Acne affects 80% of teens and young adults. And while post acne discoulouration is not uncommon and often disappears on it’s own once the acne has cleared, hyperpigmetation can be spearately targeted. The ingredients with the best evidence for managing acne and pigmentation include Vitamin A, Both Alpha and Beta Hydroxy acids and Vitamin B3 and 4 – butylresorcinol, all of which included in your kit. While the kit is well tolerated and rarely results in sensitivity, in order to help the skin get accustomed to the active nature of this regime, we have a starter kit, which we recommend using for the first 3 – 4 weeks.

Enlighten – A tyrosinase inhibitor (4-n-butylresorcinol) and antioxidant (Niacinamide) based cream to lighten and brighten skin appearance and provide a more even skin tone. Niacinamide provides visible improvements within 3 weeks. 4-n-butylresorcinol significantly improves outcomes after 2 – 3 months of continuous use. For management of hyperpigmentation and age spots.

Zinc Shade Zinc based daily moisturiser. Zinc Shade provides the protection you need from both UVA (ageing) and UVB (burning) rays. UVB (burning) rays are strongest in summer in the middle of the day and are what causes sunburn – a major risk factor for skin cancer. UVA (ageing) rays of the sun which are constant throughout the year and the day and can even penetrate glass (reaches indoors). UVA not only prematurely ages the skin, but may also lead to and exacerbate melanoma – a deadly form of skin cancer. Zinc Shade may also be used as a Make Up primer.

Smooth SerumSmooth Serum – Hydroxy acid exfoliating serum for use at night. Renews the skin by promoting skin cell turnover. The result: a more balanced and smoother skin and a more even skin tone.

Vitamin A is the ingredient with the strongest anti-ageing evidence and Retinal is the most effective and least irritating form of Vitamin A. It promotes collagen growth, increases skin elasticity and in combination with hydroxy acids, clears acne effectively and without irritation. Vitamin B3 improves the skin barrier function and promotes an even skin tone, reducing sun spots and uneven pigmentation.* For repair and rejuvenating normal, oilier and thicker skin types and for management of mild to moderate acne. *Suspend use of Vitamin A products if pregnant or breastfeeding.
