When it comes to skincare, we all know the basics: cleansing, moisturizing and protecting our skin from the sun.
But to really get the most out of your routine, a serum is the answer.
As a general rule, serum is meant to be used after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Over the past decade, serums have become somewhat iconic, and for good reason.
Serums are impressive products when it comes to intense skin nutrition. A little goes a long way and they are easily worked into existing skincare routines.
With a variety of serums to tackle different skin needs, these little bottles of goodness are hard to live without.
All of our Litchi & Titch serums are 100% plant, seed and flower oil-based. Each ingredient has been meticulously chosen for its unique benefit/s and nutrient structure. No fillers, no chemicals, no substitutes and no toxic alternatives.
In addition to these gorgeous blends of plant oils, we have included a 'secret weapon’ into the formulations of all our Serums. Squalane.
Our bodies produce Squalene, a compound made naturally by our sebaceous glands. However, as we age the production of Squalene decreases, causing drier, more dehydrated and ageing skin.
Over the past decade or so, naturally derived Squalane – the hydrogenated version of Squalene, has become a welcome addition to skincare products globally. (The Squalane we use comes from Sugar Cane).
Apart from binding moisture cells to your skin cells, Squalane acts as a transport vehicle, carrying plant oils deep into the dermis. This also means that your serum does not ‘sit’ on top of your skin, but is absorbed deeper into the epidermis.
Squalane sits neatly between skin cells, leaving your skin noticeably smooth and silky to the touch.
When it comes to choosing a serum, certain formulas are universally beneficial, while others are intended for specific skin concerns.
Here's what you need to know about each type:
