This daily moisturiser works with the skin’s natural mechanisms to balance the complexion and boost hydration, leaving a mattifying effect that looks flawless underneath make-up. Lightweight and silky soft, it blends easily across the skin, sinking in effortlessly to provide a matte and visibly nourished complexion. Its delicate citrusy scent is derived from natural essential oils that have been carefully selected to refresh and uplift. The Glycolic Acid Activator instantly dissolves into the skin as a perfect base for Balance Moisturiser to get to work.
HOW IT WORKS
Blemishes can be caused by changes in the skin’s microbiome, the bacteria that lives on the skin’s surface. Balance Moisturiser helps to rebalance the microbiome with prebiotics which feed the good bacteria living on the surface of the skin to encourage a healthy flora. Probiotics add to the levels of live bacteria in the flora, helping to balance and restore a long-lasting clear complexion. Cinnamon extract works in synergy with the pre and probiotics to reduce levels of blemish-causing bacteria, such as P. acnes. Meanwhile, beta-Glucan enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself for immediate comfort, and niacinamide soothes red, inflamed blemishes.
Glycolic Acid Activator is used to supercharge the power of Balance Moisturiser. The powerful AHA is applied before the probiotic moisturiser 2-3 times a week (or less depending on your skin’s sensitivity), and works to dissolve bonds between dead skin cells so they can be gently exfoliated away. This allows Balance Moisturiser to penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting the freshest skin cells with its blemish-busting actives.
PREBIOTICS & PROBIOTICS
The skin’s health is heavily dependent on its microbiome, the billions of invisible microorganisms which live on its surface. Changes in pH, hydration and environment can all affect the microbiome balance. Uneven natural flora can contribute to many skin conditions, such as dry, flaky skin and the formation of blemishes. Pro and prebiotics are used in Balance Moisturiser to restore the natural balance of the microbiome. Probiotics are live bacteria, which intermix with the natural microbiome and alter its composition. They can change the pH of skin to favour the growth of good bacteria, and produce antimicrobials to help protect the skin. Prebiotics are based on carbohydrates and act as food for the growth of probiotics at the expense of the skin’s bad bacteria. Pro and prebiotics work synergistically to help the skin regain its natural balance.
Prebiotics & Probiotics – Maintaining skin balance through enhancing good bacteria and limiting the bad, pre and probiotics promote a healthy, blemish-free complexion.
Niacinamide – Otherwise known as vitamin B3, this soothing anti-inflammatory quickly reduces redness and irritation surrounding the blemish, while regulating sebum production to prevent blocked pores.
beta-Glucan – A natural extract from oats, beta-Glucan enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself and provides immediate comfort to inflamed skin.
Cinnamon Extract – A natural antibacterial, cinnamon extract helps to limit blemish-causing bacteria, while also balancing the skin’s oil production.
Glycolic Acid – A powerful AHA, glycolic acid helps to visibly resurface and exfoliate the outermost layers of skin, to leave a brighter and clearer complexion.
