This Cleanser Doubles as a Brightening Mask
Reading Time: 1 minute
Is your skin feeling a little rough? Do you feel like your pores are clogged or that they need a good cleanse?
Fear not, as Faace addresses all these concerns with their cult-favorite Dull Face Cleanser. This multi-tasking dream doubles as a clarifying cleanser and as a brightening mask so you can hit two birds with one (creamy) stone.
It sounds like something out of the future, but the secret behind this dual-action wonder lies in its commitment to only using proven, good-for-you ingredients.
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, then you've probably heard of kaolin. Kaolin is a favorite ingredient in skincare products because of its mattifying properties (think of it as an oil-blotting sheet that you can spread all over your face!)
It doesn't just stop at oil absorption. Kaolin also acts as a magnet that attracts impurities buried deep in your pores, making it harder for bacteria-causing acne to set camp on your face.
Kaolin is gentler and less drying than most clays (like bentonite), meaning people with dry and sensitive skin can still reap its benefits.
The rise of Korean skincare introduced us to the wonders of green tea, making it one of the most well-researched ingredients in the industry.
Green tea is full of micronutrients called catechins that serve multiple benefits when applied to the skin. They're great antioxidants (meaning they preserve our skin's collagen leading to better aging), they're anti-inflammatory, and they have natural antibacterial properties.
For these reasons, green tea is especially great for people with acne, rosacea, or atopic dermatitis. In general, everyone can use more green tea in their lives!
Licorice root is a skincare superstar in its own right. It's considered to be one of the safest brightening ingredients with the least amount of nasty side effects like burns or peeling. It's so incredible in brightening that it's even been found to be more effective than the industry brightening standard hydroquinone.
Another superstar factor found in licorice is its potent anti-inflammatory properties. Like green tea, this extract also works wonders for inflammation-based skin conditions like atopic dermatitis, rosacea, or eczema.
