Exfoliation & Acneic Skin
Skin showing overwhelming and continual blemishes can be distressing, leaving us feeling insecure in our own skin. Cleansing is of course of vital importance, but skin bothered by excessive sebum and dry skin needs an extra boost. A gentle exfoliation can lift away all those layers of impurities to reveal the true beauty beneath, allowing the skin to be exposed to the essential air it needs and achieve a new equilibrium. However, a too-strong method can actually retrigger the skin to produce more oil, and strong chemicals risk a negative reaction. Overall, a natural approach, that balances exfoliators with nurturing, soothing factors, would be ideal.
Granulated Sugar & Sea Salt
Acneic skin can certainly be troublesome - and it requires a firm hand! To provide that potent yet gentle approach, two natural exfoliators were selected. Granulated Sugar and Sea Salt are used in a broad range of natural products, targeting dead and dry skin on the face, lips, and body generally. They work together to provide a mix of varisized particles, which can lift undesirable residues from every layer of skin. Even better, they need no extra additives to enhance or preserve their powers.
