Frequently asked questions

Is acne caused by poor hygiene?

Acne is not a sign of poor bodily hygiene. On the contrary: too frequent cleansing of the skin with aggressive cleansing products can irritate the skin even more. Nevertheless, you should take care to cleanse your skin twice daily with a mild, nondehydrating facial cleanser in order to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells from the skin. One should, in any case, avoid "fiddling around" with your fingers on the acne symptoms.

Is acne an allergy?

Acne is not an allergic reaction to particular foods or external stimulation. Allergies manifest themselves characteristically in different ways and can thus be clearly identified as such.

Will my acne clear up as I grow older?

Usually the acne-related problems reduce with age. Although, some patients suffer from acne also after the age of 30. If you do not see an improvement, please contact a dermatologist.

I have been using Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Toner for several days but my skin is still blemished. What am I doing wrong?

Blemished skin can recover, but not overnight.Be patient. Persevere with your cleanse, clear and care routine and you will start to see improvements in your skin's condition.

Can I use Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Toner on my back?

Yes. Acne-related problems on your back are treated exactly the same way as on your face.

Is acne inherited?

Yes. Genetic predisposition plays a large part in acne. If both parents suffered from acne during their adolescence, then there is a greater likelihood that their children will also develop acne.
