Cleansing Gel for acne-prone skin

Soap- and fragrance-free, Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel is a non-comedogenic daily face wash for blemish- and acne-prone skin. With 6% Ampho-Tensides, it cleanses skin gently but effectively removing dirt, make-up and any excess sebum. Thanks to its antibacterial properties, the gel eliminates skin bacteria and prevents bacterial growth. 

The cleansing gel can be used alongside medical acne treatment and during pregnancy.

Clinical Studies

Clinical and dermatological studies have confirmed excellent skin tolerability and a mild cleansing effect when used on blemish- and acne-prone skin.

 

MAIN FINDINGS

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:

  • 96%: skin feels comfortable after regular application
  • 94%: silky smooth texture
  • 93%: reduces feelings of tightness
  • 91%: soothes skin under medical acne treatment
  • 91%: spreads easily
  • 91%: skin feels softer after the first application
  • 90%: alleviates side-effects of acne treatment
  • 89%: the cream reduces stinging and burning

Frequently asked questions

Will the Cleansing Gel remove my make-up completely?

It is a good idea to remove eye make-up, especially the water-resistant type, with a dedicated make-up remover (e.g. Eucerin DermatoClean Eye make-up remover) before thoroughly cleansing skin with the Cleansing Gel.

Can I use the cleansing gel with an electric cleansing brush?

Yes, of course, but be very careful cleaning your skin in this way if you are undergoing medical acne therapy.

Is acne caused by having dirty skin?

This is a common myth but it’s not true. It is, however, important to choose products that have been specially formulated for blemish- and acne-prone skin – mild but effective cleansing gels are much more suitable than harsh soap-based alternatives.

My skin feels tight after cleansing. Is that normal?

Tightness can be a sign of dry skin. If your skin feels tight be sure to thoroughly moisturise after cleansing. Consider using one of the moisturisers in the Eucerin DermoPurifyer  range.

I’ve used Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel in the past. What is the difference between that and Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel?

Nothing. It’s just a new name and new packaging. The formula is proven to be highly effective and needed no changes.

Can I use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel while I’m undergoing medical acne treatment?

Yes. The Cleansing Gel can be used alongside your acne therapy treatment. If you are concerned, consult your doctor, dermatologist or pharmacist before use.

Is acne genetic?

A genetic predisposition certainly counts. If both parents had acne in their youth there is a greater likelihood that their children will also experience acne.

  • Use the cleansing gel as a first step in your skin care routine - preferably twice daily:morning and evening
  •  Use a cherry-sized amount and work it into a lather in your hand with a little water
  • Massage into your face.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water
  • Avoid contact with your eyes

Use non comedogenic face wash for cleansing

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.

Apply moisturizer after using cleansing gel for acne-prone skin

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.

Use 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 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.  

Apply moisturizer for acne prone skin before using your make up and/or concealer

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.
