HaloAHA + BHA Evening Serum
RESURFACE & REVEAL | 11% AHA + BHA Blend (pH: 4.0)
Glow in the dark and the morning after, too.
FOR: Dull, rough, textured or congested skin that could use an overnight resurface.
"The 11% blend of AHAs (glycolic, lactic, phytic, citric) and BHAs (salicylic acid) gently scoops away dead skin cells and helps clear pores of excess sebum.
Plant oils and humectants buffer the potentially harsh effects of chemical exfoliants by providing nourishing moisture to your skin, so this serum remains balanced and gentle.
Antioxidants and moth bean extract, a natural retinol alternative, repair skin cells and clean up free radicals that cause fine lines and discoloration, and help diminish the appearance of pores." - Holifrog
Even healthy skin has its off days. Incorporating a resurfacing step into your skincare routine that not only exfoliates dead skin cells but also introduces repairing and nourishing helpers is basically the HIIT of skincare. To the eye of the beholder, Halo works to address uneven tone and texture, excess sebum, fine lines, and enlarged pores. But behind the scenes, Halo also repairs skin cell damage and stimulates cell turnover for skin that not only looks renewed but behaves healthier as well.
AHAs (glycolic, lactic, phytic, citric): These chemical exfoliants have smaller-sized water soluble molecules so as not to penetrate the skin, making them surface workers, loosening dead skin cells.
BHA (salicylic acid): This exfoliating acid has a larger-sized oil soluble molecule that can penetrate pores to help rid them of blackheads and excess sebum to decongest and diminish their appearance.
Moth Bean Extract: A natural alternative to retinol, this boosts collagen production and stimulates cell turnover.
Coconut Water & Aloe Leaf Juice: Full of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants, these both possess hydrating as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.
Sodium Hyaluronate: The salt form of hyaluronic acid that’s more skin-compatible than HA.
Rosehip Oil: A regenerative and brightening oil, rosehip oil’s abundant vitamins and antioxidants make this a powerful skin tone evening ingredient.
Tamanu Oil: With anti-inflammatory, wound-healing, and collagen-boosting properties, tamanu oil’s antioxidant- and essential fatty acid-rich makeup have made this a skin hero.
Prickly Pear Oil: Highly hydrating, this cactus-derived oil is rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and omega 6 and 9, which help boost the skin barrier’s health and moisture retention capabilities.
Raspberry Seed Oil: Super anti-inflammatory and moisturizing, this oil’s generous antioxidant and essential fatty acid content help to combat oxidative stress and aid cell regeneration.
Rice Extract: With amino acids, vitamin E and ferulic acid, the protein in rice extract is skin-soothing and hydrating, but also a powerhouse with evening out pigmentation and brightening tone overall.
Watermelon Extract: The vitamin C and antioxidants in this ingredient help to moisturize and exfoliate, while promoting cell regeneration as well.
Lentil Extract: This works in conjunction with other fruit and plant extracts (like watermelon) to help moisturize skin.
Green Tea Leaf Extract: An antioxidant boss, green tea extract repairs free radical damage to skin cells while promoting healthy renewal and cell function.
HOW TO USE:
Apply a thin layer to face and neck after cleansing and toning. Follow with moisturizer. *IMPORTANT* If you are new to AHA's and BHA's start by using this serum 1x a week. You can build up to more times per week as your skim adjusts. If you use too frequently your skin may purge. Can be used nightly, only depending on your skin’s tolerance to acids, but not with other exfoliating products. This serum will help fight breakouts at their root and give you super smooth skin, but use as directed. If you are new to BHA's you may want to start with a lower percentage which can be found in Earth Harbor's Celestine Hydra Plumping Peptide Serum here.
Always wear SPF, especially the day after using Halo.
WARNING External use only. Avoid direct contact with eyes.
