Beta Hydroxy Purifying Cleanser: To effectively wash and revitalize oily and problematic skin, you require a powerful cleanser with a good deal of exfoliating properties, while being gentle enough to keep skin calm and balanced. This cleanser was specifically designed to address problematic skin, by reaching deep into pores and lifting out stubborn dirt and oils. This remarkable cleanser uses the oil-soluble properties of Beta-Hydroxy Salicylic Acid to dissolve and remove excess oil and dead skin cells that build up inside pores and contribute to problem skin. This product falls into the REPAIR layer of the SkinHappy Pyramid.
Exfoliating PadsThese convenient pads facilitate exfoliation and oil control. Simply wipe the area using circular motions and whisk away dead skin cells, preventing them from clogging your pores. The powerful formula, containing a Glycolic / Salicylic Acid combo, will resurface, clarify, tighten, and firm the skin. This product falls into the REPAIR layer of the SkinHappy Pyramid
SkinHappy Solution #4:
- Helps reverse sun damage, fight blemishes, encourage new collagen formation, prevent unwanted pigmentation, improve skin tone and tightness, and protect against skin cancer, with a custom blend of complex vitamins A, B, C, and E.
- Vitamin A is the heavy hitter, protecting, preserving, and restoring skin health through multiple pathways and directly influencing the DNA and subsequent function of all skin cells.
- Vitamin B3 works to provide energy to skin cells to do work, but also calms skin, repairs the barrier, and helps build collagen. We use a lipid-friendly version of B3 in our formula to allow it to effectively penetrate skin.
- Vitamin C is required in the formation of collagen at 2 different areas in the formation of this complicated molecule; in addition, vitamin C works to release unwanted pigmentation from skin, as well as function as a powerful antioxidant. We use a lipid-friendly version of vitamin C in our formula to allow it to effectively penetrate skin.
- Vitamin E can help moisturize and repair skin cells; it also functions as an effective antioxidant.
- The SH Solution series is designed to be gentle;yet powerful and can be used in even the very young, starting as young as 2 years old, in conjunction with a broad-spectrum sunblock. Much like using fluoride in conjunction with brushing and flossing early on to prevent tooth decay, it's always been Dr. Kenner's philosophy to protect with sunblock and repair with retinoid on an ongoing basis to prevent sun damage accumulating along the way.
BHA Leave-On Exfoliating Lotion: A deep pore cleansing and exfoliating treatment can work wonders. For oily, problematic skin, this is a necessary step towards balancing sebum levels. Using an oil-soluble active significantly improves exfoliation, a pivotal step in helping problematic skin. This BHA Leave-On Exfoliating Lotion is a special oil-free, water-based, gel moisturizer that takes advantage of the oil-soluble properties of Salicylic Acid, providing an exceptional deep cleaning and skin exfoliating experience. Salicylic Acid is a chemical exfoliating agent and powerful Beta Hydroxy Acid that dislodges dead and damaged skin cells. It also lifts excess oil from clogged and infected skin pores. Formulated in a soothing, moisturizing, and protective Seaweed Extract, this incredible ingredient provides hydrating, conditioning, and smoothing benefits to equalize the exfoliation process. This engaging lotion can be left on the skin to work its wonders all day long to reduce sebum and keep pores clean.
4-Hexyresorcinol Lightening Gel: Dark spots are an unfortunate sign of damaged skin. This effective formula combines 4-hexyresorcinol, an organic compound derived from bran, with niacinamide (vitamin B3) to improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation without the risks associated with pharmaceutical skin lighteners.
