A new skincare approach for blemish-prone skin
Acne is not simply a skin condition. As it mainly affects the face, it can affect sufferers’ self-confidence and self-esteem, particularly during puberty when acne is most prevalent. Medical treatments can have side effects, such as drying out skin, and may not be necessary for everyone with blemish-prone skin. Eucerin has developed a range of dermo-cosmetic care products for oily and blemish-prone skin that can be used alongside standard medication, or on their own.
In developing optimum skin care suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin, Eucerin researchers needed to address the four key factors: hyperkeratosis (disrupted skin cell shedding), seborrhea (increased sebum production), microbial colonisation (increased bacteria proliferation) and irritated skin.
