Okay, so you’ve now read all about Mend Hyaluronic Acid Serum and decided that you definitely need it in your life.

Great choice. You will not (ever) be disappointed, we promise.

But what exactly do you do with it and how does it fit in your routine? If it hydrates the skin, isn’t that what a moisturiser does? In that case, is it a moisturiser? But if it's not a moisturiser, do I need one of those as well?

Your Daily Skincare Routine

First of all, serums and moisturisers are not the same. A bullet-proof anti-ageing skincare system should, therefore, include both.

The Mend collection consists of four anti-ageing skincare gems, which should be applied in the following order:

1. Mend Vitamin C Serum [Serum]
2. Mend Hyaluronic Acid Serum [Serum]
3. Mend Bright Eye Gel [Moisturiser]
4. Mend Retinol Cream [Moisturiser]

Our skincare routine has been designed for men and women in a hurry, with minimal time, fuss or effort required on your part. Keeping things really simple, you should apply each product in order of consistency, from thinnest to thickest.

Start by washing your hands first, then wash your face with a gentle PH balanced soap or cleanser. Your face should now be clean, dry and ready to receive its daily dose of goodness.

Vitamin C Serum And Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Serums are the ‘do-ers’ of our skincare collection.

Mend Vitamin C Serum is designed to help brighten your skin and reduce the appearance of dark age spots, scars and hyperpigmentation. It also protects from UV-rays, free radical damage and calms inflammation, spots and acne.

Mend Hyaluronic Acid Serum acts like a sponge by attracting moisture to boost hydration on the surface of your skin. This results in less wrinkles and a more hydrated, healthy-looking skin tone.

Layering serums on top of each other is absolutely fine, provided you use the most active serum first. Start by adding a few drops of Mend Vitamin C Serum to the palm of your hand and apply to your face and neck as required.

Once fully absorbed, follow with Mend Hyaluronic Acid Serum for hydration, then Mend Bright Eye Gel to smooth dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.

Finish with Mend Retinol Cream (at night time only) to tune up your complexion so it’s functioning at its best.

Moisturisers and SPF

Moisturisers (Mend Bright Eye Gel and Mend Retinol Cream) act as a water-resistant barrier to help to lock in the benefits of each serum and hold them in the skin.

Moisturisers are heavier than serums in their formulation, and do not penetrate skin as deeply as their serum counterparts. They also contain ingredients that act as a ‘lock’ to help form a protective barrier. Once your moisturiser has settled, then it’s time for sunscreen (obviously, you don’t need this step at night).

We can’t reiterate how important a good SPF is. If you are remotely concerned about the signs of ageing, SPF, along with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol are crucial in your quest for healthy, younger-looking skin.
