Frequently asked questions

Are blemishes caused by poor hygiene?

Blemishes are not a sign of poor bodily hygiene. On the contrary: too frequent cleansing of the skin with aggressive cleansing products can irritate the skin even more. Nevertheless, you should take care to cleanse your skin twice daily with a mild, nondehydrating facial cleanser in order to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells from the skin.

Are blemishes a sign of an allergy?

Blemishes are not an allergic reaction to particular foods or external stimulation. Allergies manifest themselves characteristically in different ways and can usually be clearly identified as such.

Will my blemishes clear up on its own as I grow older?

Usually the oily, blemish-prone skin get better with increasing age once you are past puberty.  Although, some people suffer after the age of 30. If you have any concerns or you do not see an improvement, please contact your doctor or speak to your pharmacist.

Do I need to apply additional sun block if I am already using Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Adjunctive Hydrating Care SPF 30?

Normally this is not necessary. However, if you are outdoors for a prolonged time and are spending time in water or sweating you should reapply your sun protection regularly.

Does the sun help against blemishes?

Contrary to popular belief, the sun's UV radiation has a cell-stimulating effect and leads to increased sebum production and a plugging of the sebaceous-gland follicle. So actually, the sun can aggravate existing blemishes. What's more, some therapeutic drugs make the skin prone to light sensitivity. The sun's rays should therefore be enjoyed in moderation and with adjusted protection. Nevertheless, some people do benefit from light therapies (often blue or blue and red light treatments). Please consult a doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Is oily or blemish-prone skin inherited?

Yes. Genetic predisposition plays a large part. If both parents suffered from oily or blemishes during their adolescence, then there is a greater likelihood that their children will also.

My favourite day cream

I started using this cream when I was going through my acne treatment four years ago. I have not got acne anymore, but I have still continued using the cream on a daily basis. I have oily and blemish-prone skin and this cream is simply perfect because it has a SPF and it does not leave oily traces and gets absorbed quite quickly. The cream is perfect for those who have oily skin and no acne. I love the fact that it does not contain fragrance. I can really recommend it and I can only hope that Eucerin's team will not change the formula.


I was recommended this by my dermatologist to use alongside isotretinoin tablets for my acne as dryness is a common side effect to the drug. I used this once daily and it stopped my skin being irritated and dry within the next few days! It's perfect as a make up base too as it acts as a barrier, love it and continue to use it :)
Bocha ,


Guys big up to your products cause they did wonders to me. I was using a certain product since high school just to brighten my skin. It was fine for 10 yrs but when I try to use other products my skin will be very ichy nd dark until I go back to that product again. Now I have blemishes nd when I try to stop using it they come back, when I continue they disappear but my skin is very dull. Now I use this product nd is been a month, my skin is not ichy but the blemishes are still there. Am just happy that I dont use that product any more and am sticking with Eucerin and hopefully the results will be good.
