If the user has uneven skin but not fine lines, does the skin develop a resistance to any of the ingredients it doesn’t actually need? 
Clinique’s Smart Custom-Repair serum has a variety of ingredients that respond to signals in a specific manner. An analogy is the lock and key; the key is the molecule that is patterned to only recognise one lock signal. For example, UP302 is a specific molecule that will only respond to the signal for hyperpigmentation. The beauty of this specificity is that the particular ingredient will not be activated nor will it interfere with other ingredients unless a specific signal is called upon.

What products can one pair the serum with, to optimise the reduction of dark spots and uneven skin tone?
If your main concerns are dark spots and uneven skin tone then Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector works best to address these problems. If you want to repair dark spots and other types of underlying damage that you don’t see, we believe Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum is the perfect product for your skin. It should also be applied twice daily with sunscreen for best visible results.

Why does Clinique recommend using a separate moisturiser as well as the Clinique-Smart Custom Repair serum?
We strongly recommend using a treatment moisturiser along with Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum because it will help repair your moisture barrier, provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and deliver additional repair for your main skin concerns.
