Master Herb Anti Acne & Scar Mask 35g
Deeply cleanses the skin, promotes the elimination of post-acne spots and scars, prevents the development of acne.
Oily skin is frequently accompanied by scars, which are traces of the long and persistent fight against acne. It is impossible to “erase” them using scrubs since these products target healthy skin: any scrub, even the finest one, will spread the infection over the face and several eruptions will occur instead of one. Moreover, scrub causes additional injury to inflamed skin.
Anti-Acne and Scars Cleansing Masks are sure to become an important discovery for problem skin. They contain AHA (alpha hydroxyl) and BHA (beta hydroxy) acids.
AHA (alpha hydroxyl) acids are commonly known as “fruit acids” because they were first discovered in fruit. They include glycolic, lactic, malic, tartaric and other acids.
They gently cleanse the skin from excessive sebum and dead cells, leaving it flawless by evening skin colour and texture.
Ancient Egyptians and Greeks used lactic acid (sour milk), glycolic acid (sugar-cane juice), tartaric acid (wine
sediment) and other acids (fruit and berry juices) for skin rejuvenation.
Glycolic acid is contained in sugar-cane and green grapes. Its molecule has the lowest weight in the AHA row, therefore, it easily penetrates through the epidermal barrier and
has the most pronounced effect.
Lactic acids contained in sour milk, yoghurt, whortleberry, passion-flower, maple syrup, apples, tomato juice and grapes. It has pronounced moisturizing and exfoliation effects.
Malic acid is contained in fruits and vegetables, mainly in apples and tomatoes. It exfoliates and stimulates cells, intensifying cellular metabolism.
Tartaric acid is contained in mature grapes, old wine and oranges. It has exfoliating, whitening and moisturizing effects.
Citric acids contained in the fruit of citrus plants (lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange). It has a whitening effect on the skin, which is enhanced in the presence of tartaric acid. It has antioxidant and bactericidal properties.
BHA (beta hydroxyl) acids are used in combination with fruit acids. The main difference between AHA- and BHA-acids is that AHA acids are water-soluble while BHA acids are
liposoluble. Liposoluble acids are able to penetrate oil gland ducts and dissolve sebum plugs. The placenta peel contains salicylic acid, which is the most notable specimen
of BHA. It is contained in the form of esters in birch bark and gaultheria leaves. It has keratolytic (exfoliating) and antiseptic properties.
