*We recommend using either the AHA Exfoliating Peel or the Vitamin A Serum as your exfoliant.
Can I wear this during the day?
Anytime you exfoliate (whether it is with a scrub, alpha hydroxy acids, a cleansing brush, etc.) you should be extra diligent about protecting your skin from the sun as you are revealing new skin cells that are more susceptible to damage. We recommend that our Vitamin A Serum be used at night and sunscreen and a hat be used during the day to protect the skin.
Can I use this while pregnant or nursing?
We always recommend contacting your health care provider directly regarding questions about ingredients that can be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. That said, this product does contain vitamin A which is the ingredient in our line that is usually advised against during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Can I layer with the AHA Exfoliating Peel?
We normally recommend alternating use of vitamin A (such as retinoids) with alpha hydroxy acids at night rather than layering them as they can over-exfoliate and irritate the skin when used together. Our AHA Exfoliating Peel contains a gentle, yet effective blend of glycolic and lactic acids making it a great option for exfoliation. You can follow with a moisturizer a few minutes later so that the serum has time to fully absorb into the skin.
What is the percentage of vitamin A in this serum?
We use approximately 1%-2% HPR in our Vitamin A Serum to deliver an effective product that does not cause irritation for most.
What are the benefits of this serum?
The Vitamin A Serum is formulated to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, diminish the appearance of age spots and skin discoloration, and improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
