Regimen Step: Three
Use following cleansing and toning steps, when skin is primed for optimum product penetration.
Frequency: Up to twice daily - AM and/or PM. Begin usage every other day and gradually increase to daily application. (See skin type considerations below for more specifics.)
Method: Apply an even layer over the entire face (no spot treating). Allow serum to dry briefly before applying additional products or makeup to skin.
Normal or Combination Skin
Start using Exfol-A™ Forté every other night for the first week to ten days, then gradually increase to twice daily.
Sensitive Skin, Arid or Dry Winter Climate Conditions
Begin with one application of Exfol-A™ Forté every third night through the second week. Increase to every other night for a further week, and nightly thereafter. Eventually, you may be able to use the program up to twice daily.
Oily Skin or Hot Tropical Climate Conditions
Because your natural oil flow creates a film that slows the effects of the Vitamin A, the program can be stepped up more quickly. You may be able to start immediately using the serum once a day. As skin acclimates, begin applying Exfol-A™ Forté twice daily.
Minimize sun exposure while using this product and apply sunscreen daily.
