  • Niacinamide for open pores: up to 3 months 

    Niacinamide or vitamin B3, control the oil production, which increases the process of managing oily skin and reducing shine. It will reduce the visibility of open pores and enhance the texture and tone of the skin. 




  • Salicylic Acid for acne treatment: up to 4 weeks. 

    Salicylic acid is a substance known as a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that effectively clears up pores and lessens acne by deeply entering the skin. Mostly acne treatment products contain salicylic acid, dissolving sebum and debris and reducing blackheads and whiteheads, which can also cause future acne problems. This ingredient works best for oily and acne-prone skin. It is frequently present in exfoliating pads, spot treatments, cleansers, and toners. 


    However, it will take several weeks to see visible, clear, smooth skin.


  • Vitamin C for brightening: between 3 and 3 months 

    Vitamin C is the most commonly available ingredient in any kind of product like cleanser, moisturizer, SPF, toner or serum, that gives you instant brightening and glowing skin tone. It's most commonly used for reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation. 


    Jess Beauty's C Bomb Vitamin C Moisturizer boosts collagen production, improving skin firmness and elasticity. It also protects against UV damage and environmental stressors. You can see manifest results within 3 weeks. 


  • Retinol: For Anti-Aging Treatment Takes 6 weeks to 6 months 

    Retinol is a most popular ingredient used for anti-aging. It's a form of vitamin A that efficiently promotes cell rate of replacement and aids in the formation of collagen. 


    JessBeauty’s Retinol (Age Rewind) targets wrinkles, fine lines, and acne, but it takes 4-6 weeks for acne improvements and 3-6 months for wrinkle reduction due to collagen production. 


    While aging can't be reversed, consistent retinol use should significantly lessen wrinkles and fine lines.


    Our Age Rewind Retinol serum also unclogs pores, preventing acne breakouts and reducing blackheads and whiteheads. It only works well at night because it can cause sensitivity to sunlight, so if you use retinol with a combination of Jessbeauty Let it Sun SPF 50 + Sunscreen during the day, you will get excellent visible results in a few months.  



    Observing visible changes from your skincare routine relies on the potency of the ingredients or products. While some products may offer immediate effects, others may take longer to show visible improvements. 


    However, if you follow a consistent routine  you can help maintain a youthful appearance

    . Consider well-formulated JessBeauty products like retinol serums, such as Timeless Skin and Age Rewind, into your routine to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenation. Try them out to see the difference.
