Cleanance WOMEN

Product line Cleanance WOMEN

Oily skin, spots, blackheads, marks: these blemish-related skin problems are not exclusive to teenagers' skin, and may persist or appear in adulthood. Pollution, stress and hormonal variations contribute to the appearance of these blemishes in adult women.


Questions / Answers
  • 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.

Acne affects 40% of women between the ages of 25 AND 40*. The clinical presentation of acne in adult women is different from that of teenagers. It occurs on less seborrheic skin, is more likely to affect the lower face, the jaw region and the chin (U-shaped acne). Depending on the time of onset of acne, two subtypes are distinguished in adult women:
- Persistent acne is a continuation or relapse of the condition first experienced during adolescence.
- Late-onset acne first appears in adulthood (more than 1 in 4 women are in this situation).
Both types are often associated with redness, pigmentation changes and scarring.
