The root cause of PIH is increased melanin production, which is stimulated by inflammatory factors. The blemish triggers melanocytes - the melanin-producing cells - to release excessive pigment granules. These darken and discolor the formerly stressed area. The Eucerin DERMOPURE TRIPLE EFFECT SERUM contains Thiamidol, which counteracts and reverses hyperpigmentation by addressing the root cause: the formation of melanin in the skin. Additionally, the formulation contains salicylic acid to reduce blemishes and licochalcone A to prevent new blemishes from appearing. Thanks to sebum-regulation technology, it leaves the skin with a long-lasting matte look.
Eucerin® DERMOPURE PROTECTIVE FLUID SPF 30 helps protect post-acne marks from darkening due to sun exposure. It contains effective filters to block ultraviolet rays (A and B), with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30. Antibacterial decanediol helps prevent blemishes, and licochalcone A soothes irritated skin. The formula also features sebum-regulation technology for a long-lasting matte appearance. The products have enhanced efficacy when used in combination.
