What is included in The Ordinary Facial?
Skin cleanse with Squalane Cleanser- A gentle cleansing product formulated to leave the skin feeling smooth and moisturized. The formula incorporates Squalane, alongside other lipophilic esters that are gentle, moisturizing, efficient in dissolving makeup and facial impurities and increasing the spreadability of the product. The formula is designed to be gentle enough for daily use, without over-drying the skin, making it suitable for all skin types.
Light scrub and face massage (not one of The Ordinary products) - this helps with the absorption of the masque in in the next step. Removed with hot towels.
Salicylic Acid 2% Masque - Formulated to target lackluster tone and textural irregularities, this masque is infused with charcoal and clays which aim to enhance the appearance of smoothness and clarity, leaving the skin feeling refreshed. It removes dead skin cells on the surface of oily and blemish-prone skin, with the purpose of revealing more radiant skin beneath. Charcoal and clays are ingredients renowned for their deep cleansing abilities due to their porosity and large surface area available for adsorption. They aid the removal of facial impurities that would otherwise remain on the skin surface and clog pores.
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%- This serum has been created to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity.
Facial massage with 100% Organic cold-pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil- Rosehip Seed Oil is rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid and pro-vitamin A, all of which degrade when the oil extraction process involves heat. While cold-pressed extraction is complex, it preserves all of the quality of this important oil which supports healthy skin and can help reduce signs of photo-aging.
