Gosh, darn sebum a bit out of control again? #oilyskinproblems Have no fear, the fearless NZ grown kiwifruit 🥝 is here!
Be Gone Fine Lines!
Kiwi Fruit is an excellent hydrating skincare ingredient. It’s a quick and effective response to helping to combat the biggest aging culprit (other than time itself) which is the presence of free radicals in the skin. Nothing (so-far) can turn back time on your skin but the kiwifruit’s antioxidant properties can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The key factor in this being its high vitamin E content which aids in the regeneration of new skin cells. Additionally, its omega 3 properties are effective in fighting off UV damage to the skin.
If you are suffering from acne, kiwifruit is going to be your new best friend! The anti-inflammatory properties can prove to be a fantastic solution for treating acne. These properties can not only prevent acne from forming but also reduce the effect of many other problems associated with it (scarring, congestion etc.). If you’re keen on giving our Kiwifruit & Activated Charcoal Mask a go and are currently using prescribed skincare, please check with your specialist to make sure they’ll make a good team together.
Oily Skin Life
Kiwifruit has a cooling effect that makes it an incredible tool at controlling excess sebum production. It’s rich with amino acids and vitamin C which are essential in controlling the excess production of sebum. Sebum (your natural oils) are fabulous for keeping your skin naturally nourished but with our hormones fluctuating and stress, our bodies can sometimes overproduce it and cause even more problems! Naturally, balancing sebum production is the key to keeping oiler skin under control. So, if you have oily skin, give kiwifruit products a try!
If you are looking to get rid of those annoying dark circles, kiwifruit is just what you need. It works to reduce the appearance of dark circles and works quickly. Not only this, but the regular use of it under the eyes can also reduce puffiness (read anti-inflammatory properties).
Kiwifruit can be an extremely effective facial cleanser. Kiwi Fruit’s vitamin C content is wonderful at cleansing away dirt and impurities from the skin. This same vitamin C content will also leave your face glowing and can brighten your skin tone as well.
At Bees Brilliance we have our very own Kiwifruit & Activated Charcoal Mask – designed to deeply purify oily skin to help exfoliate and control excess oil, leaving the skin feeling clear, balanced and fresh.
