How to use our Grace skincare range

Morning Routine

Step One: Cleanser

Our Daily Cleanser contains glycerine, niacinamide and squalene. Each of these ingredients has specially been included thanks to their amazing effects on the skin. Together they complement each other to produce a nourishing, age defying cleanser that leaves your skin makeup-free, and hydrated. It is a gentle gel cleanser that foams up superbly, removing makeup and impurities effortlessly. It is suitable for all skin types and you can say goodbye to tight, dried out skin along with poorly removed makeup panda eyes, and hello to a radiant, clean complexion.

How to use: Apply a small, pea sized dollop onto your fingertips, gently lather onto a wet face and rinse off thoroughly. Suitable for morning and evening use

Step Two: Collagen Serum

Our Collagen Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and is an ultra hydrating, specially formulated serum to help your skin lock in moisture while reducing the signs of fine lines and wrinkles. This serum provides instant skin radiance and rejuvenation as well as long term restorative effects. Collagen particles cannot penetrate the skin as the molecules are too large, however they are able to create an incredibly moisture-rich layer that the hyaluronic acid molecules are able to absorb moisture from to transport into the deeper layers of the dermis. This dual action results in less wrinkles and fine lines – on the skin’s surface, the outermost layer is noticeably plumper and more hydrated, while the lower layers of the skin benefit long term with increased moisture stores. If this weren’t enough, we have also incorporated rosehip oil due to its naturally high Vitamin C content, meaning it further stimulates collagen production within the skin while providing anti-ageing properties, and essential fatty acids known to support the skin and its skin barrier.

How to use it: While the skin is still damp, apply 1 pump onto fingertips and gently smooth onto face.

Step Three: Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is a phenomenal active ingredient known in the skincare industry for its antioxidant properties. It is able to stimulate skin cell renewal as well as promote collagen production within the skin. When applied topically, Vitamin C accelerates the skin turn over and promotes more plump, hydrated skin cell growth. Although it is such a powerhouse compound, it is highly unstable, meaning it is quick to oxidise. For this reason we created a Vitamin C Serum that contains Vitamin E and IntenCfy (ergothioneine & mannitol). Together these actives encourage stability while delivering a high potency, antioxidant formulation that the skin loves! It also provides amazing phyto-protection. This means that the sun’s UVA and UVB radiation will not have such detrimental effects long term, as the ingredients are able to protect the cells from this damage. If this weren’t enough, we incorporated turmeric to provide a soothing, anti-inflammatory quality to this serum, while further strengthening its antioxidant potency.

How to use: Apply 1 pump onto fingertips, gently smooth onto face before applying moisturizer

Step Four: Collagen Moisturiser

Our Collagen Moisturiser is ultra hydrating, and specifically formulated to nourish the outermost layer of the skin while improving long term skin health and appearance due to the inclusion of hyaluronic acid in the formulation.
When applied topically, collagen is able to create a moisture rich film on the surface of the skin’s epidermis. This provides instant hydration to the outermost layer of the skin and results in a visibly plumper look and more hydrated feel. The hyaluronic acid is then able to transport the retained water on the skin to the deeper skin layers, replenishing the hyaluronic acid stores while providing more moisture on a deeper level. Together these actives create an ultra nourishing formulation, shown to have both short and long term benefits to the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Further to this, we included the aromatherapy properties of neroli. This inclusion provides the moisturiser with a natural, subtle aroma while soothing the skin due to its natural anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties.

How to use: Apply a small amount to face and neck area, both morning and night after serums

Step Three: Retinol Serum

Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative that is known in the beauty industry as the ‘holy grail’ of skincare. The reason for this being that it is able to stimulate skin cell turnover while reducing collagen breakdown and prompting collagen production. As we age our collagen production naturally decreases, and the constant sun exposure and day-to-day wear and tear accelerates this breakdown. Retinol is like a skin cell-communicator that encourages growth, revealing new skin cells that are rich in collagen resulting in a smoother, firmer and tighter skin appearance.

How to use: At night, apply 1 pump onto fingertips, and gently smooth onto face
If new to retinol, limit use to two times per week. Thereafter increase use to every second night for two weeks, building up to nightly application. Always use retinol after water serums but before heavier treatments

Important to note: Do not use in conjunction with other retinoid treatments. Retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Always ensure that you make use of sun protection while incorporating retinoids into your skincare regime.
Acne prone skin may experience an increase in acne during the first few weeks of application. This is known as ‘purging’ and should clear with time. When pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any skincare products that contain retinoids.

When it comes to retinol, it is important to remember two things. Firstly, patience is key. Build up your skin tolerance slowly as it can take 3 – 6 months of consistent use before improvements are apparent. Secondly, Vitamin A (regardless of the derivative form and application) increases skin sensitivity and in particular sun sensitivity. Always use sunscreen when incorporating this product into your regime.
