Skin Type: Acne-Prone | Rosacea-Prone | Stressed | Red | Dehydrated
Summary of Benefits:
• Purifies pores in minutes
• Calms and eases visible redness instantly
• Cooling gel freshens skin and revives comfort in seconds
• Amplifies hydration while encouraging skin to repair itself
Purify skin’s surface, dissolve dead cells, cool heat and redness, and encourage skin to repair itself with this intensely hydrating, pore-purifying gelle masque. Ultra-soothing Lichochalcone from Chinese Licorice interrupts the biochemical cascade that leads to redness and other discomfort. It also decreases lipase, an anti-lipid enzyme produced by bacteria on skin’s surface and in pores. Researchers have linked lipase to the heightened inflammation often seen in moderate and severe acne-prone skin. There are a host of active ingredients in this soothing masque to keep your skin cool, calm, and comfortable even with harsh treatments.
This formula is recommended for those using Accutane®, retinol, benzoyl peroxide and other medications that can leave skin extremely dehydrated, cracked, flakey, red and irritated.
