You CAN reverse the signs of ageing, even better, prevent them!

You probably know by now that serums are the most potent, most powerful of your home skincare products. They target specific skin issues and act quickly and deeply in the skin.

In this article, I hope to help you understand the special properties of each of our targeted serums and their effects on your skin. Serums are always used after cleansing and before oils or creams or sunscreens. Serums will with be oil-based OR water-based as each ingredient needed by your skin will either be soluble in oil OR water, not both. For this reason all skin types will need both an oil-based product to deliver oil soluble nutrients and a water-based product to supply the water based ones. All Skin Essentials by Mariga products are highly concentrated from the best natural extracts and scientific applications and one pump each is enough for face, eye contour and neck area. Use on damp skin for best results.

Lipid Repair Concentrate – oil based serum – A universal barrier repair product to strengthen the acid mantle, recover skin strength, soften, and allow all other products to work effectively. Use after water-based serum at night. Follow with Hydrating Cream (normal/oily) or Skin Comfort Cream (dry). All skin types and conditions will benefit from this super-powerful lend of natural oils, ceramics, fatty acids and anti-oxidants. A must-have.

Age Slowly Serum – water based serum– Perfect for those concerned with fighting early signs of ageing such as lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone. Vitamin A, anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid speeds up cellular renewal for clear pores and bright skin. Also fights the occurrence of breakouts. A great all-rounder for optimum skin function and appearance. Use at night after cleansing and before oils/creams. All skin types.

Hydra Collagen Serum – water based serum – This potent anti-ageing serum is for those concerned with fighting the signs of collagen loss in the skin such as thinning skin, crepey skin, laxity, dullness. With vitamin C for repair and brightening, epidermal growth factor for building density, green tea for calming and multi-anti-oxidants for anti-ageing, this super serum slows down collagen depletion in the skin to keep skin younger for longer. (Great for eye contour too!) Use either day or night after cleansing and before oils/creams.

Skin Essentials by Mariga duo for redness or rosacea prone skin.

Daily Nutrient Serum – water based serum – contains all essential building blocks for healthy skin cells. Daily nourishment plus calming ingredients for healthy skin maintenance in a younger skin or those prone to occasional redness. Fab after shaving for male skin to calm and strengthen. Use either day or night after cleansing and before oils/creams. Great starter product when paired with lipid Repair Concentrate for skin that has been neglected or over-processed and needs TLC.

Anti-Redness Concentrate – water based serum For skin with persistent redness or rosacea tendencies. This serum combines powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients with anti-oxidants for repair and growth factors for anti-ageing. Gradual, progressive redness control is achieved with consistent application and avoiding sun exposure. Use daily under SPF30.

Hyaluronic+ Moisture Boost – water based serum – A deep, hydrating boost for dehydrate and sluggish skin. May be used daily for skin that does not hold water well such as those working in a very heated or air-conditioned environment, or for a month on skin needing short-term TLC after illness, sun exposure or during change of seasons. Use under your other products for a month day or night until skin recovers. (You can then pop it in the fridge until you need it again)
