Acne-Prone Skin Frezyderm: Best Products
If you have acne prone skin, you’ll know how complicated and frustrating it can be to buy skincare products that work. When it comes to high street brands, many active ingredients used in acne products can actually end up making your skin worse; by stripping the skin of its natural oils, your body overcompensates and produces even more oil, leading to pimples and unpleasant breakouts.
We speak with many acne sufferers at our pharmacy, who try everything from budget brands to high-end labels but still can’t find a routine that works.
In this article, we’re going to be discussing Frezyderm, one of our favourite skincare brands for treating acne prone skin. Developed to create pharmaceutical-approved dermacosmetic products, Frezyderm might just be able to improve your acne-prone skin and increase your confidence. So what’s in the range, and how does it work? Let’s take a look!
What is acne prone skin?
Acne prone skin refers to skin that is excessively oily; when the skin produces too much oil, the pores on your face end up becoming clogged, resulting in red pimples from your chin to your forehead. You may have acne prone skin if the following applies to you:
- Frequent breakouts, which tend to be worse around your menstrual cycle
- Developing pimples after using a new skincare product
- Experiencing a breakout after exercising
- Being sensitive to certain foods, such as sugars and fried food
- Developing pimples after wearing face make-up, such as foundation or tinted moisturiser
What causes acne prone skin?
Acne prone skin can be caused by a variety of different factors: hormonal imbalances, poor diet, a lack of exercise, stress, and even genetic tendencies can result in someone having acne prone skin. Being acne-prone simply means that your skin produces too much sebum (oil) and this ends up clogging your pores.
If your acne is very severe, you may be able to access prescription medication on the NHS, such as accutane or tetracycline. We’d only recommend prescription treatment if your acne is so severe that it disrupts your day-to-day life or emotional wellbeing.

Treating acne prone skin: Frezyderm product range
So, what can you expect to find in the Frezyderm range for acne prone skin? Here’s an overview of the products, which you can find in our online pharmacy:
Frezyderm AC-Norm Active Foam Plus
Getting the right cleanser is key to keeping acne prone skin under control. Many forget that having acne prone skin is also a sign of skin sensitivity, so using a gentle cleanser is key. Frezyderm’s AC-Norm Active Foam Plus cleanser is the perfect antidote to an oily, acne-prone complexion: using AHA gentle exfoliation, the cleanser lifts dirt, excess oil, and bacteria, while hydrating the skin to prevent it from overproducing oil. To combat pimples, use this as the first step in your anti-acne routine.
Frezyderm AC Norm Medilike, Type 2
Formulated with plant extracts, this anti-inflammatory moisturising cream is a great way to keep your skin adequately hydrated without triggering excess sebum production. This moisturiser is ranked as “type 2”, meaning it’s best used by those who suffer from mild to moderate acne. If you have more severe acne, you should use Frezyderm’s AC Norm Medilike Type 3, which is formulated to treat more severe acne formations, like papules and swellings. Apply this cream to your complexion after cleansing your face with AC-Norm Foam Plus.
Frezyderm AC Norm Spot Care
Skincare products like cleansers and moisturisers will take a few weeks to get into your pores and work their magic, meaning you won’t see an improvement in your current acne for at least a week or so. If you want to get rid of current spots fast, Frezyderm’s acne-prone AC-Norm range includes a targeted spot cream, formulated with salicylic acid, plant extracts, sugars and vitamins. AC Norm Spot Care works as something of a magic pimple eraser; apply it to active pimples to see reduced swelling, reduced redness, and a smaller, less visible spot.
To keep acne prone skin under control, we’d recommend finding a skincare routine that works and sticking with it. Disrupting your skin again and again with different products and ingredients can end up destablising your skin’s natural pH balance, resulting in more breakouts. For best results, find products that work and use them both in the morning and at night.
