Product info

Protective Fluid SPF 30 for blemish-prone skin with post-acne marks.

Acne is a fact of life for a huge cross-section of society. It affects up to 95% of adolescents and 40% of adults1. Many people experience post-acne marks (Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or PIH for short) long after the acute acne has vanished. After tackling blemishes, they are still stuck fighting their post-acne marks, which can persist for several years or even a decade2. Those post-acne marks left behind after blemishes heal can be even more aggravating and emotionally distressing than acne itself.  

About 1 in 2 people experience post-acne marks. Men and women are equally susceptible, and all skin types can get post-acne marks, although it is more prevalent in darker tones of skin3

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid SPF 30 enables you to prevent blemishes and finally beat post-acne marks with 3 key factors: 

  1. Anti-marks darkening: SPF 30 UVA/B filters protect from sun-induced darkening of post-acne marks and prevent their appearance.
  2. Anti-blemish: Antibacterial Decanediol helps to prevent blemishes and Licochalcone A soothes irritations. 
  3. Anti-shine: Sebum Regulating Technology delivers a long-lasting, dry, matt finish. 

The Protective Fluid SPF 30 has enhanced efficacy when used together with the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Triple Effect Serum.  
In fact, respondents in our studies report that the products not only improved their lives and provided relief, but also have the highest efficacy against post-acne marks of any products they have ever tried. “The combination beats post-acne marks,” say 95% of users4

    Recommendations for your daily skincare routine

    Cleanse and tone

    Cleanse and tone

    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. 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.

    Care

    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.

    If you have blemish-prone skin with post-acne marks you can also use the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Triple Effect Serum and Protective Fluid SPF 30 to reduce post-acne marks and protect them from appearing.

    Sun Protection

    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 Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch SPF30 and 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.

    Concealer and make-up

    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.

    Ingredients

    How Eucerin DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid works

    The DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid SPF 30 contains actives that address acne-prone skin with post-acne marks in 3 effective ways:

    1. Anti-marks: SPF 30 UVA/B filters protect from sun-induced darkening of post-acne marks and prevent their appearance

     

    2. Anti-blemish: Antibacterial Decanediol helps to prevent blemishes and Licochalcone A soothes irritations

    Licochalcone A is a powerful anti-inflammatory that works against micro-inflammation, soothes irritation and helps to reduce redness. Additionally, it has been shown that it inhibits C. acnes Biofilm-associated lipase activity (in vitro).  Decanediol further prevents bacterial growth of C. acnes.

    3. Anti-shine: Sebum-regulating technology with Carnitine and mattifying pigments deliver a long-lasting, dry, matt finish

    Sebum-regulating technology with L-Carnitine reduces excess sebum production (known as seborrhea).

    The Protective Fluid SPF 30 visibly protects from sun-induced darkening of post-acne marks and prevents their appearance. It prevents blemishes and controls shine. 

    Complements efficacy of Triple effect serum by helping to accelerate the post-acne marks fading time to provides physical & emotional relief that improves the quality of life.

    Enhanced efficacy when used together with DermoPurifyer Triple Effect Serum.


    FAQ (8)

      What are post-acne marks (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or PIH for short)?

      PIH is a type of hyperpigmentation of the skin that is mainly triggered by the way skin regenerates after inflammation. It can affect the face and body, typically especially UV-exposed areas, and appears as flat spots of hypercoloration. These range in colour from pink to red, brown or black, depending on skin tone and the depth of hypercoloration. The root cause is increased melanin production, the pigment that defines the colour of a person’s skin, which is stimulated by inflammatory factors. The blemish triggers melanocytes – the melanin-producing cells – to release excessive melanosomes (pigment granules). The excessive pigment granules darken and discolour the formerly stressed area. Once initial blemishes have subsided, spots of hypercoloration, so-called post-acne marks, can remain.

      Additionally, sun exposure can aggravate PIH symptoms, darkening the affected patches and prolonging the time it takes for them to fade. Most acne-related PIH will eventually fade over time, but it can take several years or even a decade until it is fully gone*.

