Good morning, my Sweeties*
This week, SWINA’s featured product is the incredible Beta Green Tea Lotion, a toner by Rhonda Allison! Here at Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics, we use this product to cleanse and strip the skin of any natural oils before chemical peels. We highly recommend using this product every other day for problematic, blemish prone skin. There are many benefits to using lotions and toners including hydration, firming, and even reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Beta Green Tea Lotion is a strong, all-purpose toner that helps balance the production of natural oils, and purifies your skin leaving you with a fresh, rejuvenated feeling. This toner provides antiseptic and antioxidant support for the skin and contains Salicylic and Lactic Acids which are extremely beneficial for normal to rosacea prone, reactive, sensitive, and problematic skin.
- Salicylic Acid. Extremely helpful for blemish and acne prone skin, Salicylic Acid is naturally derived from plants such as wintergreen leaves, marigolds, and more. Due to its large molecule size, this acid sits on the surface of your skin, allowing for a more effective, deeper penetration of your pores. Salicylic acid is great for sensitive skin and has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and fungicidal properties.
- Lactic Acid. Derived from sour milk, Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid. It exfoliates your skin by breaking down layers of dead skin cells and allowing them to be shed easier. Essential for aging skin, Lactic Acids help regenerate elastin and collagen, allowing for your skin to have a healthier, younger complexion.
- Heart of Green Tea Extract. Also known as Epigallocatechin Gallate, it is naturally derived from green tea which contains polyphenols. Polyphenols are disease preventative micro-nutrients that are responsible for the extract’s antibacterial purposes and antioxidant support. These antioxidants have the ability to counteract free radicals, which are harmful molecules that your body naturally produces. Free radicals can damage skin cells, and your body over time naturally loses the ability to protect your cells against them. Antioxidants in the product provide protection by neutralizing the free radicals, which reduces any free radical damage to your skin. The Heart of Green Tea Extract also provides anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce the appearance of blemishes.
How to Use Beta Green Tea Lotion:
After cleansing the skin, apply one pump of the Beta Green Tea Lotion onto a cotton round or gauze, and press evenly onto your face and neck. Let lotion sit on skin and absorb. To avoid drying of the skin, apply a hydrating moisturizer after use. We recommend Rhonda Allison’s Aloe Matte Moisture Cream for combination and oily skin. For other skin types, please ask our fabulous SWINA skincare experts which moisturizer works best for you!
