Jessica has been using the Bye Bye Blemishes kits for four months now after struggling with breakouts since her teens! She’s over the moon about her results and hasn’t needed any other interventions:
“My confidence is back! Because of Science Skincare. Within 4 weeks, I started to notice my pimples looking and feeling less ‘angry’, my skin as a whole felt healthier and smoother and looked ‘vibrant’. Within 5-7 weeks, the amount of pimples I was getting had dramatically decreased and my jaw line was once again smooth to touch. Now, 15 weeks after I started using the products I can honestly say I only ever get a pimple or two the week leading up to my period, and these pimples are gone within 24 hours.”
Breakouts causes self-confidence issues and impacts the quality of life. It is essential that we control them, improve the barrier and function of the skin and then proceed to scar revision after that. Day-to-day support for your skin is essential so we’ve made it as effective and as easy as possible for you to have beautiful, healthy skin by having all the proven key actives necessary in our range.
Beta hydroxy acid (BHA)
When we think about key actives, beta hydroxy acid in the form of Salicylic Acid is the one that comes to mind first, as it’s known for its powerful but gentle unclogging properties. Salicylic Acid reduces inflammation, provides exfoliation and stimulates new cell growth. It helps dislodging dead skin cells that can clog pores. It is a unique ingredient because it’s effective at fighting breakouts but it also has a calming and soothing effect unlike a lot of treatments that can cause redness and inflammation. Science Skincare has different concentrations of Salicylic Acid in their medical grade peels and it’s a key active in the night time Exfoliant.
Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA)
Another key active ingredient that can be found in Science Skincare range is Mandelic Acid which is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid. It has larger molecules compared to other AHAs and so provides superior, gentle exfoliation. Mandelic Acid has antibacterial properties and helps regulate sebum production, improves skin texture and visibly minimises the size of pores. Often dermatologists combine Salicylic Acid and Mandelic Acid to create a peel that shows excellent results in treating acne.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that visibly diminishes enlarged pores (hooray, we all love that!), improves uneven skin tone and strengthens the natural barrier function of the skin. Niacinamide helps even in cases with severe types of breakouts and especially inflammatory ones like papules and pustules, as it improves skin texture over time and reduces lesions. It also balances out oil production and prevents future breakouts. Niacinamide is tolerated even by sensitive and redness-prone skin types and is compatible with any other skincare ingredients.
Activated Charcoal has the ability to attract dirt and oil that cause clogged pores, it decongests the skin, calms inflammation and prevents bacteria from growing. A gentle cleanser like the Carbon Cleanser from Science Skincare purifies the skin with the power of Activated Charcoal but without drying it out while leaving it clean and healthy.
Tetrapeptide-30 is a synthetic peptide that contains the amino acids Proline, Glutamic Acid and Lysine. It’s suitable for all skin types, has anti-inflammatory and calming properties, brightens the skin and helps even out the skin tone. It’s proven to reduce breakout skin damage that can cause hyperpigmentation, discolouration and age spots. You can find Tetrapeptide-30 in the range of Science Skincare as part of some of the clinic peels and the UV Hydra Protect range.
