Skin Type 3: Purify, Nutrify, Defend
Skin Type 3 members exhibit moderate levels of naturally occurring melanin and may be able to absorb more UV radiation then members with Skin Type 1 or 2. We complement member’s skin needs with a dose of red algae (Chondrus Crispus), which grows abundantly along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coast of Europe and North America. The remarkable properties of this marine algae deliver moisture to instantly hydrate and cool the skin. The series also includes an extra measure of daisy flower extract (Bellis Perennis). This potent extract is a highly efficient, natural skin lightening agent that evens the overall tone to improve the skin’s appearance.
Skin Type 3
In this series we balanced our recipes with fennel seed extract (Foeniculum vulgare) to reduce redness, and an added dash of Yakima Peppermint in Purify and Defend as a natural anti-microbial with cooling sensorial properties.
Peppermint, one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs, is credited as an analgesic, decongestant, and may help increase memory and alertness. Many who have smelled peppermint attest that the fragrance is a great pick-me-up when tired or stressed.
As with all Previse products, our recipes are customized with the appropriate level of ingredients to achieve optimum skin health. Hyaluronic acid is added at varying degrees to improve cell cohesion and the barrier function of the skin while maintaining hydration through a “water reservoir” function in the dermis. A highly specialized soy bean extract is added to help restore skin’s elasticity, increase collagen density, and enhance collagen synthesis. We further infuse our formulas with Panthenol (vitamin B5) and Resveratrol, a potent antioxidant to scavenge free radicals and protect the skin’s surface from oxidizing.