      *Abad-Casintahan, F. et al., “Frequency and Characteristics of Acne-Related Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation.” J Dermatol. 2016; 43:826–828.




      Who is affected by post-acne marks?

      Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is common among many acne sufferers since a root cause for acne is inflammation. Those post-acne marks left behind after blemishes heal can be even more aggravating and emotionally distressing than acne itself. Men and women are equally susceptible, and all skin types can get post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, although it is more prevalent in darker tones of skin, with over 65% of the Black Americans experiencing it, followed by 53% of Hispanics, 47% of Asians and 25% of Caucasians*. This means that we need effective and tolerable skincare fighting both blemishes and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation for consumers all over the world.

      *Kaufman et al., Am J Clin Dermatol. 2018; 19:489–503, Perkins et al., JEADV. 2011; 25(9):1054–1060.


      How can post-acne marks be prevented?

      PIH is mainly triggered by the way skin regenerates after an inflammation. To prevent it, though there are no guarantees, avoid picking at or pressing your pimples. The best prevention is, however, to target acne-related PIH at the root, meaning preventing blemishes from appearing and getting inflamed. Use a mild but effective cleanser and use light, non-comedogenic skincare with anti-inflammatory ingredients, like licochalcone A and keratolytic salicylic acid, which are used in our Eucerin® Dermopure Triple Effect Serum to prevent pores from clogging. 

      Additionally, sun exposure can aggravate PIH symptoms, so we recommend sun protection. Limit the time you spend in the sun and keep out of the sun during its most intense hours. Wear protective clothing and sun hats whenever possible and apply a sun protection factor of at least 30, to protect marks from darkening and help prevent new marks from appearing by using specialised skincare like Eucerin® DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid SPF 30.



      What makes the DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid SPF 30 so effective on blemish-prone skin with post-acne marks?

      With a high sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 plus UVA, it effectively protects from harmful ultraviolet rays, which contribute to darkening of post-acne marks and prolonging the time for them to fade. In addition, it contains antibacterial decanediol, which helps to prevent blemishes, and licochalcone A to soothe irritation. It also contains sebum-regulating technology to leave the skin with a long-lasting matte and non-shiny look. 


      What is the benefit of using both DermoPurifyer post-acne marks products together?

      The products have enhanced efficacy when used in combination. This is one of the findings of our product-in-use study, among other user responses. In an eight-week study, three groups of 100 volunteers each tested the products: one group used Eucerin® DermoPurifyer Triple Effect Serum alone, one group used Eucerin® DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid SPF 30 alone, while the third group used a regimen of the two products in combination. 

      After eight weeks, the scores for the regimen cell were the strongest – after regular usage twice daily, volunteers even agreed that it has the highest efficacy of any solution they’ve ever tried* In fact, 95% of users say the combination finally beats their post-acne marks*.

      *Product in use study with 100 volunteers, eight weeks of regular usage twice daily.


      Is exposure to sunlight after applying the products a problem?

      No, there is no issue regarding the products in combination with sun exposure. At the same time, skin areas prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation should limit sun exposure, as sun exposure can aggravate symptoms, darkening the affected patches and prolonging the time it can take for them to fade. This is why we recommend using our Eucerin® DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid SPF 30 in addition to the Triple Effect Serum since it includes broad-spectrum ultraviolet radiation filters that protect from both UVA and UVB rays.


      Can I use the DermoPurifyer Protective Fluid SPF 30 underneath my make-up?

      Yes, you can use it underneath your make-up. In fact, 100% of the volunteers in our product in use study* confirmed it is suitable for usage underneath make-up.

      *100 volunteers, eight weeks of regular usage twice daily 

      Can I use the Protective Fluid SPF 30 underneath a face mask and does it work against Maskne (Mask-induced blemishes)?

      Yes, you can use the Protective Fluid SPF 30 underneath a face mask. In fact, 96% of the volunteers in our product in use study* confirmed it is suitable to be worn with a mask.

      When used in combination with the serum 96% of the volunteers also confirmed the product prevents blemishes even when wearing a face mask frequently. Learn more about Maskne (mask-induced blemishes) on the Maskne page.
