Calm Down 100ml
This super-gentle, sensitive skin focused exfoliant contains 4% PHA+BHA acids that give the skin a healthy glow while soothing, protecting, and hydrating the skin.
Perfect for sensitive, redness prone skin types. PHA acids are gentler on the skin than the better known AHAs and similarly remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, without the potential irritation that can occur with high amounts of AHAs. PHAs are also great at moisturising the skin and giving it extra antioxidant protection. BHA/salicylic acid is also a gentle exfoliant known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Geek & Gorgeous combined PHA and BHA acids with several soothing, antioxidant and moisturising ingredients so that Calm Down gently exfoliates but also soothes and hydrates the skin. If you have sensitive skin or looking for a really gentle, almost impossible to overdo exfoliant, this is the one for you.
Calm Down is recommended for sensitive skin types, during the summer, or if you are already using other powerful actives in your routines such as a strong retinoid product.

How to use
IMPORTANT: The product contains BHA, do not use it if you are allergic to Aspirin.
GOOD TO KNOW: This exfoliant contains only acids that do not make the skin more sensitive to the sun, so it is an ideal gentle exfoliant for the summer. (However, UV light being the number one external skin-damaging factor, we still do recommend using a good SPF every morning.)
