Acne is much more than a cosmetic skin condition. For those who have suffered with acne or that have acne scars, it’s a disease that affects you physically, emotionally and mentally. However it is also still very misunderstood and many people who get acne mistreat their skin, believing that their skin is unclean or that you can exfoliate acne away with over the counter products.

Whilst some temporary improvement can be seen initially, the results don’t last and this overly aggressive approach to treating acne often aggravates the skin and compromise skin barrier function even further, making the condition return, often worse than before. The temptation is to try another over the counter form of exfoliation and the viscous cycle continues.

Because acne is a very complex condition, that involves a multitude of factors, it requires a complex treatment that address this causes of acne at various levels, including bacteria, excessive sebum, dead skin cells and inflammation. Used in conjunction with dietary and lifestyle factors to address hormonal imbalances.

The most effective treatment for acne and acne scarred skin is the Purity Peel, offering a complex blend of Chirally Correct acids, encapsulated Retinol plus anti-inflammatory and antibacterial ingredients, to effectively treat multiple acne-causing factors, resurface the skin and help to normalize sebaceous activity and oil production.

Only by addressing multiple factors that cause acne, can you successfully address the issue and correct the problem at the root. The inflammation!

Purity Peel VS Salicylic Acid Peels

A common treatment for acne is by using salicylic acid peels. Whilst salicylic acid is a fantastic ingredient, being an oil-soluble acid, it has the ability to dissolve blockages and penetrate deep with the pore.

However salicylic acid peels are basic formulations that are simply not sophisticated enough to successfully treat acne or acne scars. They work on the misguided principle that acne is cause by blocked pores alone and that by exfoliating the skin and de-cogging the pore, that the acne will stop.

However as we’ve already discussed, acne is a much more complex issue and therefore requires a more sophisticated approach.

The Purity Peel is a metabolic treatment that contains salicylic acid plus a complex blend of ingredients, infusing the skin with Vitamin A to help correct and normalize healthy skin function, increasing cellular turnover from the living layer and regulating the sebaceous gland to reduce oil production.

The Purity Peel addresses the buildup of dead skin, blocked pores, excess sebum, p.acne bacteria and inflammation, making it an effective and long term solution for the treatment of acne and acne scars. Most importantly, it’s a non-traumatic peel that does not aggravate or irritate the skin and is safe for all skin types, including Black and Asian skin.

These work together to infuse the skin with potent anti-acne ingredients and help to correct normal skin function.
