Breathe Anti-ageing Facial Serum is skincare at its simplest and most effective. It’s a highly concentrated formula of 3 anti-ageing ingredients – olive squalane, pomegranate oil, frankincense – so only a tiny amount is needed. Use day and night. Smooth onto a freshly cleansed face and neck after first spritzing with Breathe Hydrating Mist. Enjoy the luxurious, soothing feel of olive squalane, and the deliciously warming scent of Frankincense. Gentle and light, this is also an excellent eye serum. For maximum anti-ageing benefits, follow with Double Double Face Cream.
Squalane is a fatty compound, which is naturally produced by the body. Our skin’s natural lubricant, sebum, contains 10-15% of squalane. It is produced in high amounts in our younger years, which keeps our skin glowing and supple. As we age, especially after we reach our 30s, we produce significantly lower levels of squalane, increasing lines and pigmentation. Olive squalane is comparable to the natural squalane we have in our own skin, so it is easily and deeply absorbed. It is a superb anti-ageing agent because it increases cell regeneration, improves the elasticity and tone of our skin, and reduces the signs of wrinkles and pigmentation. It is also anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, so is perfect not only for dry, mature skin, but also oily, acne-prone and ultra-sensitive skin types.
Due to high concentrations of punicic acid, an omega 5 fatty acid, pomegranate oil is strongly anti-inflammatory; it also has antimicrobial properties and so is excellent for sensitive and irritable skin, as well as acne-prone skin. It is ultra-hydrating, protective against sun damage, and promotes skin cell regeneration, and so it is also perfect for scarred, mature and dry skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This beautiful essential oil has well-known skin-healing properties, increasing the regeneration of our skin cells. It’s luscious scent calms the mind and reduces stress and anxiety (reducing frowning!). It improves skin tone, reducing the signs of ageing and smoothing out wrinkles.
