Can I use the Lemon Brightening Overnight Serum during the day?

Lemon oil can cause heightened photo-sensitivity increasing the skin’s vulnerability to sun damage. Lemon oil is used in low dilutions (<2%) in the serum to minimise its sun sensitising effect. We advise that our clients use the serum 6 hours before being exposed to direct sunlight (and UV rays. This product is therefore best used at night.
