Clear, calm skin with Elemental Herbology’s new innovative facial oil
Breakouts can occur no matter your skin type – sometimes occasionally, and for some more often. Elemental Herbology has designed the innovative new Purity Facial Oil with this in mind that gives you a quick and safe solution to reveal clear and calm skin. A powerful blend of natural actives combines to get to the root of the problem, treating blemishes, breakouts and oily skin while reducing redness, inflammation and congestion. Let’s take a closer look at how this facial oil can help you…
Two important active ingredients- 1. Salicylic Acid (2%) which is a BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) and 2. Bakuchiol which is known as “nature’s retinol”.
Derived from willow bark, salicylic acid is an oil soluble ingredient that works to clear clogged pores, which means its an excellent ingredient for fighting both whiteheads and blackheads. Plus, it is naturally anti-inflammatory, which helps to speed up healing time of active breakouts and reduce redness.
Bakuchiol is a plant-derived, natural alternative to retinol. This is a great ingredient for treating active pimples as well as reducing the dark spots that may be left behind after healing, thanks to its antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Overall, bakuchiol is a well-rounded anti-aging ingredient that smooths the skin, improves texture and elasticity for clearer, calm skin.
But- I have oily skin, is a facial oil going to make my skin oilier?
Still a common concern, but the truth is that most often people with oily skin types or acne-prone skin gravitate to “oil-free” skincare formulas which in turn can make things worse. What is important is that the skin barrier is provided with an optimal amount of oil to maintain a healthy balance without over stripping it and creating an overabundance of oil. Think, treat oil with oil.
The Purity Facial Oil combines non pore blocking dry oils (otherwise known as non-comedogenic) of Hemp, Raspberry and Sea buckthorn. This formula replenishes skin moisture and helps repair the skin barrier. The key is that it absorbs quickly leaving no shiny appearance.
How to use the Purity Facial Oil in your routine:
Warm 2-3 drops of facial oil between your hands and apply to clean, dry skin paying particular attention to areas of congestion. Purity Facial Oil can also be applied directly to active breakouts as an on-the-spot treatment.
If you have drier skin or if you are one to get the occasional breakout from hormones, stress, etc. this is a great preventative and maintenance product. Simply apply 2-3 drops daily or every other day and follow with your normal moisturizer.
