The powerful age-defying benefits of layering serums

The powerful age-defying benefits of layering serums

Everyday we can make the right choices to slow down the signs of ageing. This encompasses everything from our daily skincare, to a wholesome healthy diet and physical activity. 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 containing active and super-concentrated nutrients will deliver the ultimate boost of intensive moisture, vitamins and antioxidants to target your skin concerns and minimise the signs of ageing. Serums are also perfect for replenishing our skin’s natural oils and hydration levels that deplete with age.

Face Serums

Layering your serums for maximum benefit

Because serums deliver these essential nutrients in a highly concentrated formula, we can increase the age-defying 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! 

Picking the perfect pair to layer

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. Our two multi award-winning serums - Restore Serum & Kakadu Brightening Serum are the perfect duo! Together they deliver the ultimate boost of intensive moisture while maximising your vitamin & antioxidant levels for a healthy, youthful glow.

Retreatment Botanics Kakadu Brightening Serum

Layer #1 - Kakadu Brightening Serum

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 smoothe. 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-occuring 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 it’s lightweight consistency, this serum penetrates into the skin immediately and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on the skin. 

Retreatment Botanics Restore Serum

Layer #2 - Restore Serum

This face oil elixir is perfect for normal to dry & dehydrated skin and is amazing to apply before your makeup.

  • This serum has potent age defying ingredients, sourced from nature. 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.

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.

TIP: 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 Ultra Rich Moisturiser after the Restore Serum, 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.
