Maskne: the word used to describe acne caused by regularly wearing a face mask. I wrote a Note about mask-related skincare issues a few weeks ago where I dove into the textiles of masks and shared my Top 6 Skincare Tips for this new age of mask-wearing. Today, I’m here to delve a bit more into one of the standout products I know makes a huge difference in dry skin, maskne, and the coming cold weather: Intense Moisture. It’s no secret that this nourishing moisturizer is a huge part of my fall skincare routine, I absolutely love it! There aren’t many products like it on the market; it’s not a cream or lotion, but instead, a healing butter that absorbs completely. Intense Moisture is the ultimate rehydrating solution for parched, sensitive skin and its combination of ingredients is what makes it truly remarkable.
As a rich, Tamanu butter-based facial moisturizer, Intense Moisture combats skin dullness, among many other skin issues. Tamanu oil contains more than 35% of a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid), which participates in reconstituting the epidermal lipids and prevents water loss from the skin while providing soothing, protective, and nutritious qualities.
Additional ingredients include Mango butter, which is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores or aggravate acne-prone skin. It contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants and melts easily at body temperature. Loaded with vitamins A and E, essential fatty acids, and natural antioxidants, Mango butter has a similar chemical structure to sebum, so it absorbs quickly and completely without greasiness or residue.
Calendula oil is a natural oil extracted from marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis) and has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. This makes Intense Moisture useful in healing wounds, soothing eczema, and also acts as an antiseptic.
You may have noticed that Rosehip oil is found in this and many other Kindred Skincare’s products. This is because it’s rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and C. This organic oil plays a vital role in skin health and contributes to collagen production, dry skin repair, and skin cell rejuvenation.
Evening primrose oil contains omega-6 fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which improves hydration, reduces skin inflammation, and assists in soothing and preventing acne. Evening primrose also increases skin structure, elasticity, and fatigue resistance, giving your skin a bright and firm look.
These organic ingredients combine to create a powerhouse vegan formula. Intense Moisture is pregnancy-safe and perfect for preventing and soothing maskne, eczema, and dry skin. Incorporate Intense Moisture into your skincare routine today for immediate healing benefits.
