Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Micellar Water is a refreshing solution with APG Complex: an effective yet extra-mild make-up remover, cleanser and toner.
Alcohol-free, it gently but effectively removes all water-soluble eye and face make-up without irritating or disrupting skin’s natural moisture barrier. Quick and convenient to use, it helps prepare your skin for your topical acne treatment product or moisturiser and has been tested on, and proven to be compatible with, sensitive skin and eyes. Skin feels clean and soothed, is noticeably soft and supple and is well prepared for care products.
The Micellar Water is suitable for use alongside medical acne treatments and during pregnancy.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good tolerability and efficacy on blemish-prone skin. Suitable for sensitive skin.
The product was tested in controlled usage studies amongst females aged 18 to 75. The sample included volunteers with sensitive skin. The following results were recorded:
Yes. It has been clinically and opthalmologically tested and proven to be compatible with the sensitive skin around your eyes as well as with the eyes themselves. The eye contour area is particularly delicate and sensitive with a different pH level to facial skin. Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Micellar Water respects this difference and has been formulated to pH 7.4 - the optimum pH for the eye area.
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Micellar Water will remove all water soluble eye make-up. For the effective removal of waterproof make-up, we recommend Eucerin DermatoClean Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover.
Yes. Your skin works hard at renewing itself over night so, when you cleanse in the morning, you are removing sebum (the oily substance that your skin produces naturally to stop it drying out). At the end of the day you need to remove sebum, sweat and any make-up that you may have been wearing. Cleansing your skin also ensures that it is able to absorb the active ingredients in your care products.
Micelles are microscopic, spherical aggregates of surfactant molecules. Each surfactant molecule has a hydrophilic (water-loving) head that is attracted to water molecules and a hydrophobic (water-hating) tail that repels water and simultaneously attaches itself to the oil and grease in dirt. These opposing forces loosen dirt and suspend it in the water which is wiped away on the cotton pad. Micellar cleansers are used without water and are especially suitable for sensitive skin.
Micellar water is a cleanser, toner and make-up remover all in one intended for use when you need a quick and convenient cleansing solution. Toner is applied after using a dedicated cleanser such as Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleansing Gel and prepares skin for moisturiser and other care products.
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Toner is particularly suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin as it feels refreshing but, as it contains alcohol, we do not recommend that you use it during medical acne-treatment. If you are undergoing medical acne treatment and enjoy using a toner, then use Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Micellar Water to tone your skin after cleansing thoroughly with Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleansing Gel instead.
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 DermoPURIFYER Cleansing Gel with lukewarm water and follow with an appropriate toner or, for a quick and convenient solution, use Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Micellar Water. 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 DermoPURIFYER Micellar Water instead.
The care product you use depends on the severity of your acne and on the type of treatment you are undergoing.
If you are using medical treatment for acne, Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Adjunctive Soothing Cream helps to alleviate some of the symptoms such as intense dryness. It should be applied five minutes after your medication so the treatment can absorb fully.
If you have mild to moderate acne, but are not undergoing medical acne treatment, use a soothing and mattifying moisturiser such as Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Mattifying Fluid in the morning and evening.
For clearer and smoother-looking skin over time, you may also like to incorporate our skin renewal 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. You can use it before the mattifying fluid or on its own.
Sun protection is an important step in your morning routine. Blemishes can cause pigmentation issues if over-exposed to the sun, and acne medications can make blemish-prone skin even more sensitive to UV rays. Eucerin Sun Face Oil Control Dry Touch SPF50+ offers the levels of protection that your skin needs and should be applied before your cover-up and make-up. If you’re applying sun protection after a topical acne treatment wait five minutes to allow the treatment to fully absorb.
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.
