Adding Serums & Oils to your Skincare Routine
A powerful serum or nourishing facial oil can give your skin a radiant, healthy boost. If you’ve ever considered using a serum or oil and wondered what one you should be using, read on to find out!
Why are serums so powerful?
A skin serum is a concentrated blend of active ingredients formulated to penetrate deeply into your skin to achieve results. Serums contain a high percentage of active ingredients and a little goes a long way. We offer two certified natural serums, which are each formulated to target specific skin concerns.
Active Brightening Serum
A powerful blend of world renowned botanicals, this silky-smooth serum works to minimise the appearance of uneven skin tone and pigmentation, while nurturing and protecting skin. This delicious melon scented serum is formulated with a concentrated blend of tropical Pracaxi Fruit Seed Oil, Atlantic Kelp and Hyaluronic Acid. Suitable for all skin types, it’s recommended for those with uneven skin tones and pigmentation.
Firming Flax Serum
Designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Firming Flax Serum contains Harakeke Flax Gel, a mild astringent which causes pores to contract and prevents skin from moisture loss. This is blended with Active Manuka Honey which nourishes and aids in skin healing, and organic Rosehip Oil to rejuvenate the skin. It also contains vitamin C rich Grapefruit Extract and Vitamin E, both powerful antioxidants which help to protect your skin from free radical damage. Suitable for all skin types, it is recommended to target fine lines and wrinkles.
Facial Oils are ideal for providing a boost of nourishment, especially in dry or very cold climates which can be harsh on your complexion. Sometimes just a moisturiser isn’t enough and your skin will crave the additional emollient boost. Facial Oils can be formulated for a wide variety of skin types, and there will be one out there that is perfect for you. At Living Nature, we offer two precious facial oils which are formulated to suit all skin types and offer a wide range of skin benefits.
Ultimate Day Oil
An ultra-fine facial oil which works to rejuvenate, nourish, and protect skin against free radical damage and feed skin throughout the day. The fragrant blend includes Rosehip Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Jojoba Oil which contain essential skin nutrients. It leaves no oily residue, making it perfect for your morning skincare routine (you can wear it under your makeup). Suitable for all skin types, it’s perfect for when your skin needs a boost of additional nourishment and moisture.
Radiance Night Oil
An advanced antioxidant-rich night treatment that improves the appearance of your skin while you sleep. Clinically proven to boost your skins natural hyaluronic acid levels by 43% in 72 hours*, Radiance Night Oil boosts skins moisture levels while assisting to repair and rejuvenate for firmer, younger looking skin.
While you sleep, your skin switches from recovery mode to repair and regeneration mode; this is the optimal time to apply topical products which aid in skin cell regeneration, and Radiance Night Oil boosts this renewal process. Perfect for dry or mature skin, Radiance Night Oil can be used by all skin types and is perfect for a luxurious pick-me-up.
How to incorporate Serums and Oils into your daily skincare routine
Gently cleanse your skin and follow with your Living Nature Toning Gel. Allow the Toning Gel to absorb into your skin and then gently apply Serum. Allow approximately 30 seconds for the Serum to penetrate into the skin and then place 2 drops of Facial Oil onto the finger tips (gently spread the oil over all the finger tips) and ‘push’ the oil into the skin until evenly spread. If not using a Facial Oil follow Serum with your Living Nature moisturiser. View our full range of Serums & Oils here.
