Why do we love it?
A lightweight, fast absorbing exfoliating liquid that is designed to treat combination skin gently, but effectively. The duo of mandelic and salicylic acid exfoliates both the surface of the skin as well as inside the pores, it’s both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
The acid duo is joined by Sarcosine, an amino-acid derivative that further helps to tighten up enlarged pores and balance oil production. With regular use, Cheer Up fights several of the typical problems of combination to oily skin including enlarged pores, extra oil production, blackheads, acne, and post-acne marks.
Cheer Up is non-irritating and non-drying, and it’s the best friend for combination and/or problem-prone skin.
How to use?
It can be used as first step after cleansing your skin. Use it as a toner, either with a (reusable) cotton pad or pour it into your hands and pat it. Follow it up with your favourite serums and moisturizers.Avoid using around the eye area!
You can use Cheer Up from every other day to twice a day depending on your skin’s level of tolerance. For most skin types, once a day use is ideal.
If you are only starting now with chemical exfoliation, phase application in gradually:
- 1st – 2nd weeks: Use it twice a week
- 3rd – 4th weeks: every other night
- 5th week onwards: every night
IMPORTANT: Mandelic acid might make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Use sunscreen everyday as the last step of your morning routine!
