Omorovicza have just launched Midnight Renewal (£140) an overnight serum that delivers an instant complexion boost: smoothness, evenness of tone and radiance. Over time, it improves skin’s ability to repair at night and combats key concerns: reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and signs of fatigue, as well as boosting elasticity and hydration. Skin’s healthy barrier function is reinforced, while collagen and elastin productions are boosted to optimal levels, resulting in firmer, smoother and softer-looking skin. This product takes retinol to the next level, by using a form of the ever-popular Vitamin A active that is 11 times more effective than classic retinol, called Retinal.   Patented, and proven to be suitable for those with sensitive skins who can’t use ordinary retinol, Retinal is converted into retinoic acid in just one step, rapidly enabling our skin’s cells to communicate more efficiently, while encouraging ageing cells to continue their renewal process and regenerate collagen and elastin. Available from omorovicza.
