Refining Gel is formulated to unclog and refine pore size, reduce breakouts thus revealing radiant and even toned skin with witch hazel, 2% vitamin B5 panthenol and 2% salicylic acid. Salicylic acid can exfoliate the skins surface from inside the pore where it unclogs the pore and aids keratolsys. 100% natural or nature identical ingredients
Resurfacing and exfoliating the skin reveals brighter healthier looking skin and creates a dramatically improved appearance and texture of the skin. It has also been shown that salicylic acid is more easily tolerated on the skin than AHAs. Unlike AHA, salicylic acid can break down the fat cells on the surface of the stratum corneum without affecting the deeper layers of the skin.
How to Use:
How often should I use the Refining Gel? Refining Gel is applied at night. It is important to avoid sun exposure when using any acidic peel such as BHA, AHA or Retinoids. To avoid overuse of salicylic acid; Refining Gel only needs to be used on acne and pimples as required until it starts to clear. As a great spot solution, you should apply directly on the spot at night after cleansing. An excellent tip is to apply a Band-Aid over the spot. The sterile Band-Aid stops any bacteria from fingers infecting the pimple more and the pad absorbs the infection. This is great for the night before a ‘big night out’ when you get a big zit! A chemical peel once a week can be suitable for reducing pigmentation, surface roughness, fine lines and acne. So, first rule of thumb is to use it more as a spot treatment where possible.
We understand some people have extreme acne covering the face and we recommend these people use the Refining Gel at night until the acne is starting to clear and then shift to using it as a spot treatment on individual pimples and a peel once a week. A great product to use on alternative days and in between a weekly peel is our Skin Bright Serum.
BHA (beta hydroxy acid) assists in decongesting black heads and white heads by dissolving sebum build up and reducing inflammation. Increase cell turn over results in smooth skin texture and minimising of fine lines and scars.
NOTE: BHA may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Persons allergic to aspirin, pregnant or lactating should not use a product containing salicylic acid. Always conduct a spot test before use.
