Step 1: Phloretin CF 30ml 

 

Who is it for?  

Phloretin CF is suitable for combination, oily and blemish-prone skin that’s prone to dark spots and photo damage.  

 

What does it do? 

This potent daytime vitamin C serum is formulated with three antioxidants: 10% pure vitamin C  [l-ascorbic acid], 2% phloretin and 0.5% ferulic acid. Together these ingredients help to protect the skin against free radical damage and improve skin tone and texture. Fine lines, dullness and discolouration are also improved.  

 

When should you apply it? 

Apply 4-5 drops of Phloretin CF each morning after cleansing to the face, neck and chest and follow with your usual moisturiser.  

 

Step 2: Discoloration Defense Serum

 

Who is it for?  

Discoloration Defense Serum is for combination and oily skin types and for anyone wanting to improve the appearance of discolouration. It is also clinically tested to be effective on all ethnicities.  

 

What does it do? 

This corrective serum is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of discolouration including brown patches and post-blemish marks with 1.8% tranexamic acid and 5% niacinamide. It also helps to improve overall skin tone and reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion.  

 

When should you apply it? 

Apply 3-5 drops of Discoloration Defense Serum to the face, neck and chest each morning after applying Phloretin CF. You can also use this serum in the evening on alternate nights to Retinol 0.3. Do not apply Discoloration Defense Serum on broken or irritated skin.  

 

Step 3: Retinol 0.3 30ml 

 

Who is it for? 

This night-time corrective cream is suitable for those who have never used retinol before and want to target ageing signs such as fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration. 

 

What does it do? 

SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3% is formulated with pure retinol and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. It does this with an encapsulated form of pure retinol for controlled delivery that has the potency of retinol without causing irritation. 

 

When should you apply it? 

Apply a pea-sized amount in the evening to a clean, dry face. Initially, apply twice weekly, gradually increasing to every other night once your skin has become used to it. Wait 30 minutes after applying other products to allow the Retinol 0.3 to absorb into the skin. 

 

CAUTION: When using Retinol 0.3 and Discoloration Defense Serum, we recommend allowing a 3 week acclimation period before introducing Discoloration Defense Serum as part of the nightly regimen. Once skin is accustomed to retinol, alternate use of Retinol 0.3 with Discoloration Defense Serum.
