Anti-ageing Facial Serum
Good things come in small packages and our age-defying facial serum is one pocket rocket of a skincare product. This pint-sized hero is a concentrated blend of exotic, antioxidant-rich oils – including kiwi, blueberry and papaya seed oil – which are high in natural antioxidants and essential fatty acids to deeply hydrate the skin, shield it from environmental pollutants, boost collagen production and fight the signs of aging. This non-greasy formula absorbs quickly into the skin and can help minimize blemishes, tone the skin and promotes a brighter, glowing complexion.
Why use a facial serum?
Our facial serum can be used alone or applied after a moisturiser, delivering a concentrated serve of skin-loving ingredients directly to your face. Facial serums help to fight the visible signs of aging on the top layers of the skin, protecting the skin’s barrier function, improving skin tone, helping to reduce hyperpigmentation and delivering long-lasting hydration for softer skin and a youthful, glowing complexion. Particularly as the skin ages and natural oil production decreases, a facial serum is a fabulous tool for replenishing the skin, fighting the signs of aging and promoting a natural glow.
What is in our Age Defying Facial Serum?
Kiwi seed oil contains high quantities of vitamins E and C, and omega-3 fatty acids. It’s full of antioxidants, which fight the free radicals that lead to signs of premature aging (pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles). This wonder ingredient also contains natural AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids), a group of natural acids used topically to both moisturise and exfoliate the skin. AHAs are very effective at treating oily or congested skin, and tackling wrinkles and pigmentation. Because of its many benefits, kiwi seed oil is the perfect skincare ingredient for those with mature skin, dry skin or acne – basically, kiwi seed oil is great for all skin types.
Blueberry seed oil goes on light and absorbs quickly into the skin with no residual oiliness. Blueberry seed oil has a fatty acid content similar to rosehip oil and is excellent for use on sensitive and oily skin, or skin with large pores. It gives elasticity to the skin and helps slow down fine lines and other visible signs of aging. Blueberry seed oil is rich in a natural range of vitamin E isomers – essential for human health – including tocotrienols and gamma tocopheral, which have been shown to have particular antioxidant benefits for the skin.
Papaya seed oil contains papain, a natural fruit enzyme that gently removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores to improve the texture and tone of skin. Papain has antibacterial soothing properties that may be helpful for those suffering from dry skin conditions. Cosmetically, papaya seed oil brightens skin, softens hyper-pigmentation, is high in anti-aging antioxidants, and is high in vitamin C, which promotes collagen production.
Argan oil is high in vitamin E and is composed of roughly 80 per cent fatty acids. This means that argan oil absorbs easily into the skin and is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturiser and a wonderful aid in fighting the signs of premature aging. Regular use of argan oil has been proven to reduce the depth and severity of wrinkles, and fade age spots, by restoring the skin’s youthful elasticity and increasing the regenerative rate of healthy skin cells.
Olive squalene is light and easily absorbed, leaving the skin feeling really silky and smooth. It softens the skin, improves elasticity and protects against moisture loss. Olive squalene has been clinically proven to provide immediate and long-lasting hydration, locking in moisture and reducing transepidermal water loss. Olive squalene has antioxidant effects and calms atopic skin, making it an ideal solution for dry and sensitive skin.
Squalene is an emollient, a natural alternative to the mineral oils (petrochemicals) often used in other skincare products. These mineral oils act as a film on the skin’s surface and suffocate cells by not allowing the skin to breath.
How do I use it?
After cleansing and toning, apply a few drops to fingertips and gently massage into the face and neck, using upward strokes. If using with a moisturiser, apply the serum last so as not to block the hydrating properties of the moisturiser.
Dry skin types can use morning and night. For oily skin, use once daily at night.
