Balancing, Brightening Clay Mask
Product Description: Acne and skin breakouts affect most of us in our lifetime, predominantly during puberty but it can also appear in adulthood. When treating skin breakouts, we need to consider the root causes of this skin concern and target it with a multi-faceted approach. The most common culprits of acne and skin breakouts are a combination of an increase in hormones, specifically the Androgen hormone, which increases oil production, and a build-up of dead skin cells causing the skin follicles and pores to be obstructed. This in turn causes an imbalance of the skin’s microbiome and makes the skin vulnerable to bacterial disruption and inflammation.When treating acne-prone and breakout skin topically, we focus on all aspects involved: Barrier, Blocked pores, Bacteria and Blemishes (4 x Bs).
How to use: Apply a thick layer of Clarity Mousse Mask to cleansed, dry skin, using a mask brush or clean fingers up to twice a week. Leave on the skin for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off or remove using a washcloth or compress. You can expect to feel a cooling sensation initially and then a slight tingle as you experience the Clarity Mousse Mask doing its magic.
