Serums are a true skin care regime essential! Whether you are a woman or a man, whatever your age – you need a serum in your life!
WHEN TO USE?
We have been using serums from our early twenties. It started after late nights out with friends, or after study sessions before exams and on flights! We would use our serum at night – after perfectly cleansed skin applying it before we slept or in the day before a flight or when our skin needed a boost – applying it before our moisturizer and makeup. Its was a vitamin booster for your face! As we have gotten older and the first wrinkles appeared we use our serums more often – so from twice a month in our twenties to once or twice a week – depending on our skin. At times when your skin needs extra protection – when you are exposed to the elements, wind, dry air, lots and lots of flights and fashion weeks – then we use them daily. After that time has passed we return to our weekly use as a booster – or as your skin requires!
WHICH SERUM TO CHOOSE?
This is entirely a personal preference and everyone’s skin responds differently to different products! We love mixing anD matching and these are the serums currently in our beauty closet!

HOW TO USE?
Check the instructions on your serum! But generally, with serums less is more! You need a few drops that you distribute evenly onto your skin or with eye serums – around the orbital eye bone. They can be used as a stand alone product or under your moisturizer or night cream.
Enjoy your beautiful skin!
Lots of Love
