Balancing the Microbiome: a Revolutionary Route to Clearer Skin

Your skin is home to millions of perfectly balanced, individual bacteria known as your microbiome. Your microbiome protects like a second layer of skin. Scientific research shows that bacteria can sense and “talk” to each other to form a group. And as a group, these bacteria can throw off skin barrier balance, triggering the irritation associated with breakouts, including maskne. Clarifying Water Gel contains innovative technology that interrupts communication so bacteria can’t form a group and cause an imbalance. The result? Your microbiome stays balanced, dryness is reduced, and you see clearer, healthier-looking skin!
