Glow 5/5 directions
After cleansing, toner or essences, gently press (not rub) Glow 5/5 serum into *damp* skin, or anywhere you want boosted with protection. Can be used morning and night.
*Glow 5/5 works optimally if your skin is moist before applying, absorbs better. You could even use Lucid to moisten face then apply Glow 5/5.
*It may be useful to exfoliate before applying Glow 5/5, reason: to get rid of dirt, debris and dead skin cells that will inhibit its effectiveness. A reminder, your skin could only absorb so much of any product at a time, so if your skin is maxed out on absorption, it will not absorb anymore product and that left-over serum will dry on the top layer of your skin and possibly pill. So we recommend to test what is the close-to-max your skin could absorb. We say try one or two squirts of Glow 5/5 onto finger tips, rub both finger tips then press all over face.
