Cleanance WOMEN

Cleanance effectiveness adapted to the life (and skin) of adult women.

Mostly associated with adolescence, blemishes also affect adults, but in a different form. These are mainly inflammatory blemishes, often located on the lower part of the face, which take some time to disappear.  

The skin of adult women is sensitive, combination or dry and particularly prone to the aggressions of daily life. It can react with areas of shine, dilated pores and lead to the appearance or persistence of imperfections. It’s difficult to cope with these imperfections, as they can undermine self-confidence and sometimes leave behind the bitter taste of déjà vu...

Our laboratories have therefore used their expertise to create Cleanance Women, the new anti-blemish care routine dedicated to adult women.

I opted for Cleanance HYDRA as this cream moisturises the skin well and leaves behind a non-greasy feel, penetrating deep into the epidermis. I recommend it morning and evening for people undergoing acne treatments!

Do you have a question or concern? We’re always here for you

This is sometimes true, especially in the case of hormonal teenage acne. On the other hand, it’s possible for acne to persist into adulthood. In this case, women are mainly affected. Hormonal changes (e.g. pregnancy) are triggers for acne breakouts, as well as UV radiation, dust and air pollution—all of which can influence acne. It’s important to react quickly and not to hesitate to consult a health professional in order to get good advice.

When it comes to acne scars, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure: getting rid of them is a long and costly process, involving laser treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion... The best option is therefore to have a well-adapted and effective anti-blemish routine. The less blemishesthere are, the less scars there will be!
Fortunately, there are dual-action skin care products that reduce blemishes, diminish the hyperpigmentation of dark marks and reduce light scars.

Wearing a mask can suffocatethe skin, which can make it more susceptible to breakouts.
Our advice: Hygiene is essential, both morning and evening. Reinforce the skin's hydration, but with products for oily or blemishes-prone skin that will moisturise while reducing imperfections and limiting their reappearance. And be sure to wear a clean mask every day, as it can become saturated with cosmetics and creams, which will make it more irritating and comedogenic.
