Skin Type: Acneic – Oily – Congested
Zits make a break for it when Blemish Control Solution enters the room. With a 7% mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids, skin is lightly exfoliated and bacteria is confronted head on.
Oily skin is prone to blackheads, breakouts, and large pores, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin areas). When sweat glands produce too much oil, pores become clogged with a mixture of sebum and dead skin cells.
Accumulated sebum contains propionic acid bacteria, which is released into the tissue causing an inflammatory reaction. Blemish Control Solution reduces shine, absorbs moisture and perspiration, providing a long lasting smooth and non-greasy matte finish.
Glycolic Acid (5%) – An alpha hydroxy acid that loosens dead skin cells, softens and dissolves debris in the pores. Works with salicylic acid to reduce the appearance of scarring
Salicylic Acid (2%) – Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), provides exfoliation preventing pore clogging and smoothing fine lines/wrinkles, stimulates new cell growth
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)– the biologically active form of niacin, Vitamin B3. It increases the rate of skin exfoliation and increases moisture barrier repair. Studies have shown it to be useful in increasing synthesis of collagen and lipids, inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes and decreasing inflammation; antioxidant that works for aging and acne related issues
