A deep pore cleaning and exfoliating treatment can work wonders. For oily, problematic skin, this is a necessary step towards balancing sebum levels and reducing breakouts. Sharla's Blemish Treatment Lotion uses a oil-soluble active ingredient that significantly improves skin pore penetration and cell exfoliation. It is a special leave-on, exfoliating lotion that takes advantage of the oil soluble properties of Salicylic Acid, providing an exceptional deep cleaning and skin exfoliating experience. Salicylic Acid is a strong chemical exfoliating agent and powerful Beta Hydroxy Acid that dislodges dead and damaged skin cells. 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 in order to maximize exfoliation and sebum reduction.

How It Works
Beta Hydroxy Acids are organic compounds with a particular molecular structure that contributes to it's chemical exfoliation strength. It's oil-soluble property creates a natural affinity with human skin oils (sebum), allowing for better assimilation into clogged and excessively oily skin pores. Salicylic Acid is a biosynthesized Beta Hydroxy Acid that works as an epidermal exfoliating, bacteria inhibiting, and pimple reducing agent. By causing the cells of the epidermis to shed more readily, it opens clogged pores and neutralizing bacteria within. This helps prevent pores from clogging up again by constricting pore diameter, and allowing room for new cell growth. Usually, exfoliating agents can leave the skin dry, exposed and sensitive, so we’ve added a nourishing Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract to the lotion. Derived from red sea algae, its elemental composition provides wholesome moisturizing and protective qualities. This natural ingredient delivers restorative moisturization to the skin. It also improves the natural skin barrier to lock in moisture and help protect the skin from environmental exposure. Formulated as a comfortable and blanketing lotion, Sharla’s Blemish Treatment Lotion can be applied and left on the skin all day long to improve pore penetration and degree of exfoliation. A quick and easy application lets the beta hydroxy acid work its oil neutralizing benefits while the seaweed extract restores hydration and improves the protective layer. This results in a more balanced complexion and revitalized skin.
