Frequently Asked Questions

Should I use the Eucerin Dermo Pure Cover Stick before or after make-up?

You can, of course, use the Cover Stick without applying make-up. However, if you are using it in combination with foundation you should apply the Cover Stick first. You can use it again after you make-up, and re-apply it during the day, as/when additional coverage is required.

Can I cover up the dark circles under my eyes with the Cover Stick?

We don’t recommend that you use Eucerin DERMOPURE Cover Stick in your eye area because it contains Salicylic Acid which has a keratolytic effect and which could cause sensitivity in the eye area.

Does the Cover Stick block pores?

No. The Cover Stick is non-comedogenic which means it does not contain any substances that might contribute to the formation of blackheads or spots. The same is true for all products in the Eucerin DERMOPURE range.

Recommendations for your daily skincare routine

Cleanse your skin twice a day

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 DERMOPURE 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 DERMOPURE Micellar Water instead.

Apply moisturizing fluid for acne-prone skin before using make up and pimple concealer

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 DERMOPURE 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 DERMOPURE 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 before applying make-up and antibacterial concealer

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 SPF30 and 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 acne concealer before or after your make up

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.

Eucerin DERMOPURE Effective skin care products for blemish- and acne-prone skin

Acne is primarily an inflammatory disease. Inflammation is present at all stages of acne − ranging from non-visible micro-inflammation to visibly inflamed papules and pustules1

The Eucerin DERMOPURE range has been specially formulated to work against the main causes of blemish- and acne-prone skin:

  • micro-inflammation: the root cause of the acne cycle
  • excess sebum production which is also known as seborrhea
  • hyperkeratosis (a thickening of the external layers of skin) which then leads to blackheads and whiteheads
  • bacterial growth which leads to visible inflammation in the form of papules and pustules

The formulas include:

  • Licochalcone A: a highly effective anti-inflammatory that soothes irritations and helps to reduce redness
  • Salicylic Acid: an antibacterial ingredient with a comedolytic effect that reduces blemishes and prevents them from re-appearing
  • Sebum-regulating technology: reduces sebum production

The DERMOPURE Skin Renewal Treatment also contains:

  • 10% Hydroxy Complex: a highly effective combination of peeling agents (Glycolic-, Salicylic- and Polyhydroxy Acids) that helps to resurface skin, unclog pores, reduce P. acnes (bacteria) and remove dead skin cells

The range includes mild but effective cleansers and a selection of care products specially formulated for acne-prone skin many of which are suitable for use alongside medical acne treatment.

Clinical and dermatological studies prove that the products are compatible with blemish- and acne-prone skin and very effective at treating and relieving symptoms
