This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
5 Awesome Tips For Using This Moisturizer:
- DO use a sunscreen. The Exfoliating Moisturizer has Alpha Hydroxy Acid in it, and AHAs increase sensitivity to sun. Also, you should really be doing this anyway! :) Also, don't skip this because you live in a climate where there are frequent overcast days (We are looking at you, our massive Vermont following.)
- DO use at night for best results. This allows the active ingredients to work their magic while you sleep, sinking deeply into the skin, without interference from make-up, sunscreen, or anything else you put on your face.
- DON'T freak out if it stings or tingles a bit. A little stinging is normal – AHAs are one of the most powerful ingredients you can put on your skin to help slough away damaged cells and to thicken deeper layers of the skin, leading to increased firmness. When your skin is new to AHAs, it’s totally normal for it to sting a little, and that effect should lessen over time. You can reduce the stinging now by applying the moisturizer 10 minutes after washing your face when the skin is completely dry, as wet skin is more absorbent. Also, it's totally fine to start by the applying once every other night, and working up to a nightly routine, if you find yourself particularly sensitive. One caveat here - You know your body. A little stinging is normal, but if persistent redness, bumps or welts appear, AHA might not be for you. It's rare with this product, but not totally unheard of. Use your judgment! Our hydrating moisturizer does not use AHA and would be a great substitute if this is an issue for you.
- DO feel free to use your Exfoliating Moisturizer in conjunction with a retinoid if you are using one. However, don't use them at the same time of day. Retinoids in the morning to help increase collagen production, and AHA is amazing in the evening, so that would be our suggestion. Haven't found a retinol that you LOVE? Maybe you should keep an eye out for new products coming from Mindful... ;)
- DO expect to see peak results after 8 to 12 weeks, but DON'T think that it will not continue to work. AHA exfoliation peaks at 8 to 12 weeks, so you should see great improvement over this period of time, and then Phase 2 kicks in! At that point, scientists believe that continued use will help your cells adjust the pH levels with a transforming growth factor and allow enzymes to become active deep in your skin. What's all that mean? It means your skin will continue to improve from the inside out!
