Frequently Asked Questions

What are the primary benefits of Jan Marini Luminate Face Lotion MD?
This lotion is formulated with high-strength retinol to address hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and discoloration. It helps to brighten the complexion, minimize the appearance of dark spots, and promote a more even skin tone overall.

How should Luminate Face Lotion be incorporated into my skincare routine?
After cleansing, apply your antioxidant product like C-ESTA Face Serum, then apply a small amount to clean, dry skin. Jan Marini recommends applying it in the evening, before applying other moisturizers.

Do I need to acclimate to this product?
Yes, you might. Jan Marini recommends that you start using it every other evening for the first 1-2 weeks, then slowly increase usage, as tolerated, to 1-2 times daily. If irritation occurs, decrease the frequency of application to allow the skin greater time to acclimate.

Is this serum suitable for all skin types?
Jan Marini Luminate Face Lotion is suitable for most skin types, including normal, dry, oily, and combination skin. However, individuals with particularly sensitive skin or allergies should perform a patch test before regular use.

Can Jan Marini Luminate Face Lotion be used alongside other skincare products?
Yes, it can be used in conjunction with other skincare products, including serums, moisturizers, and sunscreen. However, it’s essential to allow each product to fully absorb into the skin before applying the next layer for maximum effectiveness. Additionally, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and consult with a dermatologist if you have specific concerns about product compatibility.

What is the difference between the MD formulation and Luminate Lotion?
This Luminate MD lotion contains 0.75% retinol, The non-MD version of Luminate Lotion contains 0.3% retinol.

Jan Marini Luminate Face Lotion MD is suitable for all skin types. Use it with Luminate Mask for a weekly boost of brightness.

Apply product sparingly over entire face every other evening for the first 1-2 weeks, then slowly increase usage, as tolerated, to 1-2 times daily. If irritation occurs, decrease the frequency of application to allow the skin greater time to acclimate.

Retinol is our most powerful skin rejuvenator. It exfoliates, tightens pores, thickens the dermis (deeper layer of the skin), reduces wrinkles, and increases the ability of the skin to build and maintain higher levels of hyaluronic acid.

Retinol requires acclimation initially and can cause irritation, dryness, itchiness , peeling and overall sensitivity if not apply correctly in accordance to your skin’s sensitivity.

If you are new to retinol, you should start with a low concentration and when the skin gets acclimated then you can work your way to something of higher concentration.

Retinol Acclimation:

  1. Cleanse the skin and apply Retinol to DRY skin-Use Retinol at night only
  2. Start with 1/2 pea size of Retinol and apply on outer face first and then work inward, avoid the corners of the eyes, nose and mouth, wait few minutes and then apply moisturizer.
  3. Apply product twice a week and slowly increase to every night over a month or two as your skin get acclimated and gradually increasing the amount of product to ½ pea size to 1 pump.
  4. ALWAYS use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher during the day when using retinol . Retinol increases sun sensitivity and irritation can occur.
  5. When skin gets acclimated, AM usage can be effective, but only using it correctly can give you rejuvenating effects.
  6. The neck reacts differently to retinol compared to the face. Side effects are itchy and red pumps when scratched, peeling, dryness ,and redness. Retinol can rejuvenate the neck as well when tolerated. Be careful when starting retinol on the face to not pull it onto the neck without it being a planned event. Proceed with gentle acclimation over months and careful not to scratch, if it starts to itch. Scratching will create red pumps that take about 2 weeks to resolve.
