Serums are a fantastic way to elevate your skincare routine and nourish your skin during the Summer season. Serums tend to have a high level of active ingredients that can penetrate the outer layer of skin for powerful, targeted results.
In Summer with the warmer, drier weather its easy to forget that our skin needs nourishment particularly in the form of antioxidants to help fight free radical damage from the sun (UVA and UVB light) that can cause premature ageing. Believe it or not dryness and dehydration can still be a problem in these warmer months as being outdoors and exposed to sunlight can dry out the skin.
Our award-winning Nourishing Radiance Serum is perfect for the Summer months and contains 100% plant-based ingredients that support the repair function of your skin. These include provitamin A in the form of sacha inchi, a bio-retinol that helps to restore tone and texture and vitamin c with our maracuja active to fight pigmentation and any inflammation from those rays.
It’s also full of antioxidants including organic rosehip oil that is rich in beta-carotene to brighten the skin, chia seed to soothe redness or inflammation after a day at the beach and avocado to soften the skin and keep it plump and hydrated.
Our top ways to use Nourishing Radiance Serum in the Summer for optimal results
IN THE MORNING:
The perfect natural skin primer… On freshly cleansed skin, apply 2-3 drops of the serum to your face and leave for a further two minutes to set in. Follow through with your usual spf and makeup routine for an enhanced glow through your makeup.
If you prefer a lighter skin feel in the Summer simply mix 1-2 drops of serum into your foundation or tinted moisturiser and apply to skin for a dewy glow. This is our Founder Nicolas' favourite way to use the serum in Summer and it gives a hydrated, flawless finish to your skin.
IN THE EVENING:
There is nothing we love more than our night-time skincare ritual! This is a time to wind down after a busy day, nourish our skin and restore a sense of balance as we prepare for deep, restorative sleep.
After cleansing your skin with Superfood Cleansing Balm apply 2 – 3 drops of Nourishing Radiance Serum to the chest, neck and face following the signature Nunaïa Ritual® steps that are included with your serum.
Don’t forget to breathe in the soothing, calming aroma at the start and end of applying the serum to get the full aromatherapeutic benefits of our plant actives to help you prepare for deep, restful sleep.
Nunaia’s tradition of self-care rituals was birthed over a period of ten years of exploration in the Peruvian Andes. The well-being impacts of using these techniques is quite simply phenomenal so we can't wait to hear how you enjoy your own Nunaïa skincare ritual
