The gentle action of the colloidal minerals remove bacterial impurities associated with breakouts, the botanical extracts nourish the skin, while the spherical structure of the plant beads exfoliate, removing dull, dead skin cells to reveal healthy, smooth skin. This gentle yet very effective action also prevents oil from getting trapped under dead skin thus preventing the formation of blackheads. The Rose Geranium Micro-Gel Gommage is recommended for use on aging skin types. This product also promotes the production of collagen and elastin, two major anti-aging components. For best results use 2-3 times a week. Do not use on irritated or broken skin.
