Product line Cleanance WOMEN
Acne is not caused by any specific food; of course, it is good idea to eat everything in moderation… and to choose good dietary habits, always good for your skin and for your health in general.
The sun can be deceptive, pretending to be on your side sometimes. When you are in the sun, pimples dry out and blackheads are hidden under your tan. However, microcysts pop out after the vacation is over. When recent acne scars are exposed to the sun, they can leave unsightly and lingering brownish spots. In order to avoid these issues, start by not staying in the sun too long in the beginning and use quality sunscreens. If you are undergoing an acne treatment, ask your dermatologist for advice before going on vacation since certain treatments do not agree with sun exposure.
These visible scars are marks left by acne pimples. As soon as your acne is over, check with your dermatologist for treatment options (peeling, laser..) in order to get rid of them.
Don’t get overzealous about cleansing… Don’t try to “strip” your skin, all you’ll do is irritate it more. Be gentle with it. Use ultra-rich cleansing bars or soap-free gel cleansers. For removing make-up, use gentle daily cleansers.
Yes, but not just in any old way… Select noncomedogenic products, it is the least you can do. If you need to cover a few small scars, Avène Dermatological Laboratories have developed a complete line of effective and safe “coverage” products.
- Persistent acne is a continuation or relapse of the condition first experienced during adolescence.

Both types are often associated with redness, pigmentation changes and scarring.
