As hormone levels rise & bodies change, the skin reacts. For some teens, it’s an occasional pimple or blemish and for girls, this can occur right before each menstrual cycle. For other teens however, breakouts can go far beyond a pimple or two to create a chronic condition known as acne. Acne can be characterised by whiteheads, blackheads, puss filled pimples, boils, and/ or cysts. It usually develops in the central area of the cheeks, and on the forehead, and is usually caused by a hormone imbalance. Stress associated with teenage life can also be a factor. Boys also tend to get worse acne than girls as their skin produces more oil.

We all want to look our best, particularly at the start of a new year, and Uriage HYSÉAC Purifying Cleansing Gel is just the answer to giving you clearer, fresher and healthier skin for the party season.  Breakouts on the face and body don’t discriminate.  They can happen to anyone at any age. Various environmental and hormonal changes can affect the appearance of our skin and cause flare ups and blemishes as can diet and stress. Imperfection prone skin is always a concern among men and women and not just on our faces.  Back acne or ‘Bacne’ as it is often referred to in the press, can be a major confidence buster. Men can be more prone to getting “Bacne”, however many women also suffer from breakouts in this zone.  

HYSÉAC Cleansing Gel gently cleanses the skin, eliminating impurities and excess sebum which leaves the skin feeling clean & fresh.  Suitable for use on face, chest and back, the flip cap bottle makes this the perfect buddy!
