Skin Conditions
Blemishes
Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids gently recalibrate skin pH to a healthy acidic level, helping to reduce acne-causing bacteria; controlling breakouts and refining the appearance of pores while delivering instant luminosity. Salicylic Acid acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and penetrates deep into pores to decongest excess sebum, dirt and debris. Hexapeptides help to hydrate and restore barrier function. Australian SolarRepair Botanicals help to regulate sebum production.
B
Dry Skin
Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids gently recalibrate skin pH to a healthy acidic level, boosting skin resilience, smoothness, hydration and clarity. Lactic Acid provides ultimate skin hydration and refines texture. Ceramides and Hexapeptides help to hydrate and replenish the skin’s moisture levels. Australian SolarRepair Botanicals replenish skin cells and increase hydration.
DS
Pigmentation
Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids gently recalibrate skin pH to a healthy acidic level, working to boost skin cell renewal and fade epidermal pigmentation, evening out skin tone, texture and achieving instant clarity and radiance. Lactic Acid targets and brightens hyperpigmentation and treats sun damage. Hexapeptides help to restore barrier function and hydrate the skin. Australian SolarRepair Botanicals help to boost natural solar defence mechanisms to prevent further pigmentation from the sun.
P
Rosacea
Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids gently recalibrate skin pH to a healthy acidic level, calming inflammation and strengthening its barrier function. Salicylic Acid acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory, reducing redness and irritation within the skin. Ceramides and Hexapeptides help to restore barrier function and rehydrate the skin. Australian SolarRepair Botanicals help to boost skin resilience.
R
Sensitivity
Skin that is alkaline is often sensitive or sensitised. Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids gently recalibrate skin pH to a healthy acidic level, reducing irritation and strengthening barrier function. Ceramides and Hexapeptides help to hydrate and fortify skin resilience. Australian SolarRepair Botanicals help to strengthen skin resilience.
S
Sun Damage
Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids gently recalibrate skin pH to a healthy acidic level which in turn, deactivates ageing enzymes that breakdown collagen and instead, activates youth enzymes that stimulate and promote collagen production. This results in a youthful, radiance complexion and increased skin firmness and hydration. Hydroxy Acids help to reduce inflammation within the skin and increase its resilience against sun damage. Hexapeptides firm and hydrate the skin, stimulating collagen synthesis in deeper layers. Australian SolarRepair Botanicals help to repair solar-induced DNA damage.
