The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% HA Concentrated Combo is a skincare product specifically designed to target hyperpigmentation issues. Here’s how to use it effectively:
- Alpha Arbutin: Tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in the formation of melanin, is inhibited by this substance derived from plants. Dark patches and hyperpigmentation may look less due to this.
- Hyaluronic Acid: Acts as a humectant, drawing and retaining moisture in the skin, which can help with hydration and overall skin health.
How to Use:
- After cleansing and toning your face, apply a few drops of The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% HA Concentrated Combo to your face and neck.
- Allow the serum to fully dry before applying any other skincare products.
- Start by using the serum once a day, typically in your evening skincare routine. This enables the product to become used to your skin. If it annoys you in any way, think about lowering the frequency.
- The serum can be used alongside other skincare products such as moisturizers, sunscreens, and treatments for acne or other concerns.
- Sunscreen is crucial when using products like Alpha Arbutin, as it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Apply sunscreen every day.
- If you have any concerns or specific skin issues, consider consulting a dermatologist.
To maintain the stability of this product, it must be kept in a cold, dark location. Since alpha arbutin can be sensitive to light and water, proper storage helps maintain its effectiveness.
