4 Powerhouse Ingredients for Saintly Clear Skin
It’s the ultimate dream, right?! Sometimes easier said than done with environmental, stress, hormones, diet and pretty much everything effecting it.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and its anything but basic.
Here are Cosmetic Nurse Elly's TOP 4 ingredients to look for to promote that clear complexion.
1. Salicylic Acid (Beta Hydroxy Acid BHA)
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid, or BHA, which has a slightly different atomic structure from an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) involving an extra carbon atom. BHAs are oil-soluble and highly efficient at unclogging pores and exfoliating acne-prone skin. Salicylic Acid has been proven to minimise enlarged pores, diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, visibly reduce redness and calm stressed skin, reduce excess oil in the pore. Found in Saint Louve 12% AHA/BHA Exfoliating Serum
2. Lactic/Glycolic Acids (Alpha Hydroxy Acids)
Lactic acid is one of the most popular alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), AHAs are frequently used in skin care products because they have the ability to exfoliate the skin, stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process, and help the skin to retain moisture. Other AHAs include glycolic acid, mandelic acid, tartaric acid, malic acid, and citric acid. In addition, its moisturizing effects, keeping the skin hydrated and soft, allowing blemishes to heal better. Found in Saint Louve 12% AHA/BHA Exfoliating Serum
3. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Niacinamide can also help regulate the amount of oil the sebaceous glands produce and prevent your glands from going into overdrive keeping skin smooth and moisturized. This in turn, may have a secondary benefit — a natural reduction in pore size over time. Found in Saint Louve Vitamin B3, B5 & Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum
4. Retinol (Vitamin A)
By unclogging pores, retinol clears skin and prevents further outbreaks from occurring. Retinol has anti-inflammatory properties and can help brighten your skin and gives it a more youthful appearance and even skin tone as well as reduce the visible results of acne scarring. Found in Saint Louve 0.25% Encapsulated Retinol Serum
