommends using this product once a day, preferably in the evening, after cleansing your skin with a gel. Apply a pea-sized amount to the face and massage the product gently into skin.
Important: Try out on a small area of skin first. A slight tingling sensation may occur but, if your skin shows a visible reaction, consult a dermatologist.
Pro-tip: Always use sun protection when using this treatment as it contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids which is known to increase skin sensitivity to the sun. Also, we recommend limiting sun exposure while using this product and for a week after.
The Eucerin treatment is meant to unclog pores, visibly reduce blemishes and help prevent their re-appearance. It has a triple effect thanks to its combination of peeling agents − Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Polyhydroxy Acid – which help to resurface skin, unclog pores, reduce bacteria, remove dead skin cells and prevent new blemishes from appearing. The formula also contains Licochalcone A which has been proven to reduce inflammation and help soothe irritation.
Between a couple of days to a week, you will find that the treatment starts to visibly improve your skin, revealing a clearer and smoother looking skin over time and long-lasting. The skin is left clearer and excess sebum and spots are no longer an issue. Note that the DermoPurifyer range of products does not actively remove pimple scarring or dark marks, but rather diminishes sebum and dries out pimples and blemishes. Once you are satisfied with your skin’s sebum level, you can then proceed to work on marks and scarring with another product. It’s also important to know that while it can be used during pregnancy, it should not be used on skin undergoing medical acne treatment.
We definitely recommend the use of this range of Eucerin products and commend the brand on its access to information: the Eucerin website contains great advice and clinical trials which you can read in order to find out more about the results of Eucerin products and their use on different types of skin and skin related issues.
