Kick hyperpigmentation and acne scarring to the curb with the help of the Discoloration Duo. The two-time Best of Beauty Award-winning Phloretin CF is no ordinary vitamin C serum, as the brightening ingredient is flanked by phloretin and ferulic acid for additional stabilization. Go on the dark spot defense with Discoloration Defense, a spot corrector that excels in treating stubborn post-acne marks, thanks to a powerful elixir of kojic acid, niacinamide, and tranexamic acid.
The Face and Neck Regimen ensures you don’t forget that your skin-care routine only covers your face. In fact, “the neck area has thin, sensitive skin compared to other parts of the body,” Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, previously told Allure. “Combine that with gravity and the constant craning over smartphones, and it’s an area uniquely at risk for fine lines and sagging.” Utilize a neck cream like the Tripeptide-R Neck Repair, which is formulated with 0.2-percent pure retinol, a 2.5-percent tripeptide concentrate, and a five-percent glaucine complex (a type of poppy plant) to firm your fragile neck skin.
The Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is the perfect wintertime moisturizer as it’s spiked with barrier-restoring ceramides, natural cholesterol, and fatty acids (in a 2:4:2 ratio, as the name suggests) to help your skin repair itself and boost a smooth, radiant complexion with regular use.
Not only does the Nighttime Regimen Set include the aforementioned Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2, but it also packs a double-whammy of fine-line-minimizing treatments. Resveratrol B E is a lightweight gel-like serum that contains one percent pure, stable resveratrol, which is a super antioxidant that’s known for supporting the skin’s natural repair processes. Retinol 0.5 contains 0.5 percent pure retinol that’s released steadily so that you get the pore-minimizing, fine-line-blurring, and discoloration-evening benefits over a longer period of time. Lesson learned: make your skin care work harder while you snooze.
If hydration is your end goal, opt for the Hydrating Regimen Set, which brings together the Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier, A.G.E. Interrupter, and A.G.E. Eye Complex For Dark Circles.
