DIRECTIONS 1.Cleanse the area around troubled spot. Use after an exfoliator or before the toner step. 2. Select a bigger size patch than the spot. 3. Attach the patch on dry skin.
Thoughts: It’s a perfect covering to heal breakouts. It’s more easy to peel off with new design that slit off to the middle compare to Acne pimple master patch(the old version).

*The word Propolis is reputed to have been coined by Aristotle, from the Greek words “pro” (before) and “polis” (city), meaning, “Before The City”, or “Defender Of The City”.
Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce from tree buds sap flows. When they combine the sap with their own discharges and beeswax, they create a sticky, greenish-brown product used as a coating to build their hives. as well as function as a natural disinfectant against bacteria.Using Propolis in skin care products provides a similar defense for our skin.
SCIENCE &HEALTH BENEFITS
Propolis is the focus of many scientific research projects surrounding it’s healing properties.
As an antimicrobial, preliminary scientific studies show that some types of propolis have in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity and that is why it may be very effective when fighting acne. Propolis is also known in science as an antioxidant, an emollient and is being studied for skin cancer treatment and cancer prevention. Our innovative process of propolis keeps up to 98% of its natural features and uses its properties to naturally restore and maintain skin structure.
Propolis is commonly used for its healing, antiseptic and restorative capabilities. Propolis will assist in balancing, healing and soothing problematic skin. It also accelerates the rate of cell growth and decongests pores. Propolis protects against bacteria and functions as a great anti-inflammatory agent.
Propolis has been used for medicinal purposes since before 350 BC.
The ancient Greeks used propolis to treat abscesses, Assyrians used it to help heal wounds and tumors, and Ancient Egyptians used propolis for mummification.
Alongside enjoying the great effects of honey & milk baths, the gorgeous Egyptian Pharaoh Cleopatra started using propolis, a mystic, powerful ingredient that was used during the embalming process. Propolis was known for its preserving abilities and effective treatments, and she applied these traits to her skin.In ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the most admired figure in the history of medicine, would use propolis to heal infections and wounds.
It’s no wonder propolis is one of Hey Honey’s foundation ingredients!
**Cassia Obtusifolia seed extract- it’s primarily used as a skin conditioning agent because of its high content of polysaccharides. In vitro tests have isolated the plant’s polysaccharides (Galactomannan) and shown them to mimic hyaluronic acid. Furthermore, studies demonstrated it to effectively repair dryness, provide long lasting suppleness & moisture, exhibit film-forming capacities and retain water on the surface of both skin and hair. In can also function as an anti-inflammatory and treatment for acne. You may find this botanical ingredient in cosmetic products such as sunscreen, foundation, facial moisturizer/lotion, anti-aging treatment, cleanser, hand & eye cream, skin fader/lightener, facial masque and toner.

💠WHY choose Good Morning Mildly Acidic Cleanser?
Human skin’s natural pH is around 5. This slightly acidic environment offers ideal environment for skin.
Don’t get yourself fooled. Washing with water only in the morning is not acceptable even after the perfect wash day before at night.
Skin produces dead skins and sebum while you sleep. Mildly acidic cleanser softly removes those wastes and leaves skin hydrated all day long.
With Low pH Cleanser, make your skin environment healthy and protect your skin barrier.

3. Becomes super dry in the afternoon (My skin is so dehydrated..)

6. Feels uncomfortable with normal cleansers on the market (This is painful!)

————-I googled ingredients I’m not familiar for its deets.Look below if you are also curious like me:
*Styrax Japonicus- (Japanese snowbell) for Skin Conditioning.
**Saccharomyces Ferment-This ingredient is a water-like substance made from fermenting and filtering yeast. It is naturally high in minerals, amino acids, beta glucan, and vitamins. The fermentation process breaks down molecules, that can easily penetrate the dermis to soothe, hydrate, brighten, and repair.
***Cryptomeria Japonica Leaf Extract;-This natural extract from (Japanese cedar) buds is rich in energizing phytochemicals and is designed to stimulate epidermal renewal. It rebuilds the epidermis and restores efficient skin barrier function. Thus, the smooth, soft texture of young and fresh skin is restored.
^Nelumbo Nucifera-(Lotus) strong possibility for whitening and anti-wrinkle functional cosmetic agent.
^^Pinus Palustris-(Pine Needles) helps to fight free radicals.
^^^Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract;- (Elm)great skin moisturizer,anti-inflammatory and photoprotective properties.

2. Wash off with lukewarm water
This is my first time to use a Low Ph Cleanser. It surprisingly leaves my skin clean, removes oil and dirt and maintains my normal skin ph without making it dry,irritated,or having a tightness feeling.This product is also impressively loaded with botanical ingredients that gives a lot of benefits to my skin. I am using a dime size clear gel and it lathers easily.
