Can I use MMSkincare if I have super sensitive skin?
Are MMSkincare products all natural? Are they safe to use if I’m pregnant?
Our formulas are mindfully formulated to be safe, skin-friendly, and effective, but they are not 100% natural. We value clean science and choose the highest quality, pure, natural, and bio-identical ingredients that work harmoniously with the skin and have proven efficacy.
We are 100% free from harmful chemicals such as parabens, phthalates, harsh preservatives, synthetic dyes or fragrances, sulfates, silicones, formaldehyde, ethanolamines, and propylene glycol.
MMSkincare does not contain any ingredients that disrupt the skin barrier (such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and retinoids), which should be avoided when you are pregnant.
Our formulas are not only safe to use during pregnancy, they can be a good, safe alternative to other acne or anti-aging products. (MMBalance contains Canadian Willow Herb instead of benzoyl peroxide, for example, and MMRevive and MMRepose use peptides in lieu of retinol to treat wrinkles.)
Regardless of your skin issue, check with your dermatologist and your OBGYN about the kinds of cosmetics and topical ingredients to use (and to steer clear of) if you’re trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and when you’re nursing.
Is the fragrance in MMSkincare natural?
It is! MMSkincare products have a super subtle scent that dissipates quickly once it’s on your skin. There are no irritating, chemical-based perfumes in our formula.
The MMSkincare fragrance blend is derived from calming essential oils of lavender, chamomile, and sandalwood, and we added geranium, which is soothing and naturally antibacterial.
MMRepose Serums and Masks have a little extra lavender in the mix for its relaxing aromatherapy benefits.
Can I layer other skincare products with my MMSkincare serum? Do I need to apply a moisturizer on top of the serum?
Since ours is an all-in-one serum + water-based moisturizer, you may not need another hydrating step.
MMSerums’ innovative gel texture hydrates and seals in moisture, so it’s one and done! In the daytime however, I advise you to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher on top.
I want you to protect your precious skin every single day, even cloudy ones! Since our serum doesn’t get tacky or pill under makeup, it acts as a beautiful primer as well.
At night, your MMSerum may definitely be all you need moisturizer-wise on your face and neck (and even the skin around your eyes!) but if your skin is extremely dry, simply put a rich, creamy moisturizer on after your serum step.
Should MMSerums be used only at night?
Ideally, our serums should be used both day and night, since applying twice a day doubles down on all the skin-healthy ingredients and benefits.
Our formula is an all-in-one serum + water-based moisturizer, so it acts as a perfect daytime hydrator and primer underneath makeup (and under sunscreen of course!) plus it works as a perfect PM moisturizer
Can I mix and match Balance, Repose and Revive serums and masks?
You can, but you’ll also get great results if you use just one. I always tell my patients to read their skin, because it fluctuates every day. That way you can troubleshoot complexion issues like a breakout, or dry skin, or redness.
Remember, your skin is an incredible, living, breathing organ, exquisitely influenced by what you eat, how much you sleep, the atmosphere around you, and what you put on top of it.
MMSkincare Dynamic Essence is in all three, but MMBalance is a great choice if you have acne-prone or red, sensitive skin.
You could use MMRevive (that contains powerful skin-healing ingredients) when your skin is feeling super-sensitive and irritable.
MMRepose is a perfect nighttime moisturizer for everybody, but you might want to use MMBalance during the day to help counter redness in your skin.
