But how does Chaga work in achieving clear, healthy skin?
In our next series, we will explore How Chaga Works as the active ingredient and differentiator in all of our products to soothe, smooth, heal, and protect.
First up, acne.
We received this question recently and want to share our response.
Same, girl. Same. 2020 has ravaged our skin. With over-washing, sanitizing, blocking fresh air from entering our pores, and stress, it seems like every appendage on our bodies could use some serious support.
Luckily Chaga has the ability to calm, soothe, clear, and protect.
To truly understand how this happens, let’s first talk about what acne is. Acne is caused when pores are blocked, sometimes by heavy makeup and lotions (and sometimes by masks!). Bacteria builds up underneath the skin’s surface and can trigger inflammation and infection resulting in more severe acne.
Here’s how Chaga can clear, soothe, and protect.
First, Chaga is antibacterial and antimicrobial, meaning: it’s a natural cleanser that fights bacteria. Chaga clears skin deep beneath the surface, flushing out pores and destroying bad bacteria in a gentle, all-natural and effective way. It also contains naturally occurring betulinic acid, which is an anti-inflammatory. This property combats redness and swelling, which can often cause pesky blocked pores to become much more of a painful (and embarrassing!) experience.
How to Use It
True North Beauty has two products that are specifically designed to clear and prevent acne.
First, the Solid Cleanser.
Second, the Facial Serum.
The Facial Serum is especially effective in fighting hormonal acne. Yes, it may seem counterintuitive to combat a breakout with oil, but hear me out: our serum’s highly concentrated treatment oils are able to penetrate deep into skin, reaching blocked pores and clearing impurities. With the rich properties of our signature Chaga-Infused Formula, our Facial Serum also works to soothe and smooth skin, leaving a healthy, youthful glow.
And this is why we trust Chaga.
And why we feel confident recommending it with equal enthusiasm to those with breakouts and those wanting to clear fine lines and wrinkles. Chaga has the distinct ability to address so many different skin issues. While I have friends who used to say “ I can’t use that because my skin is too oily” or “my skin is too sensitive to try new things,” Chaga is the one ingredient I’ve consistently found to be clean, natural, and all-encompassing of skin care needs.
And all of those friends with different skincare concerns can use the product with equally amazing results.
Each time you use Chaga to cleanse and hydrate your skin, the natural properties address the signs of aging, keep skin smooth and tight, and clear and prevent breakouts.
So when we’re finally able to get rid of our masks for good, I promise you have what you need to have clear, bright, beautiful skin for all of those parties and hugs!
