When you put a black head or clogged pore material under a strong microscope you will typically see dead skin cells, sebum and clogging product ingredients like lipids (oils) and fatty acids found in make-up and moisturizers.
The enzyme papain is successful in loosening blackheads and clogged pores. Papain comes from green papaya and is a protein that looseness the peptide bonds that hold dead skin cells together.
Papain is considered a natural and gentle chemical peel. In conjunction with steam, which softens sebum, and some gentle facial massage, this will help loosen follicle and pore plugs and impactions.
Following the loosening of impactions, they will be removed from the skin via manual expression. The most effective and least traumatic way to remove impacted pores is to express what is in the pores out via a pushing in and upward motion-extractions.
Using gloves and sanitary measures blackheads, pimples, clogged pores and any debris residing in the top layers of the skin are able to be gently removed leaving the skin unclogged and able to ‘breathe’.
When the clogged pores are removed, oxygen is literally able to penetrate into the skin providing a natural antiseptic killing many acne provoking microbes.
An organic 28% L-ascorbic fruit acid vitamin C peel is applied after extractions to help neutralize free radicals, and exfoliate remaining debris. Vitamin C in the correct chemical expression is the most effective element shown to speed up the post inflammatory residual red spots from acne.
“Pollution can cause uneven skin tone, accelerated aging and even skin cancer,” says Doris Day, M.D., clinical associate professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center.
Due to new intense air pollution in large Chinese cities, there are many recent medical studies confirming that air pollution sits on and in the skin creating inflammation and other unhealthy consequences.
All city dwellers will benefit from the removal of toxins and the free radical neutralization from a powerful antioxidant like vitamin C. Make sure you check out our deep cleansing facial treatments and contact us with any questions you have.
