Unlike ordinary hand and foot treatments, the nourishing serum is contained within a dual layered glove or bootie. The inner mask contains a nourishing serum packed with pure Plant Extracts, while the outer layer remains completely dry.
The dual layered hand and foot maks provide a continuous and concentrated dose of ingredients making them more effective than creams which begin to evaporate after being applied. Not only are dual layered masks more effective but they are easier to use. A dry outer layer means you can continue with daily activities while wearing the masks.
The Skin Republic Foot Peel may only be used once every 6 weeks.
The Foot Repair and Foot Active should be suitable for diabetics. However due to the Alpha Hydroxy Acids in the Foot Peel we recommend you consult your doctor before using this product.
A serum is usually a liquid or gel containing high concentrations of skin care ingredient or actives. These actives are designed to penetrate deeper into your skin than other topical treatments, like your moisturiser. Serums target different skin concerns from wrinkles and fine lines to dryness and pimples.
In short, yes. If your skin care routine consists of 1 step or 15, serums should always be a priority. You’re also never too young to start incorporating a serum into your skin care routine. As serums contain potent concentrations of active ingredients, it’s important to know which skin care concern you are trying to target.
Serums are best applied after a toner or essence and before your moisturiser.
