Night Switch Retinol 1% - Lixir
For Collete Haydon less is often more; products with too many active ingredients confuse the skin, it works too hard, gets tired and gives up. It is better to ask the skin to do one thing at a time, but to do it well. The skin likes a change. An active ingredient used for too long saturates the skin and it no longer delivers results - Switching stimulates the skin to get better results and avoid the plateau effect.
Lixir Skin's anti-aging 'Night Switch Retinol 1%' is formulated to regulate skin's metabolism in both the top layers to refine texture, help reverse signs of sun damage and boost protein production in order to create volume and firmness.
How to use: Mix with UNIVERSAL EMULSION in the palm of your hand, use one pump if you only wish to apply to your face, eye contour and neck, two pumps to include your décolleté, three pumps to include arms, shoulders and hands. Use at night for four weeks, always allow your skin to rest for a few days, then switch to another NIGHT SWITCH, then start again with NIGHT SWITCH RETINOL.

The LixirSkin way…
Universal skin needs.- The cosmetic industry creates names for products which have the same base and do the same thing - day cream, primer, night cream, moisturiser, serum, etc. and is ever more inventive.
Lixir don't believe in having products dedicated to the face, neck or eye. There is no such thing as a product which is good for one part of your skin and not the other. A
good formula does it all.
Less is More.- Products with too many active ingredients confuse the skin, it works too hard, gets tired and gives up. It is better to ask the skin to do one thing at a time, but to do it well.
Some active ingredients are universally essential to your skin and you can never overdo it. Others are for specific skin concerns, if used for too long they saturate the skin and no longer delivers results. It is good to switch them around to keep the skin stimulated and avoid the plateau effect.
Moving on from the natural vs synthetic battle.- The natural versus synthetic battle is dated - not all chemistry is bad. There are simply good ingredients - safe, effective and formulated correctly, and there are bad ingredients - harmful or ineffective. There is a misconception that natural products should contain many bonical extracts, which actually often have little effect. Lixirskin focus on pure molecules with published clinical results.
