The innovative Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Skin Renewal Treatment has been specially formulated to reduce the appearance of pimples, papules and pustules as well as to fade acne marks.
It is suitable for all mild to moderate forms of acne and has a triple effect:
The formula also contains Licochalcone A which has been proven to reduce inflammation and help soothe irritation.
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Skin Renewal Treatment starts to visibly improve skin after just one week, revealing clearer and smoother-looking skin over time.
Can be used during pregnancy but should not be used by skin undergoing medical acne treatment.
* In a Product in Use (PIU) study 40 men and women (aged 12-44) with acne-prone skin used the product once a day (in the evening) for eight weeks. Results were assessed after one, two, four and eight weeks of use. The before and after images show the visible results after eight weeks of use.
In a self-assessment study, 80 women between the ages of 15 and 40 applied Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Skin Renewal Treatment every evening for eight weeks. They reported the following results:
The product’s pH plays an important role in its effectiveness and skin compatibility. Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Skin Renewal 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.
Tip: Try out on a small area of skin first. A slight tingling sensation may occur but, if your skin show a visible reaction, consult your dermatologist or pharmacist.
This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. As a result, we recommend you limit your exposure to the sun while using this product and for a week after. During that period, and after, be sure to apply sun protection in the morning. Try Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control SPF50+.
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Skin Renewal Treatment starts working from day one and results are visible after just one week.
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.
Cleanse skin in the morning and evening:
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.
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.
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 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.
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER is a range of effective dermo cosmetic solutions for impure skin. Its ingredient combination addresses the four key factors of impure skin: hyperkeratosis (disrupted skin cell shedding), seborrhea (increased sebum production), microbial colonisation (increased bacteria proliferation) and redness of the skin. Eucerin DermoPURIFYER products have been proven in clinical and dermatological studies to be both effective and very good for skin tolerability.
We are sorry to hear that you have not experienced the desired result following your use of the Eucerin Skin Renewal Treatment. The product has been formulated to assist with the reduction of blemishes and helps to prevent new blemishes. The combination of 10% Hydroxy Complex, Salicylic Acid and Licorice Extract assists to achieve this result. For more stubborn skin issues, this may take a little longer. We would also recommend that you use the Facial Cleansing Gel and Mattifying Cleanser as part of your skin-care regimen.
