Last week I discussed the cause and symptoms of acne. There are over the counter products in pharmacies that help with acne. In Whelehans we find that people get impressive results from the Uriage Skincare range. There are many products in the Uriage range that help with acne, dry skin and rosacea. In this article I discuss three from the range that help acne but call in store and our staff will advise you on the product that suits you. In next week’s article I will discuss other products that can help.


Uriage cleansers

There are three types of Uriage Cleansers which can help prevent and ease acne, including a Gel, a cream and a water version. Eliminates impurities and excess sebum. High Rinse-ability. Skin appears clear, fresh and healthy. Ultra-gentle, soap free with a rinse off cleansing action. Specially formulated for combination to oily skin. Ideal for Face and Body.


Uriage Hyseac Mat and Hyseac K

Uriage Hyseac Mat has a delicately perfumed Half -Gel Half Cream texture. Contains a powerful and long-lasting sebum -regulating agent. It has a triple action including reducing shine, tightening pores and moisturising skin.


Uriage Hyseac K refines skin texture, limits blackheads and purifies. It can be applied directly to each spot or all over if required.


Uriage Skin Paste

This “magic” paste acts straight away from the first night by accelerating the spot maturation process, causing spots to disappear quickly. With its formula that combines the action of purifying schist oil with naturally absorbent green clay and zinc.
