Everything You Need To Know About Serums

Everything You Need To Know About Serums

30th July 2020
By: Nikki Retreatment Botanics

Every day we can make the right choices to slow down the signs of ageing… This encompasses everything from a wholesome healthy diet and physical activity to what skincare products we use. Minimising the appearance of ageing skin is as simple as equipping yourself with active, age-defying skincare that targets your skin concerns… and knowing the little secrets along the way!

Why should we use serums?

Serums are essential for providing highly concentrated nutrients to the skin. They really are the powerhouse product of your skincare ritual. High-performance serums are the crucial step in your regime to deliver and replenish active nutrients that naturally deplete in our skin over time.

The secret to ageless skin

Serums containing active and super-concentrated nutrients will deliver the ultimate boost of intensive moisture, vitamins and antioxidants to minimise the signs of ageing. Serums deliver these essential nutrients in a highly concentrated formula, so we can increase the anti-ageing benefits by applying two different types of serums that each have their own unique active ingredients. 

Layering serums will deliver double the nutrients to target a greater range of skin concerns, and your skin will benefit from double the results! 

The ultimate serum duo

When layering serums, it’s important to choose the right pair. Ideally, each serum should have it’s unique ingredients and nutrients that differ from the other. We’ve got the perfect serum duo that will deliver the ultimate boost of intensive moisture while maximising your vitamin & antioxidant levels for a healthy, youthful glow:

Layer #1 - Retreatment Botanics Kakadu Brightening Serum

WINNER: Best Brightening Serum in the 2020 Beauty Shortlist Awards.

A lightweight, oil-free serum that’s perfect for all skin types.

  • This serum delivers an intensive boost of natural and active Vitamin C to the skin and as we know, Vitamin C is amazing for targeting hyperpigmentation and sunspots, leaving your skin bright and smooth. It also soothes redness and irritation.

  • To work synergistically with the Vitamin C, this serum is also formulated with Hyaluronic Acid which provides instant hydration. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally-occurring substance that plays a crucial role in skin hydration, however, the levels in your skin deplete with age so it’s important to supplement it through your skincare.

  • Due to its lightweight consistency, this serum penetrates into the skin immediately and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on the skin.

Layer #2 - Retreatment Botanics Restore Serum

WINNER: Best Serum in the 2020 Beauty Shortlist Awards.

This face oil elixir is a personal favourite of Julie’s and it’s perfect for normal to dry & dehydrated skin.

  • This serum has potent age-defying ingredients, sourced from nature like all of Retreatment Botanics products. It’s rich in antioxidants and pro-vitamin A (beta-carotene), C, E and also Omega 3 & 9 essential fatty acids.

  • The multitude of active and potent ingredients minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while leaving your skin firm, hydrated and smooth.

  • Another great benefit of this serum, which is sometimes hard to find with oil-based serums is that it sinks right into the skin without leaving any greasy residue! Your skin is left with a beautiful luminous glow. 

Once you’ve applied the Kakadu Brightening Serum, give it a couple of minutes to deeply penetrate before layering the Restore Serum on top.

Really want to maximise the benefits of these two serums? Apply them morning AND evening, and don’t forget to seal your skin with a moisturiser after! We love applying the nourishing Retreatment Botanics Ultra Rich Moisturiser afterwards, to lock in all the moisture and goodness, and to protect our skin from the environmental pollution and weather that our skin endures each day. 

Your skin will soak up both serums perfectly - this really is the perfect duo for normal to dry, or combination skin! The age-defying combination of intensive nutrients will leave your skin more firm, hydrated and plump to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Note: If you have acne-prone skin we suggest using the Kakadu Brightening Serum alone.

If you prefer a lighter day moisturiser to lock in your serums, we suggest Retreatment Botanics Light Hydrating Moisturiser.
