Agir sur l’excès de sébum, les pores obstrués et les bactéries

Les imperfections résultent d’une production excessive de sébum et d’une desquamation insuffisante. Parmi les signes des peaux à tendance acnéique typiques, on peut citer la peau luisante, les pores dilatés ou obstrués et les imperfections. Tandis que la cause des imperfections demeure inconnue, les hormones et le stress sont des facteurs aggravants. Les programmes de soins SkinCeuticals à l’efficacité prouvée empêchent la production excessive de sébum. Ils éliminent aussi les cellules mortes accumulées à la surface de la peau et qui sont responsables de l’obstruction des pores afin de favoriser la correction des imperfections existantes et de minimiser leur réapparition.

Learn more about Acne


Acne is a skin condition characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed blemishes on the face, chest, back, shoulders, and beyond. Common in teenagers and adults alike, acne generally forms when a hair follicle becomes clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.


What causes acne?

A variety of factors contribute to acne, and a combination of bacteria, excess oil, and clogged pores are known to play a major role. Acne often begins with a buildup of dead skin cells and oil within a pore, which forms a “plug” that blocks its opening and creates an environment that allows P. acnes bacteria to multiply. The overgrowth of this bacteria leads to the redness and inflammation associated with blemishes, which can occur occasionally in one specific spot or consistently over a larger area of the face and/or body. This inflammation can also trigger more acne formation.

Hormonal fluctuations and stress can increase breakouts as well, and some clinical studies have found that certain foods like dairy and sugar (and other high-glycemic index foods) can also impact the complexion. In addition, it’s especially important for acne-prone skin types to choose targeted acne treatments and products that are “non-comedogenic,” which means they will not cause the pores to become clogged.

What products are good for acne-prone skin?

Acne products that promote the skin’s natural exfoliation are essential for any anti-acne regimen. Regular exfoliation with ingredients such as salicylic acid can help the buildup of dead cells that can cause the pores to become clogged. The exfoliation provided by acids and  retinol can also help improve the appearance of  skin discoloration caused by past acne, enhance skin smoothness, and promote more even, radiant skin tone.

SkinCeuticals acne products include  Blemish + Age Cleanser,  Blemish + Age Toner  and  Blemish + Age Defense  treatment serum. This range provides acid-based exfoliation to help clear away dead cells and help to prevent clogged pores, refine surface texture, and provide brightening benefits for the skin.  Retinol 0.3  in the evening (as tolerated) complements the results achieved with our Blemish + Age acne products by further enhancing cell turnover to maintain clear pores, while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and  discoloration  caused by sun damage and past acne marks.

All skin types—including oily and acne-prone—require extra hydration as well. A non-comedogenic, oil-free moisturizer with  hyaluronic acid, such as  Phyto Corrective, is ideal for hydrating the skin without clogging the pores.

Sunscreen  is another essential daily skincare product for acne-prone skin. First, it’s a myth that sun exposure helps clear up acne. Although a suntan may improve the appearance of acne at first, the damage and dryness caused by exposure to UV rays can cause an increased production of sebum, increasing the likelihood of an acne breakout . A properly formulated non-comedogenic sunscreen can help to protect oily and acne-prone skin from UV rays without clogging pores.

What is the best acne fighting ingredient?

There is no universal acne-fighting ingredient as different skin types have different needs. However, exfoliation with ingredients like salicylic acid can help prevent pores from becoming clogged with dead skin cells.

Retinol and exfoliating acids are particularly effective for those who are also concerned about visible signs of  aging. In addition to helping prevent clogged pores, these ingredients also help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and other age-related skin changes.

How do you get rid of dark spots from acne?

Lingering pigment changes in the form of dark spots are common after blemishes have healed—and  discoloration  caused by past pimples (also known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) can remain long after acne is under control. Retinol, as well as lipo-hyrdoxy acid, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid, exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin where post acne pigment resides to help promote even skin tone and restore radiance.

SkinCeuticals  Blemish + Age Defense  has been shown to improve active acne and post-acne dark spots. In a split-face, double-blind clinical trial, this product provided greater improvement in skin tone and blotchiness, as well as fine lines and rough skin texture, than a prescription retinoid.

Are chemical peels safe for skin with acne?

When performed by a physician or properly-trained skincare specialist, these professional treatments can help clear congested pores and improve post-acne dark spots by promoting the exfoliation of the skin’s uppermost layers. Chemical peels that incorporate salicylic acid penetrate the pores and dissolve excess sebum. Professional salicylic acid peels are generally superficial, so there’s little to no downtime—and a series of treatments is recommended for overall skin improvement.

Les imperfections peuvent parfois être la bataille d’une vie – et nombre de femmes et d’hommes souffrent encore de ce problème à un âge avancé.


La clé du succès d’un soin anti-imperfections est de briser le cycle qui entraîne la formation de celles-ci. Les produits SkinCeuticals interviennent justement à chaque étape du processus de leur formation. Les imperfections se forment lorsque les cellules mortes bouchent les pores, et il est donc nécessaire d’exfolier régulièrement la peau afin qu’elle reste nette. Puisque les exfoliants manuels risquent d’aggraver l’irritation associée aux imperfections, il est recommandé d’utiliser un exfoliant chimique à base d’acide glycolique. Afin d’empêcher l’obstruction des pores, il est important d’équilibrer la production de sébum de la peau. Les soins anti-imperfections de SkinCeuticals (nettoyants, toniques, sérums et masques) contiennent tous des actifs qui absorbent et minimisent la production de sébum tout en purifiant les pores. La présence de bactéries est aussi l’une des causes principales du développement des imperfections, et SkinCeuticals a mis au point une combinaison de principes actifs efficace pour agir sur celles-ci. Et comme de nombreux produits de soin anti-imperfections peuvent entraîner une sécheresse de la peau, SkinCeuticals a également formulé toute une gamme de soins hydratants non-comédogènes adaptés aux peaux à tendance acnéique.
