Perhaps you’ve been there. After tossing and turning all night thinking about everything going on at work and in the world, you wake up with that telltale sign of stress: a throbbing, red, blemish. And you just need relief.
If you’ve got Clarity Purifying Concentrate on the shelf, you’re in luck. What is one of the wonder ingredients in this formulation that battles breakouts and nourishes your skin? Introducing olive leaf extract.
OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT BENEFITS
For centuries, people have been using olive leaf extract (Olea Europaea) to help soothe skin inflammation and wounds, and promote enduring skin health.
Here are all the ways olive leaf extract provides intensive and long-lasting care for your skin:
Kills bacteria and purifies pores
With potent microbial properties, olive leaf extract kills bacteria and fungus to help skin inflammation heal faster.
Have you ever applied our Clarity Purifying Concentrate just before bed on a blemish threatening to take over your entire forehead, only to wake up and find a tiny, pale reminder of its outpost? Then you know how quickly this concentrate’s ingredients almost magically heal overnight. Killing bacteria in the pores is a can’t-miss first step in reducing inflammation and irritation, and olive leaf extract makes this possible.
By regulating and reducing blood flow, olive leaf extract quickly returns the skin to its natural tone. This extract can also help balance overall skin tone as it reduces melanin and its hyper-pigmentation.
Olive leaf extract brings an astringent quality and tightening action that shrinks pores and makes them less vulnerable to bacteria, toxins and breakouts.
Yes, olive leaf can be used topically on the skin—directly as a spot treatment or for maintenance along with other skincare.
PRO TIP: Add one drop of our Clarity purifying serum to our cleansers, moisturizers and masks to maintain skin clarity.
ENDURING SKIN HEALTH
Fortifies the skin over time
As an anti-oxidant, olive leaf extract helps prevent cellular damage that can be caused by exposure to light, air and heat over time.
Promotes cellular turnover and radiance
Improved circulation to skin cells promotes new cell growth, revealing soft, fresh skin, which is especially beneficial for acne and skin in later stages of life. By shedding skin cells that have been exposed to environmental toxins, olive leaf extract aids the detoxification process and reveals healthy, rejuvenated skin.
For all of these reasons and more, olive leaf is a super extract just as powerful as you are.
