100 Uses Makeup Remover For Skincare
100 Uses Makeup Remover is likely to make a considerable difference to the following conditions:
How Does 100 Uses Makeup Remover Work?
Organic Jojoba and Organic Witch Hazel bring a lot of healing power to the skin, as well as possessing great astringent and deep cleansing capabilities.
Everybody has heard of Organic Jojoba and we are all accustomed to it being referred to as an oil. But, by rights, Organic Jojoba is actually a wax.
Organic Jojoba is not only special for this reason… It also happens to share a practically identical chemistry to that of the sebum of the skin.
Oxidised hardened sebum that is trapped in our pores is what causes blackheads. (The black colour is not due to dirt, but instead, it’s the oxidised sebum that is trapped in our pores.)
But, a daily application of 100 Uses Makeup Remover means that the Organic Jojoba, with the assistance of the Organic Witch Hazel, works it’s way into clogged pores and begins to liquefy the hardened mass trapped within, eventually allowing it to drain naturally from the pore… usually when it’s being stimulated during a cleansing or exfoliation session.
The exceptional antioxidant and astringent properties of Organic Witch Hazel also go to work within our pores. Organic Witch Hazel kills the bacteria that lives within them.
This is an extremely important action of 100 Uses Makeup Remover. The neutralising of pathogenic bacteria within our pores prevents cellular damage that could result in the development of skin cancer over time.
Killing off pathogenic bacteria is one of the reasons 100 Uses Make-Up Remover helps us to heal more quickly, but it also means that the ageing processes, which cause wrinkles and loss of dermal elasticity, are minimised as well.
Organic Witch Hazel Constituents
Polyphenols, gallate esters, and tannins are the active constituents within Organic Witch Hazel.
Organic Witch Hazel & Excess Oil
Tannins are what make Organic Witch Hazel naturally astringent, because Tannins remove excessive oil from our skin.
Organic Witch Hazel & Acne
Oh yes! Organic Witch Hazel is totally kick ass when it comes to Acne!
Because of it’s antibacterial activity, and it’s natural astringency, Organic Witch Hazel makes an ideal natural Acne treatment.
100 Uses Makeup Remover should be part of everyone’s Acne Treatment Regime.
Organic Witch Hazel & Psoriasis & Eczema
If you have read Psoriasis, Eczema & Acne Causes & Causes you will already know that the same things that prompt us to develop Psoriasis and Eczema are what is causing us to have Acne outbreaks.
Organic Witch Hazel & Ageing
Witch Hazel really tones and tightens the skin, reduces the appearance of large pores, protects collagen and skin elasticity, reduces the appearance of scars and discolouration and repairs skin damage.
Organic Witch Hazel & Skin Cancer
The gallate esters make Organic Witch Hazel polyphenolic, which means that it can help to inhibit cell proliferation in cancerous cells. It has been shown to stop mutated cell cycles and induce a process of apoptosis, whereby cancerous cells die off .
*Apoptosis actually means the die off of all aged cells, not just cancer cells.
Naturally antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, Organic Witch Hazel is a free radical scavenger, which helps it to protect us against DNA damage as well as tumour growth.
According to Dr, Axe:
Oxidative stress and free radical damage build up over time from exposure to things like UV light, pollution, a poor diet, stress and so on. Plants like witch hazel that are high in polyphenols are the same kind used to create anti-aging nutritional supplements that slow down disease development by protecting cells.
Organic Jojoba Constituents
Organic Jojoba is packed full of nutrients like Vitamin E and B Complex Vitamins. It also contains lots of EFA’s, (Essential Fatty Acids), making it ideal for every skin type.
Organic Jojoba & Skin Healing
Vitamin E and B Complex Vitamins in Organic Jojoba make it extremely healing for the skin. Blemishes, outbreaks and signs of ageing are all improved by these nutrients.
Organic Jojoba & Skin Conditions
Like Organic Witch Hazel, Organic Jojoba is great for all skin complaints, including acne, rosacea, vitiligo, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
Organic Jojoba Reduces Oily Skin
Organic Jojoba Is Antimicrobial
The fact that Jojoba is also antimicrobial alongside Organic Witch Hazel, menas that it’s a great back-up buddy for the big guns!
Organic Jojoba For Anti-Ageing
Organic Jojoba is antioxidant, and rich in EFA’s and vitamins, all of which contribute towards it’s anti-ageing abilities. It is one of the most hydrating carrier oils, which means it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How To Use 100 Uses Makeup Remover
Shake bottle well before use.
For make-up removal
Apply a small amount of 100 Uses Makeup Remover to a flannel and gently massage over the face, paying particular attention to the eyelashes, if mascara needs to be removed.
Rinse flannel in hot water and squeeze it out well. Whilst still warm, mop up all make-up residues from the face and rinse the flannel again.
Repeat if necessary.
Then cleanse and tone with a Wild As The Wind Hydrosol
Moisturise with a Wild As The Wind Facial Oil
For other applications
Simply apply the mixture to affected areas and massage into the skin. For Acne breakouts… apply at the first sign of a breakout and reapply several times a day. Also apply several times a day for varicose veins and sore and irritated skin conditions.
100 Uses Makeup Remover can be applied to prevent in-growing hairs and shaving rashes and to slow bleeding from nicks and cuts. It also prevents bacterial growth and hair follicle infection. And, it even soothes razor burn, and prevents in-growing hairs from forming.
If you have sensitive skin or you do a lot of sun bathing then there’s a very slight chance you will have a mild reaction to Wild As The Wind Makeup Remover & Skin Balm.
For this reason we advise you to do a skin patch test on the soft skin on the underside of your forearm before using this product elsewhere on your body.
