When taking a stand against acne, it’s important to consider everything that comes in contact with your face. This includes your skin care products as well as your makeup, and the two can either work together to help you achieve your clear-skin goals—or work against you. Opting for non-comedogenic products is a great first step, but putting your trust in powerful, proven skin care and dermatologist-tested, high-performance coverage can help improve your complexion and your confidence.

That’s why La Roche-Posay and Dermablendhave joined forces to help guide you to a holistic, customized acne solution.

Skin Care

La Roche-Posay’s Effaclarrange is designed specifically for acne-prone skin and includes medicated formulas with proven-effective ingredients such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.

Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser: Formulated with maximum-strength 2% salicylic acid and lipo-hydroxy acid (LHA), this cleanser helps remove excess oil, exfoliate dead skin cells to prevent pores from becoming clogged and treats active blemishes. It also helps smooth skin texture without harsh particles that may irritate the skin.

Effaclar Duo: Featuring 5.5% benzoyl peroxide and lipo-hydroxy acid, this acne treatment works to reduce the number and severity of blackheads, whiteheads and other blemishes. It also helps reduce the look of blemishes immediately and over time, and it can be used all over the face or as a spot treatment.


Dermablendis the #1 dermatologist-recommended coverage brand for all skin types and concerns, including acne. Offering customizable coverage that won’t make breakouts worse, these products are makeup bag essentials.

Flawless Creator Foundation Drops: This versatile, pigment-packed, non-comedogenic, buildable complexion coverage puts you in control. Use it solo and adjust your level of coverage based on the number of drops, or mix it into a serum or moisturizer for a light wash of complexion-evening color. Both oil- and water-free, it serves up to 16 hours of stay-put wear.

Cover Care Concealer: Offering targeted, hydrating, one-coat coverage for blemishes, post-acne marks, dark spots, discoloration and more, this creamy, lightweight formula provides waterproof, transfer-resistant wear and a breathable feel for up to 24 hours.

It’s important to remember that successful acne treatment requires a comprehensive approach that includes your daily skin care and makeup routines. With the right products from La Roche-Posay and Dermablend—and patience (since it can take up to two months to see improvement)—clearer skin and enhanced confidence are within your reach.
