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