A question about Renova.

How long should I wait after applying Renova before applying my nightly mosturizer?

For at least 15 years, I’ve had my patients wash their faces, apply the moisturizer first, wait 5-10 minutes and THEN apply the Renova.  It works just as well that way and causes much less irritation.  I do this too.  You might try it but if you want to put the Renova on first just wait a few minutes and then apply the moistuizer.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
