NIVEA acne products are catered to all your needs

NIVEA acne skincare products are designed to work with acne-prone skin to reduce breakouts and help skin heal. The wide array of acne products prioritises your comfortability, to allow you to not only look good but also feel good.

The NIVEA Derma Active Skin Clear range comes with four acne products, including a chemical exfoliator, toner, face scrub, and face wash for acne that can easily be incorporated into your skincare routine. The products also utilise the finest ingredients to ensure that your skin becomes stronger and less prone to blemishes.


Key Ingredients to look out for in acne skincare products

So what are the key ingredients used in acne skincare products? NIVEA acne products utilise three main ingredients which you should look out for when browsing skincare products for acne.

Niacinamide -A form of Vitamin B3 that is common in acne skincare products for its ability to help treat inflamed acne. Niacinamide also helps hydrate your skin and helps control the oiliness of your skin, keeping it firm, healthy and retaining moisture for a lengthy period of time. This is a core ingredient in many of NIVEA’s acne products, such as the NIVEA Derma Active Skin Clear range.

Salicylic Acid - Used in acne skincare products as a chemical exfoliating ingredient, Salicylic Acid keeps your skin feeling fresh and looking smooth by removing dead skin cells. The NIVEA Derma Skin Clear Anti Blemish Scrub utilises Salicylic Acid to help penetrate the pores, which allows for deep cleansing of your skin from the inside. This face scrub for acne can instantly unclog pores without drying out your skin, reducing the appearance of white or blackheads. This scrub contains milder ingredients which makes it a great choice for sensitive, acne-prone skin. Salicylic Acid also has anti-inflammatory effects, reducing redness on your skin and providing a healthier complexion.

Fruit Acids - Extremely effective at cleansing your skin, NIVEA utilises two types of Fruit acids in many acne skincare products. Glycolic Acid is a key ingredient in combating blemishes by activating the skin's natural renewal process. However, if you are looking for an ingredient that is suitable for sensitive skin, Lactic acids are milder exfoliators with great anti-aging effects.

If you want the best of both worlds, the NIVEA Derma Active Skin Clear Chemical Exfoliator for acne-prone skin mixes both fruit acids with other key beneficial ingredients. It can help to visibly improve your skin’s appearance by smoothing the skin and removing dead skin cells.


Benefits of a face wash for acne-prone skin

Now that you know what ingredients to look for when browsing skin care products for acne, let’s take a look at the benefits of using specific acne skincare products.

A face wash for acne-prone skin is a product that is necessary in all acne-prone skin care routines. Using the right face wash for acne is highly effective for facial cleansing. When your skin has been continuously exposed to bacteria and pollutants, it can feel unclean. A face wash can get rid of dirt and oil, which are the main causes of clogged pores. This is why a face wash for acne-prone skin can particularly help negate future breakouts and also decrease the visibility of acne on your skin. Face wash for acne often utilises ingredients that reduce inflammation of the skin, allowing it to look much brighter and reduce irritation.


Benefits of a face scrub for acne-prone skin

When it comes to looking at face scrubs for acne treatments, we recommend you to be careful with the choice of your products. Face scrubs for acne have many benefits for your skin, such as removing dead skin cells and avoiding clogged pores. They can also provide you with a smoother skin complexion and allow for better absorption of other skincare products. However it is important to note that over scrubbing can lead to further irritation and can even act as the catalyst for even more acne breakouts. Picking the right face scrub for acne is important. Despite the gentle ingredients used in NIVEA face scrubs for acne, it is advised to make sure you read the product information for all our face scrubs to inform yourself on how to properly exfoliate your skin without damaging it.


Benefits of a chemical exfoliator for acne-prone skin

It is important to understand that exfoliators for acne-prone skin can be categorised as physical exfoliators and chemical exfoliators. Examples of physical exfoliators for acne-prone skin are face scrubs or loofahs, whilst chemical exfoliators are products that come in various concentrations of acid that are used to clear your skin from dead skin cells. Skin care products for acne often have a milder acid pH which is safe for your skin. Chemical exfoliators have the ability to penetrate the skin, often leading to a deep cleansing process that can unclog pores, helping to prevent acne.


Benefits of toner and cleanser for acne-prone skin

Toners and cleansers can be a great addition when looking for acne products to complete your skincare routine. Toners and cleansers for acne-prone skin each have their own benefits and roles within a skincare routine.

Cleansers help clean your skin. They act as a great way to prepare your skin for further absorption of the rich ingredients used in your skincare products. Cleansers will keep your skin hydrated and soft, while pulling out the dry and dead skin cells. After clearing up the skin, toners are often used to maintain the balance of pH and prevent pores from being clogged. Toners are great for acne-prone skin as they aid in acne control. Depending on the type of toner and ingredients used, each toner will have their own additional benefits, such as providing the skin with hydration or anti-inflammatory effects.

NIVEA wants you to feel confident in your own skin! It is important to remember that a lot of people suffer from acne, and it is a completely normal part of life. It’s triggered by reactions underneath the skin and can be helped with consistent use of acne products.
