RESQ was specifically formulated as a spot treatment to target surface blemishes and acne skin. Acne and its associated blemishes are the result of chronic inflammatory skin conditions that involve four main factors:
- Overproduction of skin cells.
- Increased production of sebum (oil).
- Excess skin cells combine with environmental pollution and dirt and get clogged in the pores.
- Acnes bacteria (Cutibacterium) present in the pores, thrives in oily environments.
Many commercial anti-blemish products only target one or two of these factors, so I felt it was important to create a treatment that addressed all four within one product.
This fast-acting formula gets right to the source of pimples, papules, and pustules, which occur not only on the face, but also on the neck, chest, and back. Salicylic Acid and Sulfur are natural keratolytic ingredients that clear the lining of the pore, whilst Manuka, Niaouli, and Lemongrass extracts work together to neutralise the bacteria responsible for breakouts.
Note: Please don’t shake the bottle – if you do, leave it standing overnight and the lotion will settle.
