Not surprisingly, clean skin is better prepared to repair itself when it is free of dirt, oil, pollution, bacteria, makeup, sunscreen and hair product residue. In addition, neglecting to liberate skin from all that gunk usually results in the clogged pores that can cause blemishes. And as if pimples weren’t enough of a problem, clogged pores can also reduce skin’s ability to absorb the active ingredients in the other treatment products we’ve spent our precious time and money on.
Skipping this crucial cleansing step can also compromise our skin’s protective barrier function which is essential for locking in vital moisture and keeping out toxins, irritants, and pollution. It also can cause inflammation, which has been shown to accelerate skin’s aging process and further prevent our treatment products from working their hardest.
But of course, too much of a good thing is, well, too much of a good thing. So, we should all be sudsing up with gentle formulations and warm water rather than hot, so we don’t disrupt skin’s delicate pH and protective moisture barrier.
We’ve formulated our Hydrinity, Hyacyn Active Purifying Mist with Hypochlorous Acid (HCOl), a potent anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory agent not only to gently remove everything you don’t want on your skin without stripping it, but also to treat blemishes and soothe even the most stressed and sensitive skin, including those prone to acne, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. By helping to keep pores clear and reducing inflammation, Hydrinity Hyacyn Active Purifying Mist also maximizes the effectiveness of our other products.
