Acne and Masking
By Kendall Weatherman, Licensed Esthetician

Masks are an ideal way to treat acne. Masks for acne should include high concentrations of powerful ingredients like clays, glycolic and salicylic acids, sulfur, zinc, aloe, panthenol, and chamomile to target the excess oil, dead skin cell buildup, bacteria and inflammation that cause acne.

Clays absorb the excess oil that is produced in acne-prone skin. Pevonia uses white Bentonite clay from volcanic ash from Europe in the Purifying Skin Mask as it also mildly exfoliates, and clarifies to reduce the dead skin cell buildup associated with acne.

Glycolic acid and salicylic acid exfoliate and address the accumulation of dead skin cells that clog pores and cause breakouts as well as the uneven texture, scarring and pigment that can follow. Glycolic acid is the smallest of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), which allows it to penetrate deeply for greater results. Salicylic acid is a BHA (beta hydroxy acid) that penetrates deeply into the pores to reduce excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria, earning it FDA approval for treating acne. Pevonia uses naturally sourced acids, which don’t irritate the skin like synthetic versions used in most over the counter or drugstore products.

Sulfur is proven to heal and prevent breakouts as it exfoliates and dissolves dead skin cells that accumulate in acne-prone skin. Sulfur also destroys p. acnes bacteria and minimizes excess oil, basically drying out the infection that causes breakouts. Pevonia’s Purifying Skin Mask contains natural sulfur from the Earth’s crust, broccoli and spinach so the aroma is not objectionable and is better tolerated than other versions. Note: Sulfur is essential to life and actually present within the human body and is not to the same as sulfa drugs or sulfonamides. Those that are allergic to sulfa drugs need not worry.

Zinc oxide inhibits infection, reduces inflammation, heals and soothes acne. Some sources indicate that zinc reduces androgenic hormonal effects on the skin and help regulate the skin’s oil gland activity thereby benefitting acne. Other sources categorize zinc oxide as an astringent that relieves itching, constricts and tightens skin, and acts as a drying agent, which further explains why zinc helps acne.

Aloe heals, soothes and reduces pain, redness, inflammation and bacteria associated with acne. Aloe vera contains amino acids and potassium that heal, polysaccharides that hydrate, salicylic acid that exfoliates, sterols that reduce inflammation and Vitamins C and E, which combat free radicals that can impede acne. Vitamin C also stimulates collagen and Vitamin E nourishes to promote healing. Aloe vera also contains iron, which allows for better use of oxygen, which p. acnes bacteria dislike.

Panthenol, from vitamin B5, deeply hydrates, moisturizes, desensitizes and speeds healing of acne blemishes. Some sources indicate that panthenol reduces inflammation, exfoliates, fights free radicals and controls bacteria. Panthenol helps metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins which promotes smooth, soft, healthy skin and prevents aging too!

Chamomile is an ideal ingredient for treating acne is it heals, soothes, reduces irritation and calms acne prone skin.
