Can I use Avant Guard with exfoliating products or other strong actives?
Important: Do not use Avant Guard over prescription treatments (ex: tretinoin), exfoliating products (ex: glycolic acid toner), or other actives that can be irritating on their own (ex: retinol). Avant Guard uses occlusion to aid in product absorption. Occlusion is a powerful force, and could lead to these actives irritating your skin for than normally if applied under Avant Guard. We suggest using these actives after your masking session!
Can I sleep in Avant Guard?
We recommend using Avant Guard for shorter term bursts of occlusion to help enhance product absorption and increase skin hydration. We don’t recommend you wear this mask for more than 8 hours though, some studies suggest that longer term occlusion (>8 hours) can disrupt your skin barrier, so this could be a case of “too much of a good thing.”Do your own experiments to see how long you like to wear Avant Guard for, you can try a nap if you’re curious!

How Avant Guard Works
Occlusion is the secret ingredient. Occlusive ingredients, or materials, put a protective layer over the skin that keeps moisture from evaporating out of your skin (aka Transepidermal Water Loss) Avant Guard is a silicone occlusive that effectively stops transepidermal water loss for skin that’s more plump, hydrated, and happy after use.
