purifying = active pureness
The solution to treat the typical blemishes of oily skin and prevent the formation of acne. Alpha-poly-hydroxy acids form a gentle natural exfoliator to encourage cell turnover, keeping pores clear and skin balanced. White and green clays absorb excess sebum for a mattifying effect on oily skin. Mangosteen extract protects skin from irritation and oxidation through its antioxidant and antibacterial actions.
Your Skin's Purity
Pimples, blackheads, enlarged pores and oiliness - these are the most common telltale signs of impure skin. For most people, impure skin is just a phase during their adolescence. But for many others, spots, blemishes, and skin imbalance are a recurring issue, particularly at times of hormonal change or when life gets stressful. These problematic skin conditions occur when pores on the surface of the skin become clogged and sebum builds up in the sebaceous glands. Add in impurities and lingering dead skin cells and our skin creates blackheads or white spots. When infected by proliferating bacteria, dreaded pimples appear. There are many factors that trigger oily or acne-prone skin such as genetics, hormones, daily use of aggressive or too rich cosmetics and of course our diets. Healthy eating, regular exercise and a good skincare routine with targeted action against impure skin are just a few of the ways we can achieve balanced, healthy skin.
How do we manage breakouts and blemishes? The first step is to keep our faces clean. Washing your face twice a day is key to removing excess oil and dead skin cells that clog pores. Use a mild cleanser with gentle surfactants and exfoliating agents, and warm water to rinse (hot water can dry out and irritate skin). Moisturize skin with hydrating products that minimize peeling and dryness. Be aware of how much you touch your face and never pop those pimples! Our hands and fingers transfer bacteria to the surface of our skin which can lead to more breakouts, infection and scarring. Add regular physical exercise to sweat out toxins and keep skin healthy and smooth. Eat low glycemic foods and foods rich in omegas like wholegrains, fruits, vegetables, and salmon to detoxify and improve the overall quality of skin. Protect your skin against acne by creating healthy habits and breaking those that lead to breakouts.
Gluconolactone, a poly-hydroxy acid, is derived from gluconic acid naturally occurring in fruit, honey and wine. It is known for a host of skincare benefits, ranging from its gentle exfoliating action to its ability to lift hyperpigmentation after breakouts clear. Suitable for all skin types, PHAs like gluconolactone work exclusively on the skin's surface without disturbing the delicate deeper layers. Unlike hydroxy acids which penetrate deeper into the skin’s surface, gluconolactone’s gentle effect results in less irritation when applied. It’s antioxidant properties hunt free radicals and protect against aging. It reduces the appearance of pores by stimulating epidermal repair and growth and fights against glycation to improve the overall elasticity and smoothness of the skin.
