With 1% Retinoid, Our Latest Multitasker May Be Your Next Must-Have
Let’s be real: There are some buzzy ingredients in your beauty products that are more talk and less action (we’re looking at you, coconut oil) and every day, there seems to be a better way to maximize the results of your skincare routine. Is it just us, or do we all just dream of a multitasker that we slather on at night, and wake up to see real results?
While you spend your days hustling, your skin is going through its own hustle to renew itself. But did you know that at night, as you sleep, your skin’s renewal process goes into overdrive? You heard us right: This process speeds up to 3x faster as you snooze! But many of us aren’t maximizing this prime time between the sheets. That’s why we created Do Not Disturb Overnight Repair Concentrate.
What Is Do Not Disturb?
With a 1% retinoid, Do Not Disturb is the definition of minimum effort, maximum results. Do Not Disturb goes to work as you sleep. Retinoids are powerful ingredients that work to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture - but are usually associated with the discomfort of peeling skin or redness as your skin adapts to this potent ingredient. But that’s where Do Not Disturb is different. Do Not Disturb is enriched with plant-derived squalane and peptides to help hydrate and improve skin elasticity, and dragon's blood and azulene to help soothe and shield skin from environmental aggressors. These ingredients combine with the retinoid to create a gentle, yet effective, blend that tackle an array of skin’s problems, all while you snooze.
When and How Should I Use Do Not Disturb Overnight Repair Concentrate?
Use Do Not Disturb as part of your PM skincare routine. We always recommend layering your skincare so that the treatment (in this case, Do Not Disturb) is the first layer you apply, followed by the rest of your routine. Using this multitasker at night, followed by hydrating and using SPF during the day, insures that you are keeping your skin protected, as a retinoid can leave it photosensitive (meaning you could be exposed to the elements that are causing your skin concerns to begin with!). Apply and massage a pea-sized amount onto clean face and neck each night. If you’ve never used retinol or a retinoid before, start slow (try using every other night to start) before increasing to every night.
Who Should Use Do Not Disturb Overnight Repair Concentrate?
Starting to use a retinoid in your 20s and 30s is a great way to amp up skin’s natural renewal process. Those who suffer from acne can also benefit from retinoids since they can unclog pores and potentially reduce outbreaks by preventing dead cells from clogging pores. Those who are looking to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can benefit from retinoids as well, since it slows the breakdown of collagen and encourages cell turnover. Basically, any time is a great time to start using a retinoid in your routine!
