Azelaic Acid for Anti-Acne, Brightening, and Even Skin Tone
2 min read
Azelaic Acid is a naturally occurring acid (dicarboxylic acid) that's typically derived from Barley and is an underrated ingredient for fighting acne, diminishing dark spots and scars, soothing redness and rosacea, evening out skin tone, and brightening the skin. It's also a key ingredient in our Antioxidant Booster.
Our science team chose to formulate with Barley in the Antioxidant Booster for its Azelaic Acid component. This multifunctional yet gentle acid treats an array of skin issues including acne breakouts, scars, pigmentation, redness, dullness, and rough skin texture. It's also a natural exfoliant, so be sure to apply a sun protectant on your skin after the Antioxidant Booster.
How does Azelaic Acid fight acne?
It has been researched that Azelaic Acid has anti-bacterial properties. Bacteria on the skin is one of the causes of acne breakouts, therefore, Azelaic Acid effectively kills the acne bacteria. Additionally, because Azelaic Acid is a natural exfoliant, it helps to loosen skin cells so that they don't clog pores. Azelaic Acid is also effective for evening out skin tone and texture as well as reducing acne scars and sun spots.
Thanks to Azelaic Acid, the Antioxidant Booster has become a skincare staple for many. Just read the below review from a customer:
"On top of being my best skincare discovery of 2018, this is also one of the best skincare products I have ever tried. It absorbs into the skin beautifully and makes my skin look radiant in the way nothing else can. This product alone has helped tone, hydrate, brighten and elevate the way my skin looks—not only instantaneously, but long term as well. It also works wonderfully when layered with other products. This is a must-have product and I am so happy I found it!"
