The REVERSE Lightening Regimen works to gradually reveal lighter skin with the OTC active ingredient Hydroquinone, brighten with Kojic Acid and Bearberry Extract and help revitalize skin with exfoliators such as Benzoic Acid and Salicylic Acid.

As your skin acclimates to new products, you may experience a couple of breakouts or skin dryness. If the breakout or irritation is severe, discontinue use. If the skin is normal to dry, simply layer a moisturizer such as Active Hydration Serum over the REVERSE Skin Lightening Treatment.

I’m using the REDEFINE Regimen and my skin is oily. What should I do?

Infused with proprietary RFp3 Peptide Technology, it helps shield skin against environmental aggressors, provides sun protection and contains light-deflecting minerals that immediately even skin tone.

I’m using the REDEFINE Regimen and my skin is dry. What should I do?

Skin and skincare needs change over time. Dryness could be the result of a few things such as changes in diet, poor hydration, extreme weather, your activity level or changes in your skincare routine.

To address topical dryness and flaking we recommend exfoliation: Substitute the ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste for the REDEFINE Daily Cleansing Mask two to three times a week in the morning to promote maximum gentle exfoliation with a high-glide, oil-free formula. So, on those mornings your routine will be:  ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, REDEFINE Pore Minimizing Toner and Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30.

If your skin continues to appear dry, you may need extra moisture as your skin acclimates. Here are a few suggestions for you: Consider adding the ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Serum. Apply the ACTIVE Hydration after you cleanse and tone your skin and before you apply the AM or PM cream. Hydrated skin not only looks healthier, but is also primed to more readily accept ingredients from products that are layered on top.

 

Former UNBLEMISH – I’m using the REDEFINE Regimen and my skin is breaking out. What should I do?

If you are still experiencing breakouts after six weeks, use the UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash in place of the REDEFINE Daily Cleansing Mask every morning, then follow with the REDEFINE Pore Minimizing Toner and REDEFINE Triple Defense Treatment Broad Spectrum SPF 30. For added benefits, three mornings a week use the ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste as directed.
