The three components of acne are as follows: excessive oil production, ineffective exfoliation, and over growth of bacteria. Dr. Escobedo designed an effective regimen to PH balance the skin reducing its propensity to generate excessive oil throughout the day and night. Additionally this regimen gently exfoliates the skin.
The combination of glycolic acid, green tea, lavender, chamomile, aloe vera, benzoyl peroxide, and the power of salicylic acid to neutralize excessive oil, bacteria, and inflammation work surprisingly well.
Even the Radiance 360 Green Tea Mineral Powder SPF 30 is designed to absorb oil instantly as it provides protection against UVA/UVB with its rich anti-oxidant formulation. Just apply it every 3 hours for ultimate protection.
The conundrum with those other skin care products used to reduce excessive oily complexion is simple. They work too well. The skin requires a certain level of oil for lubrication and protection from the environment. The skin will over compensate by producing even more oil as a result of an unbalanced environment leading to a cycle of dry, irritated, and then oily skin. No fun!
We also recommend adding adapalene gel 0.1% a few nights a week as the last step before bedtime. This product may be purchased at your local pharmacy or department store.
