For uneven skin texture and skin tone or hyperpigmentation, we recommend using turmeric as it has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which are essential for evening out skin texture, skin tone and skin complexion. It also works wonders for preventing acne and blemishes on the skin. Turmeric oil can moderate any excess melanin production in the skin in order to ease hyper-pigmentation. You can find turmeric in Stroke (double cleansing protection) and Polish (turmeric body scrub).
Stroke (double cleansing protection) also contains citric acid, which is great for brightening the skin. It works by gently exfoliating skin and removing any dead skin cells. Citric acid helps correct uneven skin tones, dark patches, scars, as well as age spots and dark circles under the eyes. The skin under the eyes is sensitive and therefore calls for gentle solutions like citric acid.
Argan oil is also very rich in vitamin A, which can help to reduce hyperpigmentation, by getting rid of dead skin cells to reveal new, fresh skin underneath. You can find argan oil in Stroke (double cleansing protection) and Sustain (oil cleansing protection). Argan oil is rich and soothing due to its high vitamin E properties. It is also an anti-oxidant that helps alleviate skin damage, dark spots and fine lines. We recommend massaging it into the face every morning or night as part of your skincare routine.
Aloe vera is a healing and calming ingredient that reduces redness and inflammation, as well as cool the skin. It is packed with vitamins C, E, B, allantoin, minerals, proteins, amino acids and beta-carotene, so it to actively repairs your skin. We use aloe vera juice in Fortify (toning protection), which is a cleansing tonic, that also contains rose water and citric acid for brighter skin.
When it comes to even skin tone, pores on your skin can have a tendency to get blocked with dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria, which can lead to inflammations, infections and acne breakouts. Citric acid works by shedding and sloughing away any dead skin cells in a more gentle and natural manner. Citric acid can also help in the breakdown of dead skin cells which accumulate as acne breaks out and heals. It may also help the skin reveal newer skin faster. It can also treat burns, acne and dry skin. Aloe Vera works best on surface acne rather than cystic or deeper acne.
Pumpkin seed oil is rich in vitamin E, zinc, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids as well as antioxidants. Therefore is retains moisture, improves the skin tone, helps wounds to heal more rapidly, fight acne and help with skin renewal. You can find pumpkin seed oil in Filth (dirt cleansing protection) to cleanse any dirt from the skin, help skin retain moisture, fight free radicals and maintain a youthful appearance. We also include lemongrass in Filth (dirt cleansing protection) to help fight pimples or spots by acting as an antimicrobial while also removing excess dead skin cells.
Almond oil is also great for improving complexion and skin tone due to its emollient properties to improve both complexion and skin tone.
