What skin types is this for?
This product can be used on all skin types, including acne-prone and sensitive skin. Retinol is great for treating and preventing acne that’s caused by clogged pores. This is because it promotes skin cell turnover that clears out acne on the surface level. It’s for that same reason that retinol helps to brighten dark spots and treat hyperpigmentation. It evens out your complexion over time to fade away any discoloration you may have.Additionally, we used an encapsulated version of retinol in this formula, which releases slowly over time, whereas traditional retinol releases immediately upon application. This initial surface interaction is what can cause irritation in retinol beginners, so encapsulated retinol is the perfect option for newer users or for those with sensitive skin. Pairing retinol with soothing and hydrating ingredients also make it appropriate for use on sensitive skin.
How do I use this with the Watermelon Mask?
Watermelon Glow is a gel-like treatment with clarifying AHA that brightens and exfoliates overnight to deliver post-facial like results.Avocado Melt has a denser, creamy texture to help nourish and comfort stressed, tired skin. It was formulated with PHA, which is an acid with a larger molecule structure that helps to gently retexturize even more sensitive skin types. You can use both masks depending on how your skin feels. Another option is to multi-mask with both - use Watermelon on your T-zone or wherever you have excess oil and use Avocado on your cheeks and drier parts of the face.
