ABSTRACTAcne is a chronic inflammatory and relapsing condition, which vary in severity and may require long-term treatment. Dermocosmetics have become increasingly important in dermatology as they can target the fourth pathogenic pathways of acne (inflammation, abnormal keratinization and bacterial colonization by Cutibacterium acnes); they also reduce the frequency of secondary effects caused by other drugs, such as dryness, skin irritation and photosensitivity and this can aid with adherence to acne treatment. Inflammatory acne lesions can result in permanent scars and cause important psychological morbidity. In this article we will review different topical dermocosmetics used in acne vulgaris as well as some treatments to improve scars.
