LEMON, ORANGE, & MAPLE?
These 3 ingredients may seem like unlikely candidates, but they actually happen to be awesome natural skincare saviors! For starters, sugar maple extract is created from Maple trees that are native to North America and reach super heights of up to 115 feet. Not only is this tree a provider of maple syrup- a Canadian fav, but it also acts as a natural AHA [alpha hydroxy acid] that can aid in free radical destruction and repairing cells.
As for oranges, they are rich in Vitamin C which helps smooth skin, boost radiance, an improve discoloration & the signs of aging. Lastly, let's take a look at the lemon: this juice is a natural exfoliant, brightener, and antiseptic that will assist with discoloration too :)
Lemon extract or juice can be used to fight acne as a natural remedy as well. I recently found a great product from MD Complete that contains all 3 of these ingredients AND more to make one awesome at-home peel treatment :) Make sure to check out the bonus product The Beauty Closet is recommending today from MD Complete skincare, the Clarifying Cleanser!
THE BEAUTY CLOSET RECOMMENDS:
Non-Irritating Pro Peel
I'm a big fan of at-home peels! As long as they are used with caution, they are a fantastic way to keep your skin looking fabulous- even during the colder and sometimes harsher winter months. This product from MD Complete is the perfect peel- it's not irritating, but still shows its effectiveness with just the first application. I chose to the follow the provided instructions which do advise to apply 5 times over the coarse of the same amount of days, increasing your application time with each use.
I have breakouts and occasional acne issues and this definitely helped in keeping them at bay. It not only contains all 3 of the powerful ingredients I mentioned above, but it doesn't cost tons of cash as many at-home peels out there do. The smell is non-annoying and it quickly absorbs into the skin. I was overall, very happy with how clear, smooth, and soft my skin ended up feeling after each usage :)
For a great cleanser, look no further than this one from MD Complete! This is the perfect cleanser for almost all skin types, even those that are breakout-prone or with super-sensitive skin such as myself. I love how clean my skin really does feel after using this cleanser and I liked that it wasn't overpowering or irritating.
It's moderately priced too, making it a good deal in my book as well. The one does a great job of doing just what it says it will do: cleanse your skin without over-drying and leaving behind residue, while fighting acne and preventing breakouts.
