KYPRIS Beauty Moonlight Catalyst: A Natural Alternative To Retinol Treatment

KYPRIS Beauty Moonlight Catalyst: A Natural Alternative To Retinol Treatment

We've all heard of retinol, what is it and what does it do for your skin? Basically, Retinol is a chemical derived from Vitamin A that speeds up cell turnover overnight, resulting in softer, brighter skin with less acne and extreme healing properties. At first, retinol was an amazing leap in skincare, but experts soon found out it had some major downfalls. Not only do doctors advise against retinol use when pregnant, they also advise to not use too often in general as over-use can cause skin to be stripped of natural oils and dry out, along with irritation and severe inflammation to skin. 

That's when KYPRIS beauty stepped in to create their Moonlight Catalyst Refine and Renew oil that recreates the healthy effects of Retinol without actually using Retinol. Genius. 

By using Pumpkin enzymes to recreate the cell-renewing effect retinol has on the skin, KYPRIS Beauty created a skin softening and plumping serum that is all natural, and calming on the skin instead of irritating. Other ingredients include peach, rosehip, and plum, to plump and calm skin while returning it to baby softness overnight.

Not only does the Moonlight Catalyst oil refine your skin's texture, it's also amazing for acne sufferers because of the sped up cell turnover. Bacteria on the skin has a shorter lifespan, therefore helping to clear up acne, even cystic (YES!) and reduce hyperpigmentation and scarring. 

It also has anti-aging properties to help reverse wrinkles and fine lines by plumping skin to reveal soft, supple skin around your mouth and eyes.

Just remember, Moonlight Catalyst is still an exfoliating acid treatment, so only use at nighttime once the sun has gone down and cleanse your face before going out in the morning.
