Treat Hormonal Breakouts and Ageing with Super-Charged Eight Greens

As Éminence evolves and expands its new product offerings, it’s also important to bring light to existing products that offer effective treatments.

Our Eight Greens products are an antioxidant-rich collection formulated with plant hormones (phytoestrogens) to target hormonal acne and treat hormonal ageing. The power of super-charged greens clarifies and clears the skin by normalising oil gland production and helps to prevent breakouts. Natural phytoestrogens repair and revitalise ageing skin, visibly increasing its hydration and elasticity for a firmer, more youthful complexion every day of the year.


Types of Acne

As we age, our estrogen levels drop and testosterone levels begin to rise. This hormonal imbalance results in an increase in oil gland production in the skin, which can clog pores and cause acne. Now that we know the cause of acne, it’s important to be able to understand what the different types look like and how they differ in treatment.

Cystic Acne

Skin Type: Acne prone skin

Appearance: Large, red and painful breakouts found deep in the skin. Cysts are produced and scars  may have already formed. Affected areas include the face, chest, back, upper arms and shoulders.

When: At any age, but most common in the teen years during hormonal changes when an overproduction of sebum occurs.

Recommendation: Treat with the Clear Skin Collection.

Hormonal Acne

Skin Type: Hormonally imbalanced skin

Appearance: Small red bumps, often found along the jawline or around the mouth.

When: At any age, but most common in the teen years, high stress situations, during menstrual cycles or menopause.

Recommendation: Treat with the Eight Greens Collection.


Stages of Ageing

Preventative action comes into play before the signs of ageing begin and correcting starts once they have begun to show. Though the skin solution for a specific individual can generally be determined visually or by age, a person’s lifestyle, diet and exposure to free radicals can also have an effect on what stage they are in the ageing process and what treatment is best suited for their needs.

“Heat Up” Your Routine

While the Eight Greens starter Set contains products that are the perfect size for traveling, the set is also a great way to introduce the collection. In order to present the full range of Eight Greens offerings, we’ve included two of the Eight Greens Phyto Masques in the starter set – one of which provides a hot/ stimulating feeling when applied to the skin. If you prefer the Eight Greens Phyto Masque without the added stimulation, here are some ideas on how you can still use the Eight Greens Phyto Masque – Hot without “heating up” your routine to such a high degree.

  • Use the Eight Greens Phyto Masque two to three times a week and reserve the Eight Greens Phyto Masque – Hot for use when breakouts are more severe or require more intense treatment.
  • Mix 3 parts of the Eight Greens Phyto Masque with 1 part of the Eight Greens Phyto Masque – Hot to turn down the heat.
  • Mix the Eight Greens Phyto Masque – Hot with another gel-based Éminence masque, such as the Stone Crop Masque, or the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Masque.
