As summer comes to an end, it’s time to give your skin a little extra love. While a bronzed, sun-kissed glow and summer dips in the salty ocean can look and feel wonderful, they do give rise to special needs for your skin.  

Including a targeted, brightening organic serum into your skincare regimen can help to naturally reduce the appearance of sun damage on your face. Our deep-penetrating and illuminating Serum Superieure Bio-Active Complex helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—summer’s tell-tales signs of sun exposure, at the same time as lightening dark spots and discoloration.

Serum Superieure is packed with high-performance natural botanicals. Ginkgo Biloba—has been famed for centuries for its longevity and resilience. Trees live for over 1,000 years and have continued to thrive after major extinction events. It contains abundant flavonoids such as Quercetin that are potent antioxidants which help support firmer, smoother, more supple skin and help reverse the signs of premature aging. Serum Superieure also contains Green Tea and Edelweiss Extract to help support firmer, smoother, more supple skin, with fewer lines. We recommend gently massaging it into clean dry skin, both mornings and evenings.

Exfoliating twice a week can slough away dead skin cells and help get rid of hyperpigmentation, leaving skin refined and polished. Exfoliant Supérieure is our gentle, but potent botanical peel for removing any dry, rough skin patches. For a complete facial experience, Gaelle recommends leaving Exfoliant Supérieure on the face while showering, so the beta-hydroxy acid in its Willow Bark Extract can give a gentle peel while its finely-milled French Sea Salt can penetrate deeply into the pores to give them a deep cleanse. 

For a full treatment, especially on days of exfoliation, Masque Supérieure is our rich sea mineral masque to relieve dryness and leave skin radiantly bright, smooth and silky-soft. A favorite among all our clients and an absolute must-have for keeping the summer glow going! 

Stay hydrated and cool and enjoy your self-care as we slip into fall with this wondrously nourishing skincare routine for guaranteed radiance and healthy skin!

What are Skin Serums?

Skin serums are formulated as powerful adjuncts to your regular skin care routine. They have a high concentration of active ingredients, each of which is intended to serve a particular purpose. Some serums aim to reduce breakouts, others brighten, rejuveninate, or plump and reduce fine lines.

Our deep penetrating Serum Supérieure Bio-Active Complex is designed for radiance and restoration. It illuminates, lightens dark spots, helps reduce fine lines, and protects skin from signs of premature aging.

How Do Serums Work?

Serums are designed to absorb easily so their active ingredients can readily penetrate the skin. Where they differ most is in the kinds of active ingredients they contain. Our serum is packed with high performance natural botanicals. To highlight just a handful of these natural wonders:

Rosehip seed oil evens skin tone and reduces blemishes.

Licorice root extract and a proprietary blend of six additional botanicals promote a brighter, lighter complexion.

The potent antioxidants in green tea and edelweiss extracts help preserve collagen and support firmer, smoother, more supple skin, with fewer lines.

The richly nourishing properties of apricot kernel oil help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Its abundant poly-unsaturated linoleic and oleic fatty acids plump up dry skin to prevent signs of premature aging, and give a soft feel and dewy complexion.

How To Use Serums

Use serum in the mornings and evenings, after you’ve cleansed and dried your skin.

Gently spread one or two pumps of serum onto your face, then extend this treat to your neck and decollete.

Wait a minute or two for your skin to fully absorb all the potent botanicals and follow with a top quality organic moisturizer such as our Crème Supérieure or our Ultra Sensitive Crème.

Enjoy the virtuous glow of well-loved skin!

You might first think of Gingko Biloba for its famed support of memory and mental clarity, but it is also wonderful in skincare.

Gingko contains abundant flavonoids such as quercetin that are potent antioxidants which help preserve collagen and support firmer, smoother, more supple skin, with fewer lines. They also have strong regenerative properties.

Gingko is known as the Maidenhair Tree, and it has such an ancient lineage that it has no other living relatives – it is a true survivor.

In Buddhist wisdom, Gingko is viewed as a sacred symbol of longevity and of the unity of body and mind. Monks in China tend individual trees in temple gardens which are believed to be 1,500 years old.

We use Gingko extract in our Serum Supérieure Bio-Active Complex, along with a host of other high efficacy botanicals including:

Rosehip seed oil to even skin tone and reduces blemishes

Licorice root extract to promote a brighter, lighter complexion

Green tea and edelweiss, packed with protective antioxidants

Apricot kernel oil to help reduce the appearance of fine lines
