Get Glowy Matte Skin
ūüĆą¬†On Model Jeremy Moineau: High Performance Serum + High Performance Tinted Moisturizer (light).
 
The Summer Glow Edit
Try these ingredients¬†in¬†your summer skincare routine and you'll see a glow with a matte finish and without being greasy! ūüĆü
 
Ascorbic Acid 
The Most Stable Form of Vitamin C
We use the most stable¬†and effective¬†form of vitamin C in the High Performance Face Cream ‚ÄĒin addition to >50 plant-derived actives for¬†luminous skin.¬†
 
Citric Acid 
For Mild Exfoliation
‚ÄúCitric acid is a relatively weak alpha hydroxy acid,‚ÄĚ says Dr. Macrene.¬†‚ÄúIt does not peel the skin unless used at higher concentrations or long exposure times. That's why Dr. Macrene formulated the¬†High Performance Cleanser with¬†citric acid and rich vitamins, it¬†resurfaces and cleanses gently without drying out the skin.¬†
 
Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide and Iron Oxides
Generally considered safe and effective (GRASE) physical sunscreens
Dr. Macrene considers mineral sunscreen as a safer option than chemical sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens such as those used in the MACRENE actives Tinted Moisturizer rely on zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and iron oxides. They work by physically deflecting UVA and UVB rays from getting to the surface of the skin. They are safer as they sit on the skin’s surface, rather than absorbing beneath it and create a matte finish in her formulations.
 
Senior Beauty Editor's Pick:
 
"Instagram Filter in A Bottle!"
 
 
Alyssa Montemurro, Senior Beauty Editor at Editorialist:
 
"While other tinted moisturizers have either left my skin too matte and cakey or too dewy, this one strikes that perfect balance. Its luxurious mineral pigments reflect and adapt to your skin tone, making it easy to layer it to your desired level of coverage without ever appearing as if you’re wearing any makeup at all. I like to think of it as an Instagram filter in a bottle, as it has a way of creating that ideal soft-focused, blurred effect that magically hides any imperfections or redness I may be experiencing while still looking and feeling like my natural skin.
