NZ TOTARA & CUCUMBER   60mL 2.0 fl oz

As an aesthetician, treating oily or combination skin begins with addressing and controlling the main triggers that lead to congestion:

Overproduction of oil: The sebaceous glands over produce oil this creates obstructions in the follicle wall which can lead to breakouts and enlarged pores.
Cellular accumulation; Blockages in the pore caused by a build-up of dead skin cells in the neck of the follicle. The combination of cellular accumulation and too much oil, creates the perfect environment for bacteria. The more bacteria that multiply, the more severe the breakouts and the more infected they become, causing painful pustules.
Inflammation: Bacterial assault on living cells and within the pores, leads to painful inflammed pustules and papules.
Dehydration: When tissues lack water, skin over compensates by producing more sebum

Most acne products only address one or two of these factors. Equilibrium addresses all of these, slowing down overactive oil-producing glands and promoting healthy cellular turnover to eliminate the food source for bacteria. The calming, hydrating gel formula soothes inflammation. Often an oily skin can be dehydrated skin, so the addition of hyaluronic acid—nature’s moisture magnet—is vital for optimises water circulation throughout the layers to reduce moisture loss.

Many commercial products for acne, blemished skin contain emulsifiers, thickeners and long chain silicones, these occlusive substances form an unnatural film on the skins surface, thus reducing the skins natural regeneration process as well as facilitating the growth of anaerobic bacteria such as propionibacterium acnes.

Equilibrium has been intelligently formulated with ingredients that are specifically adapted to the physiology of the skin, so they integrate perfectly, creating a natural breathable shield that balances and heals, the addition of antibacterial ingredients and natural acids decongest the pores, soothing the associated symptoms of redness and inflammation.
