This gel is an optimal treatment for oily skin which is prone to acne, blackheads, breakouts, and large pores, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin areas). When too much sebum (the skin's natural oil) is produced, pores become clogged with a mixture of sebum and dead skin cells. Accumulated sebum contains propionic acid bacteria, which is released into the tissue causing an inflammatory reaction. Pore Perfection Control Gel contains a special blend of alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate skin and keep pores clear whist the antibacterial properties of Tea Tree Oil help keep spots at bay.
How does it work?
Encapsulated Tea Tree oil combines anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory activities, while micro-sponge technology helps to absorb excess oil and assists with time released delivery of multi-hydroxy acids for gentle exfoliation. These processes help to prevent cell build up and clogged pores, while Vitamin B Complex (Yeast Extract) helps to regulate oil gland secretion. Aloe Vera is one of the oldest medicinal plants known to mankind. The ancient Egyptians used it in their beauty regimes whilst the ancient Greeks used it to heal numerous ailments; it has also been valued in Chinese medicine and used by the Native American Indians. It contains six antiseptic agents, moisturises skin, increases blood flow, naturally cleanses and penetrates deep into the skin tissue. Aloe Vera is a natural anti-inflammatory (contains plant steroids) and contains vitamins, enzymes, minerals and amino acids which encourage cell regeneration and help heal the skin, this product is almost 50% Aloe Vera. Lavender essential oil is naturally antibacterial, soothing and healing for the skin.
Alpha-Hydroxy Acids are naturally occurring acids, derived from the sugars of selected plants and fruits such as Sugar Cane, Grapes, Citrus Fruits, Apples and Bitter Almonds. These acids perform at the base of the stratum corneum, dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds dead skin cells together. Because this increases cell turnover, skin becomes smoother, more elastic and more even in tone and texture. Salicylic acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid and is unique amongst the Hydroxy Acids in that it can penetrate deeper into the oil glands helping exfoliation even in the oily areas of the face. For this reason it has been used for years by dermatologists (skin specialists) to help treat comedonal acne in people who have very oily skins.Lactic acid not only helps to exfoliate but is also a humectant which will help the skin retain moisture (not oil) which will keep the skin smooth and hydrated.
Use twice daily after cleansing. Apply a small amount of the serum over the face, concentrating on the T-Zone, avoiding the eye area. Follow with your favourite Bravura moisturiser. Repeated use will help to reduce oiliness, skin problems, and fine lines.
