Serums: Your Summer Skincare Essential

Serums: Your Summer Skincare Essential

Posted by Amy Stirling on 23rd Jul 2021

If your skin is feeling dehydrated and is asking for some extra care, adding a facial serum to your skincare routine could be just what you need. Serums are designed to nourish, hydrate and protect your skin after cleansing, and are lighter on your skin than a moisturiser, absorbing quickly and not leaving your skin feeling greasy.

As the body’s outermost barrier (and its largest organ), the skin is regularly exposed to damage-causing elements such as UV radiation, air pollution and smoke. These exposures induce the production of highly volatile molecules called free radicals, which wreak havoc in the cellular structure of the skin.

Botanicals facial oil serums are packed with antioxidants, which are the best ammunition you can provide to your skin to minimise the attack of free radicals, and they have a wide range of active ingredients designed to provide quick and visible results. Here’s what they are, and what they do:

Rosa-Renew Anti-Ageing Serum

Organic Rosehip Oil: Has powerful anti-ageing benefits, which work at cellular level to regenerate the skin and improve flexibility. Rosehip is unique among seed oils in containing natural retinol (vitamin A).

Organic Apricot Kernel Oil: High in essential fatty acids and vitamins which sooth, soften and moisturise the skin and help slow the signs of ageing. Protects against environmental damage and brings relief to dry, sensitive and prematurely ageing skin

Organic Green Tea: Contains high level of anti-oxidants proven to reduce and protect skin from free radical damage and age related fine lines and wrinkles.

Organic Carrot Oil: Rich in vitamins and minerals, with powerful anti-oxidant properties, carrot oil is excellent for ageing and sun damaged skin.

Organic Frankincense Essential Oil: One of the most powerful oils for treating ageing skin and wrinkles.

Pro Balance Radiance Serum

Organic Avocado Oil: A super-food for skin, rich in essential fatty acids. Helps to prevent and repair skin damage by promoting cell growth and increasing the amount of collagen in the skin.
