Be Complexion Confident
Your face is the first thing people see. When one believes their facial skin is ‘blemished’ in some way it can lower self-confidence and self-esteem. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to hide one’s face. Luckily, there is a solution.
Perfectace Anti-Scar Cream contains active ingredients Kangaroo Apple Extract and Salicyclic Acid, which combined, helps to reduce blemishes and correct irregular skin texture, revealing healthy, radiant skin.
While the Kangaroo Apple Extract works to exfoliate skin, revealing smooth soft skin, the salicyclic acid increases cell turnover promoting rejuvenation of skin cells and increasing collagen production which is necessary for skin’s integral structure. Salicyclic acid is traditionally used to help clear and prevent pimples and skin blemishes in people who have acne, although it can be used by those suffering from skin conditions such as Psoriasis or Ichthyoses as it softens and loosens dry, scaly, or thickened skin so that it falls off or can be easily removed.
What is Acne?
Acne is in fact a common skin condition that can affect most people at some point of their lives. It usually causes spots to appear on face, back and chest but severity can range from mild to severe. Acne is most commonly seen in those aged between 12-25 years, but it can affect anybody. And boys tend to be more affected than girls.
Certain treatments have been shown to effectively help calm inflammation and irritation caused by acne as well as reduce scarring once spots begin to heal. Acne already causes embarrassment to those who suffer from it, so to be able to eradicate the visible scars left behind will no doubt be of great comfort to many.
Acne is a result of hair follicles becoming blocked by a mixture of sebum and dead skin cells. Sebaceous glands are attached to hair follicles. Their role is to lubricate hair and skin to prevent them drying out. In order to do this they produce sebum, which is an oily substance. But for those with acne, the body makes too much sebum and the excess mixes with dead skin cells which ultimately block the follicle.
If the blocked follicle is near the skin surface, a whitehead appears. Or, the blocked follicle may be open to the skin resulting in a blackhead. Blackheads are a symptom of acne. Harmless bacteria on the skin can infect the blocked follicles resulting in pustules, papules, nodules or cysts.
Active ingredients for blemish-free skin
Kangaroo Apple Extract contains Alkaloid Glycosides ‘Alpha & Beta Solanine’ and amino acids. Thesehelp to rejuvenate skin by exfoliation of dead skin cells which eventually eliminates blemishes.These glycosides also help to lighten skin by reducing coloured sun spots.Amino acids also possess antioxidant properties which help protect skin from free radical cell damage which can also cause skin health & structure to deteriorate. Extracts of this plant have been found to build up a film on the skin leaving skin feeling smooth & soft to touch as well as helps to build protein hyrdrolysate moisture in the skin. Moisture is necessary in the skin to maintain its health and youthfulness.
- Promotes lightening of scaring and pigmentation
- Leaves the feel of soft, smooth skin behind
- Antioxidant Properties
Salicyclic acid is an active ingredient commonly used in facial cleansers and acne treatment products. This is because of its antibacterial and drying effects. Salicyclic acid works by breaking up the cells that stick together in the inner lining of the skin pore helping to de-clog blackheads and whiteheads.
Once applied to the skin, it has a sort of peel effect which helps to begin acne healing. Salicylic acid helps to loosen blackheads, reduce oil and discoloration from old breakouts which is why those with oily and acne-prone skin gain the most benefit.
Not just for those who suffer with acne though. Salicylic acid works to loosen keratin (a protein in the skins structure), enabling thickened, and scaly plaques of skin to shed more easily making it effective for those who suffer from other skin conditions such as Psoriasis. An exfoliator containing salicylic acid removes dead skin whilst its mild acids concentrationhelps decrease inflammation and prevent further breakouts.

Is Perfectace Anti-Scar Cream Right for me?
Acne can cause much emotional and mental upset. It can affect one’s self confidence and self-esteem. The scarring left as a result of acne can be just as emotionally distressing. Perfectace Anti-Scar Cream contains the two necessary ingredients to help reduce the appearance of scarring, helping give back a sense of self-esteem and confidence in one’s own skin.
Acne, as we know, is caused by blocked pores. Kangaroo Apple Extract helps promote lightening of scaring and pigmentation whilst helping to rejuvenate skin by exfoliation of dead skin cells. Dead skin cells help block pores. The removal of dead skin cells may dramatically help improve skin’s health. Salicyclic acid helps de-clog black/white heads, helps loosen blackheads and reduce oil & discoloration from old breakouts. This formulation contains all one needs for a clearer complexion.
The Importance of Skincare
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Consisting of three layers, its outer layer is the body’s first line of defence against infection and the environment. In order to help keep this barrier strong, skin must be kept healthy and moisturised. Harsh skin care products can damage the outer layer of skin, stripping essential lipids and moisture. Therefore, undertaking a proper skin care regime daily can help preserve this important protective layer.
Skin constantly undergoes cell renewal, as old skin cells die and new ones form. Skin’s health is influenced by every aspect of life, from what we eat to where we live. Healthy skin is more able to fight against visible signs of ageing as well as heal faster compared to unhealthy skin, therefore skin’s health is of the upmost importance.
But we cannot stop skin ageing. With age, skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. UV exposure also takes its toll on skin, damaging skin cells, accelerating the skin’s ageing process. But a superior skin care regimen of antioxidants, natural cleansers and moisturisers, can help slow down the effects of time and the harmful environment.
As mentioned, cleansing is necessary to remove accumulated daily dirt and dead skin cells. But cleansing can dry out the skin as it removes the skin’s natural oil which retains moisture. Consequently, moisturisers are needed to restore water in the skin and protect it.
When it comes to moisturisers, we are spoilt for choice. Many people nowadays opt for the all-natural moisturisers. These contain an abundance of antioxidants which help fight against premature skin ageing and natural-derived nutrients that nourish the skin – helping relieve dryness and improve elasticity enabling skin to feel soft, smooth and appear youthful. Vitamin E is often included in good skin care products as it helps moisturise the skin. It also maintains elasticity. The type of moisturiser used is important as well. Consider your skin type and how it would react to an oil or a cream. Both provide moisturising benefits, but one may work better for you than the other.
Good skin care requires not only cleansing and moisturising but good habits too. A healthy diet packed full of nutritious foods will help improve skin elasticity. Applying sun protection daily with a minimum of SPF 15 will help to minimise UV damage to skin. Drinking water helps the body to function better, cleans pores from the inside and hydrates the skin helping it stay moist. Maintaining good habits alongside good skin care will help skin age gracefully and beautifully.
