SKIN TYPE #2
OILY / COMBINATION / OCCASIONAL BREAKOUTS / ANTI-AGING
Combination, blemish-prone skin in need of anti-aging requires a careful blend of non-drying, pore-clearing exfoliants with hydrating antioxidants and skin-brightening botanicals. This will bring a perfect balance to your skin. Ingredients like natural Elderberry, stable Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Salicylic Acid will reveal clear, healthy and radiant skin with fewer visible lines and wrinkles.
SYMPTOMS OF SKIN TYPE 2:
- – Enlarged pores and produces oil mostly in t-zone
- – Skin feels tight, irritated or sensitive when harsh products are used
- – Needs hydration without heavy oils or pore-clogging ingredients
- – May get occasional mild breakouts and cysts (weekly or monthly)
- – May get clogged pores and blackheads
- – Post-blemish red/dark scars that linger
- – Wants to keep skin healthy and smooth
- – Concerned about aging
- – May have hyperpigmentation (brown spots)
What is mandelic acid?
Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from bitter almonds, but is more gentle.
Mandelic acid’s antibacterial properties are extremely helpful in treating acne. It also helps to regulate sebum production and in turn decrease the occurrence of breakouts. Mandelic acid has even been shown to benefit those who suffer from cystic acne.
Prolonged use of mandelic acid is safe for your skin, and will have rejuvenating benefits. If you have experienced irritation with other acid treatments, mandelic acid is the best option for you as the side effects are much lower.
