Soothes and intensely moisturises skin undergoing medical acne treatment
A moisturiser for acne prone skin that alleviates the side effects of acne medication. It’s intensively hydrating, non-sticky formula soothes irritations, reduces tightness and helps you to regain control over demanding blemish-prone skin.
In a self-assessment study a sample of 58 men and women aged between 16 and 43 (average age 24) applied Eucerin DERMOPURIFYER Adjunctive Soothing Cream twice a day for two weeks. At the time of the study, all respondents had been undergoing medical acne treatment (with topical Benzoyl Peroxide, topical Tretinoin, topical Adapalene or oral Isotretinoin) for at least two weeks.
The patients reported the following results:
Yes. The product can be used on an ongoing basis even when you are not having medical treatment for acne. If you have dry, blemish-prone skin it’s likely to be very suitable, but if your skin stops being so dry you may find it too rich and need a lighter product. Try Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Mattifying Fluid.
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Adjunctive Soothing Cream is a moisturiser for acne-prone skin specially formulated for people undergoing medical acne treatment.
One of the side effects of acne medication is that it frequently causes severe dryness in skin. This intensely moisturising, non-greasy cream soothes these symptoms. Ceramides support skin’s protective barrier and reduce moisture loss, SymSitive* helps to calm irritation such as stinging and burning directly at source and Licochalcone A helps to reduce redness. The formula helps to bring demanding, blemish- and acne-prone skin under control and it feels smooth and supple after the first application.
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Adjunctive Soothing Cream is suitable for use during pregnancy.

Cleanse skin in the morning and evening:
Use gentle cleansing products such as Eucerin DERMOPURIYER 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 DERMOPURIYER 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.
