How to Get the Most out of Your Skin Care Routine

So many serums, so little time. The sheer number of serums, oils and treatments available can be overwhelming. Looking for optimal results but not sure where to begin? Learn how to jumpstart your results by combining the right technologies. We’ve simplified this process for you by pairing together our most synergistic serums and oils, so you can get fast results.

Find Your Power Pair for Maximum Results

Word of mouth is one of the most powerful influences when it comes to what skincare products we use. However, what works for your best friend, sister, mother or co-worker might not work for you. We all have different skin types and skin concerns that are unique to us. That’s why we’ve created a simple cheat sheet so you can find your best match.

Power Pair Cheat Sheet

You have: Discoloration and Wrinkles due to Sun Damage, Age and Stress

You need: Sun Damage Patrol

This is a great entry-level treatment duo to combat discoloration and wrinkles. Vitamin C is our top daytime treatment, and is lightweight enough to layer under your favorite moisturizer, SPF and makeup. Vitamin C protects your skin from antioxidant damage, breaks up dark spots and boosts collagen levels, all while you go about your daily routine. Night time is the best time to capitalize on your body’s own repair process, and Retinol is the most effective way to jumpstart this activity. Retinol works best while you sleep, working with your body’s natural rhythms to restore collagen and elastin for a bouncy, youthful complexion minus the wrinkles.

Advanced Clinicals Vitamin C Anti-Aging Serum, 1.75 oz

Use Vitamin C daily to target dark spots, uneven blotchy tones and expression lines.

How to use: Apply every morning to clean, dry skin. Follow with your favorite moisturizer, SPF and/or makeup.

 Advanced Clinicals Retinol Anti-Wrinkle Serum, 1.75 oz

Apply this encapsulated form of Vitamin A in the evening to target fine lines, sagging and wrinkles.

How to use: Apply to clean, dry skin before bed. Since Retinol can cause irritation and sensitivity at first, use only 1-2x weekly to start. Gradually increase frequency as tolerated.

You have: Dry, rough skin and fine lines.

­You need: Hydration Heroes

Using moisturizing humectants like Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Vitamin E is one good way to relieve dry skin, but it won’t give you complete hydration. You can apply these ingredients until you’re blue in the face, but if your skin barrier is compromised, it won’t retain the moisture. Enter peptides- the building blocks of healthy skin. Peptides are comprised of amino acids, and help trigger Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid production in your skin. Peptides help your skin create its own internal moisturizers while simultaneously strengthening the skin barrier for optimal moisture retention. As a bonus, Peptides also reduce the look of wrinkles over time. The result is soft, smooth skin free of dry, flaky patches.

Advanced Clinicals Hyaluronic Acid Instant Skin Hydrator Serum, 1.75 oz

Layer Hyaluronic Acid under your moisturizer to attract and bind 1,000x moisture. 

How to use: Apply to clean dry skin every morning. Follow with your favorite moisturizer and/or makeup.

Advanced Clinicals Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Serum, 1.75 oz

Features six powerful peptides proven to boost elasticity and moisture for visible wrinkle reduction.    

How to use: Apply to clean dry skin before bed. Follow with your favorite moisturizer or overnight treatment.

You have: Dull, dry, congested skin

You need: The Glow Getters

The head-turning “glow” is the holy grail of skin care. Skin that is dry, dehydrated or congested doesn’t glow. That’s because light doesn’t reflect the same way on dry, unhealthy skin as it does on plump, smooth, supple skin. What you need is a nourishing dose of Collagen to replenish radiance, and Turmeric to chase away redness, bumps and irritation. Together they resolve dryness, sagging and breakouts for a flawless looking complexion.

Advanced Clinicals Turmeric Facial Oil for Problem Skin

Clarifies and calms so skin looks clear and refined.

How to use: Apply every evening to clean, dry skin. Follow with Advanced Clinicals Collagen Serum.

Advanced Clinicals Instant Plumping Collagen Serum, 1.75 oz

Rev up your natural production of collagen for a plump, firm, lifted appearance.

How to use: Apply every morning and evening to clean, dry skin. If you are using with Advanced Clinicals Turmeric Face Oil, apply Collagen Serum after your face oil.


You have: Redness, Sensitivity, Blemishes

You need: Anti-Redness Rebels

Studies show that skin redness, a form of discoloration, is one of the major indicators of age. Skin redness is not just uncomfortable, it also makes you look older than your years. Redness is also famously difficult to hide with makeup, and sensitive skin is often aggravated by an overload of concealer. If redness, itching and blemishes are getting in the way of achieving your skin goals, reach for Cica and Tea Tree Oil. Cica Extract builds up your skin barrier and helps repair scarring and redness. Tea Tree Oil, a natural antiseptic, fights blemishes and bumps for a clear and smooth complexion.

Advanced Clinicals Anti-Redness & Bumps Tea Tree Facial Oil, 1.8 oz

Perfect for acne-prone skin that experiences dryness due to AHAs, BHAs, Sulfur and acne medications.

How to use: Apply every evening to clean, dry skin. Follow with Advanced Clinicals Cica Serum.

Advanced Clinicals Cica Anti-Wrinkle Serum, 1.75 oz

Use on expression lines, deep wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.                                                           

How to use: Apply every morning and evening to clean, dry skin. If you are using with Advanced Clinicals Tea Tree Face Oil, apply Cica Serum after your face oil.
