Get Clear Skin In Just 30 Days

Dealing with acne? Read this.


Acne can be tough to deal with, especially if you have sensitive skin. To test the effectiveness of their products, dermatologist-recommended skincare brand Eucerin got real girls who’ve been battling acne for years to take part in the Eucerin 30-day challenge, where they used skincare products from Eucerin’s DermoPURIFYER range for a month and tracked their progress. Scroll through the gallery below for their reviews!

Has your acne worsened after switching skincare products? Dr Mark Tang, consultant dermatologist at Mt Alvernia Medical Centre’s The Skin Specialists and Laser Clinic, shares two common reasons why:

  1. It might not be acne after all! Conditions like rosacea, fungal folliculitis or even sunlight allergy can cause acne-like lesions. Also, for those with sensitive skin, acne products can also cause skin irritation and redness*, which can further worsen the inflammation.”
  2. Bad or severe inflammatory acne may need more than just topical ‘over-the-counter’ creams. In this case, it may be necessary to start using prescription-only medications, such as oral antibiotics or isotretinoin, which might help control the acne more effectively.”

*If this happens, stop using the products immediately and consult a dermatologist for proper assessment and treatment.

Eucerin is available at all leading pharmacies, Guardian, Watsons, Unity, NTUC FairPrice and major hospitals.
