Beat acne the Russian way

Beat acne the Russian way

Parenie is the Russian way of beating acne. It refers to the method of whipping the skin with birch twigs after a steam in a sauna or shower or ‘Banya’, Russian for steam room, in order to boost circulation and release toxins from the skin and aid skin regeneration.

If you find yourself breaking out but can’t make it to a Russian Banya, then perhaps try Clarol’s Silver & Birch Exfoliating Wash at home after a steam in the shower. This wonder product, which contains birch bark does the same job, but in a slightly less aggressive manner! 

Designed to help detoxify acne-prone skin, this birch bark exfoliant uses ancient Russian methods to help clear congestion and increase skin recovery.

Clarol Silver & Birch Exfoliating Wash has a 4-way action to help clear, smooth and re-balance acne-prone skin.

Action 1 - Detoxification & cleansing
Birch Bark contains natural equivalents of both salicylic acid and methyl salicylate, two synthetic chemicals commonly used in anti-acne products. It detoxifies and cleanses the skin but does not dry or damage it like many chemical treatments do.                                                                          

This ingredient also contains betulin to help reduce inflammation in acne-prone skin and Lupeol and Erythrodiol which studies prove can help increase the production of proteins in skin cells to speed up the healing process.

Action 2 – Skin Flora Re-Balancing
Silver & Birch Exfoliating Wash contains MicroSilver ™, a natural and smart anti-bacterial agent that kills off bad acne bacteria without damaging good skin bacteria, effectively re-balancing skin flora and leaving acne-prone skin clearer and stronger.

Action 3 - Exfoliation
Exfoliation helps remove dead and infected skin cells on the skin’s surface that can trigger acne and helps skin re-generate new and healthy skin cells.

The Birch Bark itself along with Pumice Stone and Rice Bran are used to naturally and effectively exfoliate and remove dirt and dead skin cells.

Action 4 - Skin Smoothing
Extracts of Bladderwrack and White Nettle help calm down bumpy skin, while Coffee Seed extract helps dilate open pores.

For best results, use on slightly damp skin when pores are open after a steam in a hot shower or bath.

Clarol Silver & Birch Exfoliating Wash is FREE from parabens, perfumes, SLS and MI and is a 100% vegan and cruelty-free product.
