Lycopene is an antioxidant that protects your skin from being damaged by UV rays and environmental pollution enhancing skin texture, tightening the loosened skin and reviving the lost elasticity of the skin.
Watermelon is a rich source of vitamin A which reduces the size of the skin pores and minimizes the oil secreted by the sebaceous glands. It contains a rich source of antioxidants like lycopene, Vitamin A and C also an effective treatment for acne, as it helps speed up cell turnover.
White Willow Bark Extract, containing 98% salicin (natural source of salicylic acid), will decrease inflammation, increase skin cells turnover, prevent pore clogging and kill Propionibacterium acnes. This is an important active, as it is both an excellent anti-age active and absolutely essential for acne control.
Pomegranates are loaded with powerful antioxidants and Vitamins, making it beneficial for aging and acne prone skin. Pomegranates prevent breakdown of collagen, promoting cell growth to delay signs of aging and wrinkles. Acts as a natural moisturizer by restoring the PH balance in your skin, while the ellagic acid locks the moisture in. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties in pomegranates along with the high levels of Vitamin C and Zinc, generates skin tissue for minimized acne scarring and speeds up skin healing.

Licorice Extract is a very popular skin whitener and has been used for years to effectively lighten skin discolorations. The main compound for skin whitening is glabridin, a potent skin lightener that inhibits pigmentation by preventing tyrosinase activation. Studies have shown that licorice extract can brighten dull skin while remaining non-toxic to the melanin forming cells.Licorice root also has anti-inflammatory properties and is especially effective at evening out or fading sun tan.
Zinc facilitates apoptosis, or programmed cell death, which is a natural part of your skin renewing itself. If apoptosis is delayed, as in the case of zinc deficiency, skin cells stick together instead of dying and sloughing off like they should, which leads to clogged pores. Zinc kills acne causing bacteria, reduces inflammatory response to bacteria when it invades a blocked pore which can cause severe irritation and reduces keratin (a tough protein that binds skin cells together. Too much keratin prevents cells from separating and leads to blocked pores, as is the case in acne. By reducing keratin zinc helps to keep skin pores open). Zinc is a DHT blocker, meaning it reduces the effect hormones have on the skin (excess sebum production). Zinc is also a powerful antioxidant.
