When browsing the MUAC/ BellEvolve website, you'll notice that we suggest companion products to many of our items on the product pages to help you select appropriate items and take away some of the guess work. But there are some rules when it comes to making perfect matches'
Here are some to keep in mind for the future!
Pair Acids with Non Acids
This may sound super obvious, but when purchasing an acid serum or a chemical peel, we always suggest a gentle cleanser, toner and moisturizer to use during the time you're under 'œthe influence' of acids. Using too many acidic products at once will cause stress and sever redness, even burning of your skin. It's always critical to combine soothing, gentle non-acidic products during the days you're using chemical peels or serums. Some of our suggested products are:
- MUAC Argan Oil for moisturizing
- MUAC Cucumber Toner for a gentle, soothing toner
- MUAC Sea Mineral Toner for a nourishing, gentle toner
- MUAC Rosewater Hydrosol Mist for again, soothing gentle moisture
- MUAC Wild Oat and Honey Cleanser (an excellent gentle choice)
Sensitive Skin? Pair a Soothing Cleanser/Toner with an Enzyme Peel
Let's face it, some acids and retinoids are just too harsh some skin, especially super sensitive skin.Thus, pairing gentle products with enzyme based products is a very good idea. That's because enzymes offer gentle exfoliation for skin that can't handle acids. Our MUAC Triple Enzyme Peel is an excellent choice for sensitive skin, paired up with our Papaya Enzyme Cleanser our soothing Cucumber Toner.
Pair Acne Products with Argan Oil (or similar moisturizers)
Often times, acne sufferers are pretty harsh to their skin as they use many strong products to treat the acne (such as our MUAC TCA Peel ). But, skin also needs to be soothed and moisturized especially during acne treatments so that it doesn't actually product MORE oil/ more breakouts. Skin can actually undergo an overdose of harsh acids and go haywire, which causes even MORE breakouts. Thus, we always suggest an oil free non-comodogenic moisturizer such as Argan Oil, coconut oil, or our MUAC Green Tea-Pomegranate Moisturizer (which is oil free) to sooth skin and protect it.
