How to get the most from beauty Bioscience


Following the recent sell-out launch of Beauty Bioscience, where you were absolutely thrilled with the potential results of having such a product for the first time in the UK that Jamie O’Banion and I presented to you, I just wanted to reiterate that it does come with a fantastic directions booklet.

The key information here is as this is a titration application of a retinol, meaning you increase the concentration every two weeks across a six-week programme. Apply at night – it is important, as it is such a fabulously stimulating and deep-acting ingredient, not to mix it with any other anti-ageing moisturisers or chemical peels. If you need to put anything on top at night, then use a non-stimulating moisturiser such as a L’Occitaine’s Shea Butter or a hydrating moisturiser such as Decleor Hydrafloral, Judith Williams Phytomineral, Liz Earle moisturisers or 100% natural face treatment oils or night balms such as Decleor, AD Skin Synergy, and Josie Maran. The reason for this is that you do not want to double up in your skin with another retinol, peptide, glycolic, AHA or stimulating ingredient within a product. Please remember it is crucial, on a daily basis, to wear a high SPF otherwise your fresh skin cells that have been treated with this complex will be more sensitive. The best would always been Ultrasun once a day anti-ageing SPF30 or 50 day cream.

It’s normal to feel and/or see some dryness or flakes coming through on your skin. Possibly in week 3 – 4 onwards, in which case you can add an exfoliator like a scrub, to your regime – but don’t use any chemical peels.214021.v.001

For those of you that haven’t used this level of product before (which will be all of you), if you have sensitive skin, you may need to use it on alternate nights, but the booklet clearly explains this. If any of you are going on a hot holiday, during your six week course, then you cannot sunbathe on the face at all and if you do want to take sun on the face then you need to not use this product in extreme temperatures.

Apart from this, read the brochure that it comes with thoroughly and use the product religiously as it is designed to work across your skin cycle, so it needs 45 days of continual application to get the wow results that I am sure you will be excited to see.

      Hi Alison,

      I have the same question as Anna, I’m in phase 1 of the bioscience, going to spain next week for 5 days, 9was unplanned) I will use my factor 50 ultra sun, can i continue the treatment, also is it not advisable to use my pixie toners in the morning, and it says not to use anti ageing products – which i understand at night, but is it ok for following morning, as my ultra sun is also anti ageing? Many thanks
