In a Product in Use (PIU) study 40 men and women (aged 12-44) with acne-prone skin used the product once a day (in the evening) for eight weeks. Results were assessed after one, two, four and eight weeks of use. The before and after images show the visible results after eight weeks of use.

How to use


  • Use once a day. Preferably in the evening.
  • Apply a small amount (about the size of a pea) to a thoroughly cleansed face
  • Massage gently into skin
  • Follow with an appropriate care product such as Eucerin DERMOPURE Mattifying Fluid
  • Avoid contact with your eyes

Tip: Try out on a small area of skin first. A slight tingling sensation may occur but, if your skin show a visible reaction, consult your dermatologist or pharmacist.

This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. As a result, we recommend you limit your exposure to the sun while using this product and for a week after. During that period, and after, be sure to apply sun protection in the morning. Try Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control SPF30 or 50+.


Recommendations for your daily skincare routine

Cleanse and tone

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 it can make skin more sensitive. If you like the refreshing feel of a toner, try the alcohol-free Eucerin DERMOPURE 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 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.

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 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.

Concealer and 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.

How Eucerin DERMOPURE Skin Renewal Treatment works

Eucerin DERMOPURE Skin Renewal Treatment contains a unique and innovative 10% Hydroxy Complex. This complex is rich in effective but gentle, tried and tested, peeling agents.

These peeling agents are Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs):

  • AHAs are commonly present in fruits and so are often referred to as fruit acids. The AHA we use is Glycolic Acid which is the most commonly used in skincare products and by dermatologists.
  • The BHA in our formula is Salicylic Acid. It has been used to treat skin for more than 2,000 years and, as well as being an effective peeling agent, it is proven to help reduce blemishes and pimples and prevent new blemishes from appearing. This makes it particularly appropriate for blemish- and acne-prone skin.
  • In nature, many PHAs are by-products of the process of carbohydrate metabolism in the body. This is true of the PHA we use in our formula - Gluconolactone. It is widely used, and we have chosen it because it is both effective as a peeling agent and gentle on skin. 

These effective acids work together to reduce the cohesion between dead skin cells, thereby exfoliating (or removing) them from skin’s surface (a process known as desquamation) and accelerating the natural process of epidermal and dermal renewal resulting in resurfaced skin. 

The 10% Hydroxy Complex also works to unclog pores and significantly reduce P. acnes (the bacteria on skin’s surface which colonises the plugged pore and causes the inflammation that leads to papules, pustules, nodules and cysts).

The Complex is complemented by the Licochalcone A also present in the Eucerin DERMOPURE Skin Renewal Treatment formula. Licochalcone A reduces inflammation and soothes irritation ensuring the product is effective and gentle on skin.
