Halo AHA + BHA Evening Serum
Glow in the dark and the morning after, too.
For: Dull, rough, or congested skin that could use an overnight resurface.
Even healthy skin has its off days. Incorporating a resurfacing step into your skincare routine that not only exfoliates dead skin cells but also introduces repairing and nourishing helpers is basically the HIIT of skincare. To the eye of the beholder, Halo works to address uneven tone and texture, excess sebum, fine lines, and enlarged pores. But behind the scenes, Halo also may reduce the appearance of skin cell damage for skin that not only looks renewed but behaves healthier as well.
The 11% blend of AHAs (glycolic, lactic, phytic, citric) and BHAs (salicylic acid) gently helps scoop away dead skin cells and clear pores of excess sebum.
Plant oils and humectants can buffer the potentially harsh effects of chemical exfoliants by providing nourishing moisture to your skin, so this serum remains balanced and gentle.
Antioxidants and moth bean extract, a natural retinol alternative, restore skin cells and clean up free radicals that may cause fine lines and discoloration, and help diminish the appearance of pores.
How to use
Apply a thin layer to face and neck after cleansing and toning. Follow with moisturizer. Can be used nightly, depending on your skin’s tolerance to acids, but not with other exfoliating products. Always wear SPF, especially the day after using Halo.
Warning: External use only. Avoid direct contact with eyes.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Discontinue use immediately if irritation occurs & consult a physician. Use sunscreen daily where AHA has been applied for a week afterwards. Product's contact with skin must be of limited frequency or duration.
Pore Confession: Brilliant ideas can come to you while dreaming, and so can brilliant skin.
Rethinking Skincare As Skin Situations
