Oily Skin & Blemishes
Oily skin happen when overactive sebaceous glands produce an excess of sebum, making the skin appear shiny and feel greasy.
Recent research has shown differences between the microbiome in dry, oily and combination skin. Specific bacteria on skin have also been linked to inflammatory skin conditions. For instance, acne pimples are often caused by the proliferation of a bacterium called C. acnes in the skin’s microbiome.
At Gallinée, we offer a gentle but very effective approach to regulate excess sebum and minimise blemishes. Our patented complex of pre- pro and postbiotics helps rebalancing the skin microbiome, feeding the beneficial bacteria to prevent the growth of undesirable bacteria.
Step 0 Clear skin from the inside out
Acne is often caused by an imbalance of skin bacteria. Harness the power of probiotics to help your body fight off bad bacteria, and enhance your skincare routine with dietary supplements to boost the benefits from the inside out.
Our Clear & Microbiome supplement is a new generation ingestible skin clarifying treatment for acne-prone skin. This ultra concentrated blend combines live probiotics, nettle & zinc, engineered to tackle the root cause of blemishes.

Step 1 Gently cleanse
It's important to gently cleanse your skin in the morning and remove any makeup and the daily grime at the end of the day.
Choose gentle skin care products: it is counterproductive to strip your skin of the good bacteria that are present to protect your skin barrier. These bacteria prevent the growth of undesirable bacteria.
Soap-free and skin-friendly, the Foaming Cleanser gently cleanses, softens and evens the complexion. It reduces redness and eliminates impurities, keeping the bacteria P.acnes at bay and maintaining good bacteria for blemish-free skin.

STEP 3 Refine your pores
Toners with a gentle astringent ingredient such as acetic acid will help regulate sebum production and minimise appearance of the pores.
It's also beneficial to lower the pH of your skin using products containing lactic acid, which has a lowered pH, helps to restore the balance of a healthier skin microbiome because acne bacteria thrive in a more alkaline pH environment.
Our Face Vinegar contains a prebiotic that helps calm stressed skin and prevents irritation, alongside postbiotics that nurture the skin's good bacteria.
It also contains astringent and antioxidant-packed apple cider vinegar to purify, refine the pores, regulate sebum production, protect and stimulate cellular renewal.

STEP 4 Target blemishes
C. Acnes is a bacterium found on human skin, accounting for 60% of the face microbiome. Some strains of C. Acnes are known to trigger inflammation & acne, whilst the majority of other strains are essential to skin health, supporting the development of good bacteria on the skin.
Our Vinegar Gelée is an innovative solution to tackle imperfections with a pro-bacterial approach. This anti-blemish serum works with your skin’s ecosystem, reducing the inflammatory C. Acnes bacteria and promoting the non-inflammatory strains that contribute to healthy skin. This potent complex reduces and fades blemishes, improves skin texture, soothes and rebalances skin without stripping its microbiome.
Apply a few drops day and/or night after cleansing directly on dry skin, targeting affected areas or all over your face if needed.Add to bag
Step 5 Lightly Moisturise & Protect
Apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer to hydrate your skin without clogging pores, and feed the good bacteria present on your skin to starve the bad ones: certain prebiotics can slow down the growth of C. acnes, the bacteria responsible for blemishes.
The Hydrating Face Cream evens out the complexion and rebalances moisture for a mattifying effect. By rebuilding the skin's barrier function, our patented complex of probiotics, prebiotics and lactic acid reduces the appearance of pimples thanks to the anti-inflammatory action of good bacteria. Your skin is fresh, radiant and smooth.
Apply twice a day.
