WORKS WELL WITH YOUR SUNBLOCK TO AVOID OXIDANTS (WHICH AGES YOUR SKIN) DURING THE DAY, BUT NOW RESEARCH SUGGESTS USING IT NIGHTLY WHILE YOUR BODY PRODUCES ITS OWN INTERNAL OXIDANTS AS WELL.

AHA'S COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES.  (LIGHTER SKIN CAN TOLERATE GLYCOLIC, DARKER SKIN TYPES FAVOR LACTIC OR MANDELIC).

BHA'S ARE OIL-SOLUBLE, AND GREAT FOR PORES/SEBUM/ACNE.

PHA'S ARE SUPER GENTLE BECAUSE OF THEIR LARGE MOLECULAR SIZE.

HYALURONIC ACID (HA) IS NOT AN ACID (FOR HYDRATION).

TRANEXAMIC ACID (TXA) IS NOT AN ACID (FOR HYPERPIGMENTATION).

THESE. ARE. NOT. SKIN. BLEACHERS!

THEY MAKE SKIN MORE EVENLY TONED (BY AFFECTING ENZYMATIC STEPS IN THE MELANIN PROCESS).  THESE ARE GREATLY AFFECTED BY AGE, ETHNICITY, INFLAMMATION, AND HORMONES (UM HELLO MELASMA!).  MULTIPLE TREATMENTS (IE MICRONEEDLING, AND LASERS) IN ADDITION TO SKINCARE IS OFTEN NEEDED.  ADD RETINOIDS AND SUNBLOCK TO YOUR CART IF YOU NEED ANY OF THESE!
