NOTE: The information provided in this section is specific to Australia.
It’s not just your face that shows the effects of environmental ageing, so there’s no need to stop at your face when applying REVERSE Regimen. REVERSE Regimen can be used on your neck and décolleté. However, be aware that skin is more delicate on the neck and chest, so you may need to ramp up more slowly and use as tolerated.
REVERSE Regimen is safe for use on all skin tones. Richer skin tones are more prone to unevenness due to discolouration. REVERSE Regimen is clinically tested to help visibly even skin tone to reveal your most radiant and natural complexion. Please visit the Solution Tool for a customised routine.
If you are considering waxing while using REVERSE Regimen, we recommend that you discontinue REVERSE Regimen three days before your waxing and wait three days before continuing the Regimen after waxing. REVERSE Regimen contains Retinol and exfoliators, which may make your skin sensitive and prone to irritation and redness after waxing. It is advisable to test the wax on a small area first.
The REVERSE Brightening Regimen brightens with Kojic Acid and Bearberry Extract, and also exfoliates skin with Alpha-hydroxy Acids to gently remove dulling, dead skin cells for a smooth, fresh complexion. This assists in lifting the darkness off the skin to help rapidly develop brighter skin. If skin is feeling dry, simply add a moisturizer over the Dual Active Brightening Complex.
The Brightening Regimen does not contain a moisturizer so that it can be used by all skin types. If the skin is normal to dry, simply layer a moisturizer over the Dual Intensive Brightening Complex. We suggest either the SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment or SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream.
1. Read the entire REVERSE Regimen brochure and take advantage of the concise information, directions and tips regarding your skin. REVERSE products address the appearance of brown spots, dullness and discolouration.
2. REVERSE Regimen should be introduced slowly over the first three weeks of use, using a gentle cleanser, toner, moisturiser and sunscreen when not using the Regimen.
3. Avoid other forms of exfoliation such as scrubs, peels, mechanical brushes, wash cloths, professional treatments and moisturisers with Retinol or AHAs as you ramp up to twice a day.
4. Be gentle and allow the products to do the work. Just use the fingertips to gently massage the REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash evenly over the face. Allow exfoliators to buff off dulling, dry dead skin cells.
5. Avoid the sun and seek shade and re-apply sunscreen every two hours.
6. If skin begins to feel dry, layer a moisturiser over the REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex.
7. Once you have ramped up to using REVERSE products twice daily, you may add in the REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller as directed and tolerated.
We suggest to take a break from using REVERSE Regimen while on holiday. It can be more difficult to practise sun avoidance so be sure to use your sunscreen every two hours, and wear a large brimmed hat, sunglasses and seek shade. Perhaps you can switch to REDEFINE Regimen.
Do your best to avoid new sun damage, and simply begin REVERSE Regimen again when you return from holiday.
We are pleased to hear that you are being “sun-smart” by using self-tanning products and avoiding the sun which can cause pigmentation problems and other skin damage.
Self-tanning products for face/body may be used along with REVERSE Regimen. However, the exfoliators in our REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash and brightening ingredients may fade your self-tanner more quickly requiring that the self-tanning lotion be applied more frequently.
Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE Regimen, you may begin using REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller in the evening after Steps 1 and 2 of REVERSE Regimen. After rolling, follow with REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex.
REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum is optional when using the REVERSE Regimen because REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex already contains Retinol which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Within two weeks of using REVERSE Regimen and AMP MD Derma-Roller, more than 80% of the participants saw better results in overall skin appearance, brightness, texture and firmness. REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex contains a healthy dose of Retinol, which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
If you are also concerned about the visible signs of ageing, the peptides in REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum can help. Layer it over REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex.
We recommend that you use mild cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens as you ramp up to using the REVERSE Brightening Regimen twice a day. Avoid other products containing Retinols, Alpha-hydroxy Acids such as Glycolic, or any scrubs and mechanical brushes, as these can result in irritation. The SOOTHE Regimen is a good option.
It’s not just your face that shows the effects of environmental aging, so don’t stop at your neck when applying the REVERSE Brightening Regimen. Make sure to continue onto your décolletage to help reveal brighter skin. However, be aware that the skin is more delicate in areas such as the neck and décolletage, so you may need to reduce the frequency of use.
