Ombu | Maiko Facial Tonic
Maiko Mattifying Facial Tonic is ideal for reducing large pores, blackheads and removing impurities from the skin, providing a velvety matte finish. Its formula, rich in rice starch, helps give the skin a matte finish, regulating the activity of the sebaceous glands and reducing excess sebum. This toning solution of glycolic acid and plant extracts provides gentle exfoliation for more luminous skin. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use.
INGREDIENTS AND THEIR PROPERTIES
It is a good absorber of humidity, excess oil on the skin and odours, which is why it is usually used in deodorant products and facial cleaning products, and can be used on all types of skin. It is also used as a substitute for talc as it softens the skin and also has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties and is very useful for irritated skin, eliminating itching.
This alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) acts as an exfoliant and chemical peel as it promotes the desquamation of the outer layers of the skin. This allows the cells to be renewed and to obtain a more luminous and youthful appearance. In addition, it stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin so that it visibly fills in fine lines and external wrinkles. It is very effective in the treatment of scars, helping to unify colour and preventing the appearance of acne.
Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera provides calming and refreshing properties, which help to alleviate skin irritations and burns. It contains a wide range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which reduce skin ageing by neutralising the free radicals that cause oxidative stress.
Oat milk has soothing, softening, anti-inflammatory, emollient and nutritive properties. It is used to eliminate skin irritation, whether due to allergies, dermatitis, eczema or any other problem that heals with itching and dryness. It maintains the skin barrier and protects against external aggressions, thus preventing dehydration.
HOW TO USE IT
1. Before using Maiko, you must shake it until all the rice starch is well mixed. This way you will get a great mattifying result.
2. The tonic should be applied after the facial cleaning and before the moisturizing cream. We recommend using it every night in your cleaning routine.
3. You can soak one or two cotton discs in the product and spread them over the face with light touches or directly with your fingers.
4. Do not apply to irritated, sensitive or damaged skin. Avoid contact with the eyes.
