The Art of Layering Skincare

Posted on

Cleansers, moisturisers, serums and oils each have a specific purpose to advance the skin’s appearance. Therefore, if you wish to ensure your skin has the capabilities to reach its full potential, layering products is obligatory.

Step 1: Cleanse

Your skin amasses a great deal of dust, dead skin cells, perspiration, pollution and other particles. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to ensure this debris is removed from the skin before applying any other products.

Effective cleansing purifies the skin and provides the perfect pH balance for the skin to receive intelligent skincare ingredients. Ecdysis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanse provides the dual-action of sweeping away make-up and all other impurities, while also gently exfoliating the skin to deeply cleanse the pores and remove dead skin cells. Containing enzymes derived from the papaya fruit and vegan AHAs and hyaluronic acid, this cleanser is unparalleled in its ability to deeply hydrate, cleanse and rejuvenate the skin.

Step 2: Serum

Serums are lightweight concentrations of active ingredients, designed to assist with specific skin issue and provide powerful hydration. A serum’s smaller molecular size enables deep skin absorption to encourage a specific response such as brightening, collagen production, cell renewal.

Daytime serums should be lightweight, hydrating and provide the skin with essential antioxidants and botanicals for skin protection. With the summer months approaching, restoring the skins antioxidant reservoir will increase your skins ability to prevent damage.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that possesses the ability to assist with filtering out harmful UV rays, preventing them from reaching the skin’s sun-layers where they cause significant damage to the skin’s DNA. Vitamin C is also a super-star ingredient in relation to boosting collagen and elastin levels and increasing skin brightening. For glowing skin, try adding Luminosity Vitamin C Serum to your routine.

Night-time serums repair and restore the skin. Nocturnal skin cycles focus on DNA repair and cellular turnover. Elemental A + C + E Serum contains a high percentage of retinol to increase collagen production and skin desquamation (skin slough off) encouraging faster cellular turnover to promote a dewy smooth and wrinkle-free appearance.

Step 3: Moisturise

Moisturisers are necessary for boosting hydration levels and delivering long-lasting moisture to the skin. Applied after serums, they will ensure active ingredients are locked-in and delivered effectively.

Metamorphis Multi-Vitamin Cream transcends beyond hydration with the addition of powerful antioxidants to protect the skin from free radicals and reinforces its natural defense system against stress and fatigue. The advanced formulation stimulates collagen production and promotes cell renewal for a rejuvenated complexion.

Facial oils are highly concentrated complexes of essential fatty acids, nutrients and antioxidants. They are beneficial for keeping essential hydration locked in and will instantaneously smooth skin. Try adding a few concentrated drops of Green Tea + Ginseng Facial Oil to your serum or moisturiser.

Through layering multiple products in your skincare routine you can experience the benefits of a variety of intelligent skincare ingredients, creating a perfected and luminous skin surface.
