Apply 1-2 pumps onto face and neck after cleansing, toning, and exfoliating. For optimal results, use AM and PM. For daytime, always follow with a sunscreen.

Can I use the RESIST Omega+ Complex Serum if I have oily and/or sensitive skin?

Yes! Dehydration can be a concern even for those with oily skin and especially for those with combination skin. Our RESIST Omega+ Complex Serum can be extremely beneficial to help enhance and improve your complexion in many ways. It can be hydrating enough to act as a lightweight moisturizer to strengthen and defend your skin from water loss and environmental damage. This product is also excellent for those with sensitive skin as it lessens redness and reactivity.

I have multiple serum/treatment products in my routine. When would I use the RESIST Omega+ Complex Serum?

As always, you should start by cleansing, toning, and then applying your leave-on AHA or BHA exfoliant. You do not need to wait for the exfoliant to absorb, so you can apply your next product immediately. Generally, the order of application for all of the following products should be to apply them in order from the thinnest to thickest texture. During the day your sunscreen should always be the very last product you apply.

Why would I need the RESIST Omega+ Complex Serum if I use a moisturizer?

This formula is made to nourish and replenish the skin through essential fatty acids and antioxidants, and has a light, creamy milk-like consistency. While it is very hydrating, it also improves redness and reinforce skin's barrier. It is a great addition to enhance the benefits of any moisturizer.

Can the RESIST Omega+ Complex Serum be used with all the other products in my routine?

Absolutely! It layers perfectly with all our booster and treatment products so layering is not a problem.
