What is phyto-retinol?

Our night serum contains phyto-retinol which is a natural plant-based source of retinol, proven to be just as effective. Plant-based phyto-retinol is better for those with sensitive skin. Many of you will know over the counter retinol products can be strong and some have been known to cause irritation, severe dryness, peeling and even redness of the skin. 

Other products containing ‘normal’ retinol may cause users to have mild or no symptoms. Although people who do have irritation often assume some peeling or redness could indicate the product is working. Effectively promoting your under performing skin cells to die and allow the body to start new cell growth. This boosts collagen production and reducing wrinkles development. I would prefer to achieve these results without causing my skin pain, discomfort or irritation in the process. 

Our vegan product will allow you to receive the skin benefits of retinol such as boosting collagen production, aiding in wrinkle reduction and more youthful plump looking skin, without the horrible irritations. Just another added bonus of buying a luxury, vegan and formula focused product from an indie skincare business offering you full transparency such as Ascend Elevated Skincare

If you are looking for a natural product which soothes skin, acts as an anti-inflammatory, increases skin brightness, increases skin elasticity and helps to improve skin texture all whilst boosting collagen production overnight, then our Phyto-Retinol + CBD Night Serum will make the perfect addition to your skincare routine each evening. 

Should I use face serum before or after moisturiser?

This is a very commonly asked question. In some beauty routines people will be advised to use their serum and wait 1-5 minutes before applying your moisturiser as the last step in the routine. 

This is different for us at Ascend Elevated Skincare. Our range of serums are designed to be the very last step in your skincare routine. We advise you to go through your skincare routine; cleansing, toning and moisturising. The optimum time to apply is in the evening at the end of this routine letting our Phyto Retinol + CBD Night Serum Concentrate thus allowing it to work it’s magic overnight. 

We suggest applying 3-5 drops onto your fingertips, and gently applying onto your face and neck. Begin by applying it to the neck working in a circular motion upwards. Then move onto the face again in an upwards motion. Enjoy this time gently massaging the serum into your skin. Be sure to embrace the relaxing scents of chamomile essential oil and rosehip extract. After your small pamper session, you can rest easy knowing your skin is being boosted and regenerated overnight.

How can I get the most from one night serum?

Our night serum can be used in various ways other than the last step in your daily skincare routine. 

Whilst applying the serum to your face you may have some left over residue on your hand or finger tips. This is your perfect chance to give yourself a little extra TLC. Try a small nail cuticle treatment, rubbing some oil into the cuticle/ skin aiding the health of your nails, cuticles and skin softness.

On occasion I have also used the extra oil serum left over on my hands to rub onto the ends of my washed hair. It also works a treat on my dry hair at the split ends or frizzy areas. I am careful to only use the very last residue on my hands to give my hair the boost of moisture it needs without adding too much product. 

If anyone has any other uses for our natural serum we would love to hear them. Feel free to let us know and we can share the use with our Elevated Skincare community.