Regardless of your skin type or concern, we strongly advise against the practice of sun tanning or using a tanning bed. Both are known to increase the risk of skin cancer and premature aging of the skin. When attempting to reduce the appearance of dull skin with the REVERSE Brightening Regimen, it is especially important to apply and reapply REVERSE Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen as directed. For streak-free, sunless color, we recommend ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan.
Vitamin C and Retinol are highly effective brightening ingredients. However, their activity makes each ingredient tricky to work with on its own, and virtually impossible to incorporate them together into the same formulation. We created REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex featuring a Vitamin C formula in one tube and a stable Retinol formula in a separate tube. Mixing these two formulations together immediately before application ensures optimal skin brightening activity. The results are well worth removing the extra cap as Retinol also helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Visible brown spots on the skin’s surface indicate more damage below. We developed REVERSE Regimen to be a full-face solution to address both the visible signs of sun damage as well as less visible signs. In addition, using skin brightening products over the entire face avoids the “halo effect,” white rings around brown spots, resulting from only applying the products on the spots that you see.
REVERSE Regimen is a brightening regimen to address the overall appearance of dullness, brown spots and discolouration. It does not fade or lighten brown spots. Nonetheless, REVERSE Regimen will help with your skin’s appearance. After using REVERSE Regimen and obtaining the desired visible results, if you are extremely diligent about using a sunscreen and limiting exposure to sun, you should be able to maintain your visible results. However, understand that a single day of unprotected sun exposure can virtually undo months of hard work. Apply sunscreen every day and reapply it every two hours when exposed to sunlight. If you begin to see dull skin developing, return to using the REVERSE Regimen.
Yes. Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE Regimen, you may begin using REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller in the evening after Steps 1 and 2 of REVERSE Regimen. After rolling, follow with Step 3 of REVERSE Regimen. REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum is optional when using REVERSE Regimen because Step 3 already contains Retinol, which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
There is no limit to how long you can use REVERSE Regimen. However, once you have addressed your concerns about the appearance of dullness and discolouration, we recommend you transition to our REDEFINE Regimen for the appearance of lines, pores and loss of firmness.
For best results use the complete REVERSE Regimen as directed. Each step of REVERSE Regimen builds upon the previous step to address the appearance of brown spots, dullness and discolouration. Used in combination, the formulations provide exfoliation, skin brightening and sun protection. Skipping any step could hinder achieving maximum results.
In a clinical study, after 8 weeks of use, the percentage of participants using REVERSE Regimen reported seeing an improvement in the appearance of *:
• 92% brightness
• 92% smoother skin texture
• 84% brown spots
• 76% even skin tone
*Results may vary depending on multiple factors: age, gender, skin type and condition, concomitant products used, health history, location, lifestyle and diet.”
REVERSE Regimen is an effective, full-face solution that tackles dullness and uneven skin tone. The Regimen exfoliates dulling dead skin cells, brightens discoloured skin and helps provide more even-looking skin tone; providing a long-term solution for a radiant, more even complexion. Please refer to the REVERSE Regimen brochure before using REVERSE Regimen for usage instructions for best results.
Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE Regimen, you may begin using REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller in the evening.
For best results, follow these steps at least three nights per week ramping up to the following use.
1. Cleanse with REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash and follow with REVERSE Intensive Brightening Toner.
2. Divide face into sections (forehead, right side, left side, chin, nose and neck) and with moderate and comfortable pressure, roll AMP MD Derma-Roller over each section four to 10 times, changing directions each time: vertically, horizontally, in a diagonal from upper left to lower right, and in a diagonal upper right to lower left.
3. After rolling, apply REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex (optional REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum) and follow with a moisturiser as needed (REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream).
REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex contains a combination of Vitamin C and Retinol formulations to enhance brightening of the skin while diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. However, if you are also concerned about the visible signs of ageing, the peptides in REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum can help. We recommend that you allow your skin to acclimate to REVERSE Regimen for four weeks before introducing REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum. Incorporate REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum after REVERSE Intensive Brightening Toner and before REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex every other evening and increase to every night as tolerated.
People who use REVERSE Regimen to address the appearance of unwanted pigmentation, help even and brighten overall look of skin tone, as well as reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, may also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum and REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream. Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE Regimen, you can introduce REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller.
