How To Use
This was my first clean beauty foray into a strong Acid Toner. An acid toner is basically a combination of alpha or beta hydroxy acids, which chemically dissolve the bonds holding the top layer of dead skin cells, thus allowing them to be shed, thereby revealing the new, brightened, even-toned and younger looking skin underneath.
To stay true to the Sabbatical Beauty formulation ethos, I've put this together by throwing in just about every fruit acid and enzyme I could get my hands on, thereby giving you one of the cleanest profile, yet most effective acid toners you've probably ever tried.
Ingredient Deep Dive:
🍍Tropical Fruit Enzyme Complex (Lychee, Jujube, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Mangosteen & more) for gentle exfoliation. Enzymatic exfoliation is one of the most gentle forms of exfoliation
🍍 Fruit Acid Alpha Hydroxy Acid Complex (Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Orange, Lemon & Sugar Maple). Alpha Hydroxy Acids do an excellent job helping dry skin to better hydrate and to reduce the appearance of fine lines
🍍 White Willow Bark Extract, which is a natural source of Beta Hydroxy Acids. Beta Hydroxy Acids are especially good for regulating oil production.
🍍 Prickly Pear Extract and fermented Pomegranate, Pineapple, Apple for even more gentle fruit acid exfoliation
🍍 Fermented Bamboo which helps to deeply hydrate and to reduce discoloration and even skin tone
🍍 Base of Aloe Vera to hydrate, soothe and nourish skin while exfoliating
- Brightening, reduces scars
- Strongly exfoliating
- Helps acne
- Regulates oil production, increases skin's capacity for hydration
To use: Apply on cleansed skin using a cotton pad. For best results, wait 20 minutes before proceeding with other steps. Then follow with serums, moisturizers etc.
If you have sensitive skin or are new to acid toners, start with once a week. You can gradually increase use as you get more tolerant. Overuse usually results in reddened, irritated skin and flaking.
