Combat Oily Skin with HydroPeptide - Review
By Carla Snuggs
As we enter the final weeks of summer, it’s time to start cleaning up the oil slick that hot temperatures, humid air and time spent in the sun might have caused. For post-season shine control, I turn to HydroPeptide, the leading peptide-based anti-aging cosmeceutical line, which has just the products I need to keep skin exfoliated, hydrated, fresh and young. So, put those blotting papers away! Here are three ways to help control shine:
Use an Acne Fighting Cleanser
Even if you’re not prone to breakouts, an acne-fighting cleanser will help keep skin looking matte if it contains at least 2% salicylic acid. HydroPeptide’s Purifying Cleanser: Pure, Clear & Clean is the ultimate 2-in-1 cleanser and mask formulated to produce a clearer, shine-free and younger-looking complexion. A blend of two peptides, salicylic & mandelic acids and tea tree oil draws out impurities, promotes rapid correction of imperfections and addresses the signs of aging without causing dryness or irritation.
Give Yourself an At-Home Facial
The best way to keep pores clear and dirt-free is to be your own at-home facialist. After exfoliating, follow up with a clay-based mask like HydroPeptide Purifying Mask: Lift, Glow, Firm. Kaolin and bentonite clays deep clean and make pores appear smaller by extracting impurities, absorbing toxins and enabling skin to control oil more effectively on its own. Hydrolyzed soy protein, a protein rich lifting peptide, increases moisture retention, elasticity and nourishment while improving skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) and delivering antioxidant benefits.
Use a Great Sunscreen
Just a teaspoon of sunscreen a day helps keep the shine away with mineral-based Solar Defense: Broad Spectrum SPF 30. This non-greasy physical sunscreen self-adjusts to the color of your skin tone to offer flawless coverage, while anti-aging elements hydrate, protect and help clarify the skin. A moisture-binding peptide rich in protein keeps skin balanced and shine-free by controlling oil and satisfying the skin’s exact moisture needs. Additionally, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide offer broad spectrum protection against UVA & UVB damage, while super-antioxidants including acai berry and green tea work to prevent future wrinkling and pigmentation.
