When taking a stand against acne, it’s important to consider everything that comes in contact with your face. This includes skincare products as well as 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 skincare and dermatologist-tested, high-performance coverage can help improve your complexion and your confidence.

That’s why La Roche-Posay and Dermablend have joined forces, and the goal of this partnership is to help guide you to a holistic, customized acne solution. Featuring four key skincare and makeup products that empower you to take on acne effectively, this set has your skin covered.

Skin CareLa Roche-Posay’s Effaclar range 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 acne cleanser helps remove excess oil, exfoliate dead skin cells to prevent pores from becoming clogged and clear 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. Proven to reduce up to 60% of acne in 10 days, it can be used all over the face or as a spot treatment.

MakeupDermablend is 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 essentials in any makeup bag.

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 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 skincare 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.
