If you’re looking for something to ease away your skin booboos from those random breakouts, here’s a serum to restore your skin to its original glory. Not only does it shoo away all those blemishes, but it also makes sure new cells are being generated for stronger and healthier skin using a skin purifying botanical, Kigelia africana. This is the perfect antibacterial and anti-inflammatory solution to calm and soothe distressed skin.
The Kigelia africana, a long sausage-shaped fruit sourced from the Malawians in South Africa, is known for its medicinal properties. Possessing antibacterial hormones, flavonoids and phenolic compounds (Asian Journal of Plant Science and Research 2015), it’s antioxidant and antibacterial qualities help plump up your skin while protecting it from free radicals. This serum is ideal for those with combination, oily, irritated, sensitive or post-treatment skin. This can be used right after the Luxe Botanics Marula Hydrating Pre Cleanser, followed by the Camu Brightening Cleanser for an overall skincare routine.
