Each time I ask myself: what would I want for my skin? What really works? My main motivation is helping people get more beautiful skin. With good advice and no nonsense products.
The Serum can also be used around your eyes. You can apply it until around the eye socket, or – if it goes well - apply it directly under your eyes. Be careful not to let the product go into your eyes. As the serum reduces fine lines and counteracts collagen breakdown, it is a must in the battle against those nasty crow’s feet.
The Serum is extraordinarily soft making it also suitable for sensitive (Rosacea) skin. The product contains an effective and mild form of Vitamin A. Moreover, the product contains soothing and skin barrier repairing ingredients. As we advise with all the other products containing active substances, this product should be introduced gradually. If you have sensitive skin – or perhaps Rosacea – begin with once or twice a week. If this goes well, you can eventually apply the Serum every evening.
No medical warning applies for cosmetic anti-ageing creams with retinoids, such as our Vitamin A Serum. However, we still advise for security, not to use this product during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. Women who were unaware of their pregnancy, while using the Serum on their skin, need not be concerned. That has been confirmed in a recent study (2015) into the use of medicinal creams with Vitamin A Acid during pregnancy.
You can use the Serum - after having gradually increased it – every evening. If you use the Serum every day (two pumps per day) it will last you for approximately four months.
Our Salicylic Acid or Glycolic Acid Exfoliant reduces the connection between the cells in the uppermost skin layer. This makes it easier for dead skin cells to shed. The vitamin A in the Serum also helps reduce the layer of dead skin cells. But with this it occurs because the cell division is stimulated from the inside out. If you use the Exfoliant as well, you can alternate this step with the Serum. You use the products every other day in the evening. The Exfoliant makes sure that the Serum (and the Moisturizer) are more effective in the skin.
If you want to use both products each day, then we advise that you use the Exfoliant in the morning and the Serum in the evening. Always allow the Serum to absorb in for around ten minutes before applying the Moisturizer.
