Problem: Visible pores + Beginning signs of aging
Solution: Retinol Treatment Complex
The Retinol Treatment Complex works by tightening pores and minimizing their visibility. The comprehensive blend of micro-encapsulated Retinol and Retinol-like botanicals help reduce the appearance of fine lines over time. With increased cell-turnover, your pores will begin to clear and dull skin will replenish with bright, rejuvenated skin.

Problem: Blemishes or occasion breakouts
Solution: Salicylic Treatment Complex
If you’re struggling with blemishes and want to clear your skin, the Salicylic Treatment Complex is your potent problem solver. It’s a must-have for acne prone skin to keep breakouts at bay and promote clear skin.
My tip, try pairing it with the Clarifying Detox Mask. Use this mask a few times per week all over your face or as a spot treatment as needed. The mask will exhume the dirt and bacteria that is stuck deep within your pores. After removing the mask, follow with this Treatment Complex. The combination of Salicylic Acid and Rosemary Extract will help clear your skin and control excess oil.

Problem: Dull, lackluster skin
Solution: Vitamin C Treatment Complex
The Vitamin C Treatment Complex is my favorite serum to use in the morning. It helps stimulate collagen production, which makes the skin appear more naturally radiant. The Vitamin C improves natural clarity while defending against environmental aggressors you may encounter during the day, like pollution, stress, and sun damage.
After letting it soak in for a few seconds, I top the Vitamin C with my Sheer Renewal Cream in the morning. It's the perfect way to start my day with a clean, glowy feel!

Problem: Age spots + Uneven texture
Solution: Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum
If you are wanting to reduce the appearance of spots caused by sun damage and aging, I would recommend the Mandelic Acid Radiant Serum. The alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) in this serum gently exfoliate, dissolve, and breakdown the tiny bonds between dull dead skin cells that sit on the skin’s surface. Over time, you may see a brighter and more radiant complexion.
Because the Mandelic Acid and products that contain retinol increase cellular turnover, I would not recommend using both at the same time. However, if you are seeing great result with retinol (prescription strength or my own Retinol Treatment Complex) and would like to work the Mandelic Acid into your routine, I would suggesting rotating - use the Acid Monday-Wednesday-Friday and the Retinol Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday, for example.

Problem: Dehydration + Fine lines
Solution: Age Renewal Super Serum
If you skin is prone to dehydration, and you don't want to make the problem worse with acids or retinoids, the Age Renewal Super Serum may be your perfect anti-aging serum.
This concentrated formula is infused with a potent combination of peptides, collagen boosters, amino acids, vitamins, and plant extracts. Together, they help improve skin's texture and elasticity while providing much needed hydration and radiance. Coupled with our Extreme Recovery Cream, it's a one-two punch for an effective anti-aging routine.
