My girlfriend is living this year in a city with a lot of air pollution, dust, and other pollutants (Lima, Peru) and unfortunately her face is consistently breaking out as a result, and her face is becoming splotchy and dry from the cleansers she is using. She is interested in buying products ASAP that will combat this problem, and I was wondering which products would be most effective....Read Response (asked by Aaron M. of Unknown)
Since your girlfriend is temporarily living in a city with a high degree of air pollution, dust and dirty air particles settling on her skin that can certainly play a role in clogging pores which may lead to bacteria build up and acne. Due to the constant exposure she has to the air pollutants, it is imperative that she use a daily skin care regimen that will help deep clean the impurities without over-drying her skin. First, I would recommend the Enzyme Cleansing Gel to gently cleanse the skin. It is enriched with Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts to help discourage dead skin build up and clogged pores. Follow with the Special Cucumber Lotion, an anti-bacterial solution that will help to disinfect skin and discourage acne flare-ups. Then she should apply a thin layer of the Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF-17) to keep skin well hydrated and protected. Use the Flower & Tonic Mask 2-3 times a week for 15 minutes to gently deep clean the pores. This is a combination purifying and calming mask for congested, bumpy or slightly oily skin types. The Kaolin based formula absorbs dirt and oil from pores while the soothing botanical Balsam Peru ingredient soothes minor redness and irritation. For the occasional surfaced whiteheads she may experience, the Drying Lotion will help to dry it up overnight. The best spot treatment for deep bumps is the Sulfur based Buffering Lotion. It is a light, liquid antiseptic solution to soothe and heal cystic blemishes.
