Impure skin is often oily, shiny and has large pores. It shows black heads, pimples and tends to develop inflammations. Due to an unbalanced lipid and moisture mantle, impure skin often also reacts in a particularly sensitive way. Hormonal changes are the main reasons for impure skin during puberty of young women and men. However, it also occurs at later stages.
An intensive and regular cleansing – with impure skin preferably in the mornings and evenings – is the first step to counter bacteria causing impurities.
Impure skin needs consequent care in order to reach a sustainable improvement of the skin tone. Ideal products are tailored to the skin type in order to reach the natural balance of the moisture level and sebum production.
There are many causes for impure skin: Bacteria, environmental pollution, wind and weather (extrinsic factors) stress skin on the one side, and on the medicaments, possible hormonal oscillations or even diseases (intrinsic factors). In order to rebalance skin, a targeted concept on a dermacosmetic basis is the best solution.
EffeCtive INGREDIENTS FOR IMPURE SKIN
Salicylic acid is one of the BHA acids. It dissolves hornification and is anti-inflammatory and therefore an efficient ingredient in the case of impure skin. Salicylic acid loosens the exterior layer of dead skin cells and removes skin particles also within the sebaceous glands so that healthier cells reach skin’s surface. The development of pimples and other impurities is efficiently prevented.
Salicylic acid is also used in dermatology - particularly for skin conditions involving blackheads, pimples and whiteheads.
