While we may not associate lemon and calming together, the amino acids present in lemon are highly effective in treating redness.
With colder weather coming, our skin could use a little extra support, and Skinbolic's Calming Lemon Kit is coming to the rescue.
This kit can be incorporated into just about any facial, or you can do a full facial protocol and think of a fun seasonal or branded name. Full protocol can be seen here.
The Calming Lemon Kit is all about the amino acids and antioxidants. It's designed to hydrate, strengthen capillaries, brighten, and support a healthy barrier.
Here are some of the reasons to bring this into your treatment room:
1. Both lemon and orange peel powder help strengthen the skins capillaries, making it great for rosacea clients. If you're worried about irritation, have no fear, sodium citrate quells that. Sodium Citrate controls the pH, making this an incredibly gentle formula.
2. The lemon ampoule contains many amino acids, but here are some of our favorites:
Lysine: an essential amino acid responsible for building collagen
Histidine: A key building block, "is a potent scavenger of the hydroxyl radical, which can cause a a cascade of damage on the skin's surface". It helps protect against environmental damage and helps keep skin hydrated.
Valine: Aids in the synthesis of skin's primary collagen types 1 and 3
Other amino acids include: Arginine, Threonine, Serine, Glumatic Acid, Proline, Glycine, Alanine, and Methionine
3. It's very natural. Actually, when we were in Korea, the CEO opened the lemon pack and put some in her mouth. Slightly strange, but it worked it showing us that the ingredients are pretty basic and non-toxic!
