Your acne & oily skin questions answered

What is the best moisturizer for oily skin by La Roche-Posay?

We recommend Effaclar Mat Moisturizer for oily skin. This lightweight moisturizer provides hydrating benefits while leaving the skin looking and feeling matte.

What products do dermatologists recommend for acne?

The American Academy of Dermatology & American Academy of Pediatrics recommend topical retinoids and benzoyl peroxide in the treatment of mild to severe acne. La Roche-Posay offers both a retinoid and benzoyl peroxide treatment with cosmetic elegance available over-the-counter.

How do I help control my oily skin?

Dermatologists recommend appropriately cleansing your face twice daily to remove oily residue and grease as an essential first step in reducing excess oil. Adding a retinoid to your routine at bedtime can help control excess oil on the skin.

How can I visibly tighten my pores?

While there is no way to permanently reduce your pore size, we suggest using Effaclar Serum to help reduce the appearance of pores. This pore minimizer serum helps reduce the look of pores,visibly smoothes skin texture and boosts radiance. Formulated with glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid and micro-exfoliating lipo-hydroxy acid, this face serum for oily skin reduces the look of enlarged pores and visibly tightens skin.

What’s La Roche-Posay’s best regimen for acne prone skin?

For a full acne regimen we recommend using our award winning Effaclar Acne System, which is a 3-step acne kit with a Medicated Gel Cleanser, a Clarifying Solution both with Salicylic Acid and skin care ingredients such as Lipo-Hydroxy Acid and Glycolic Acid. It also contains Effaclar Duo Acne Treatment with Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide and Lipo-Hydroxy Acid.

When should I use an acne spot treatment

Dermatologists recommend using an acne spot treatment in the morning and/or evening right after cleansing your face. Effaclar Duo Acne Spot Treatment can be used as a spot treatment or all over the face up to 3 times daily.
