Why should I use the fruit acid serum?

Because fruit acids remove the dead skin cells from your face, which gives you a rough and a big pored appearance. The serum in combination with the Fruit Acid Wash Foam with lactic acid removes the dead skin cells and gives you your glow back. Ideally with the UV Day Shield with UVA to prevent more cell damage in your future.

Does the fruit acid serum work against big pores?

Yes, totally. Because AHA remove the dead cells on the surface of your skin which gives you the appearance of large pores. With my Fruit Acid Serum your skin becomes smoother and more even. Use it regularly with the Dr. Liv Fruit Acid Wash Foam and the UV Day Shield, of course.

No, it doesn’t. It has a neutral smell as the fruit acid is “swimming” in a hyaluronic acid.

Can a man use the fruit acid serum too?

Of course. Men usually have rougher skin and bigger pores as well as ingrown hairs. All 3 happen because of dead skin cells on the surface area. Fruit acid in the foam and in the serum removes the dead skin cells. Use a tiny bit of the serum (2-4 drops) on the entire face skipping eyes and lips. But wash your face before with our Fruit Acid Wash Foam to enhance the effect and the UV Day Shield in the morning.

Can I use the fruit acid serum while having a sensitive skin?

As long as you are not suffering from “sick” skin (itchy, red etc), not a problem. Compare it to a work-out. In the beginning your skin might react with reddish or tingling effects as you are not trained. After some days of using there will be no tingling or reddish effect, then you are trained. Start maybe with the foam first, first without leaving it on but rinsing it off immediately. As soon as you feel comfortable then you can start with the serum, maybe every 2nd night than every night. You will see, your skin becomes thicker, stable, fine pored and smoother very soon. But use UV protection every day too (UV Day Shield).

Can I use it around my lips and eyes?

Avoid upper eye lid and lips (never use a cream on the eyelids anyway).

Can I use the products while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Regardless of the brand, certain active ingredients are not recommended in pregnancy. For instance, Ingredients such as retinoids, AHA (fruit acids) or BHA (salicylic acid) should be generally avoided throughout pregnancy and while breastfeeding. In the case of Dr. Liv Skincare, we recommend skipping the Smoothing Cleanser and Overnight Smoother until after pregnancy/end of breastfeeding as they contain AHA/BHA. The Biome Barrier and the Day Shield are safe to use in pregnancy. The use of an SPF is even highly recommended in pregnancy to avoid hyperpigmentation. If in doubt, we recommend consulting your doctor regarding any concerns.
