A nighttime serum that gently activates, hydrates, and brightens skin’s appearance. Retinol (a derivative of vitamin A) helps diminish the appearance of breakouts, reduces post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and keeps skin activity optimized to maintain smoother, even toned, and fresher looking skin. A super moisture binder holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Layer moisturizer on top of MBA when your skin feels dry and tight.
Caution: You can avoid the side effects of retinol serum by gradually introducing retinol into your skincare routine. In fact, most retinol serum side effects are mild and temporary. The normal side effects from the proper use of retinol include slightly flushed color and drier-than-usual, lightly peeling skin. Hydrate skin as needed and always use daily sunscreen with an SPF of 30. If you experience excess redness, irritation, and flakiness this is a sign that you are using too much retinol, too often. Simply use less product, less frequently, and be sure to apply moisturizer more frequently.
Warning: In a small percent of the population, retinol may cause an allergic reaction. Unlike skin irritation, the skin becomes increasingly reactive as a result of subsequent use. Symptoms of skin sensitization are: sudden bumps or pimples, pustules, localized swelling and skin blotchiness. If this occurs, stop use immediately and contact your physician for further instructions..
