Skincare Products Worth Splurging On

DESTINATION: LUXURY

High-end body products and luxury skincare methods often carry a sleek, modern aesthetic. The reality is that skincare products truly worth splurging on are based on ingredients and methods used for centuries to cleanse not just the body, but the spirit.

When essential products like elixirs and serums first catch your glance, they conjure imagery of enchanted potions with highly-specific uses to heal the ill and rejuvenate. In many cultures around the world, from rural communities in western China to villages outside of Accra, recipes for elixirs and serums have been passed down from generation to generation, hand-crafted in the most artisanal of settings with ultimate healing in mind.

While some serums and elixirs are still held to have medicinal value, we now search far and wind for these liquids more for their ability to revitalize the skin. Often created with rare and potent active ingredients, elixirs and serums are the mystical skincare product that your spirit has been longing for.

The Truth About Serums
Serums are, in their essence, neither a moisturizer or face oil. However, they typically succeed in carrying the benefits of both when naturally healing your skin. Serum is the ideal high-end body product to apply immediately after cleansing, right before moisturizing. The whole point is to deliver a high dose of active ingredients straight into your pores. The smaller molecules that make up the serum are perfect for deep skin penetration, making for a phenomenal anti-aging or acne-fighting tool.

Because of the high concentration of active ingredients, serum is free of filler. The high concentration of active ingredients means a little bit of serum goes a long way. A once-a-day application should be all you need.

So is serum right for your skin? Most likely the answer is going to be yes. The COPPER+CRANE Radiating Facial Serum is a luxury skincare serum that will focus ingredients on hydrating and combatting dry skin. With an intoxicating aroma of wild botanicals and floral amber, this dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic serum will work wonders to rejuvenate your skin. Just one simple pump in the morning and evening is all it takes for well-nourished, protected skin.

Everything You Need To Know About Elixirs
Skin elixirs sound like complex, esoteric medicines formulated in the halls of a traditional apothecary’s residence. While their benefits to your skin can feel numerous, you may be amazed to discover that they’re a very simply a combination of natural oil extracts. Typically elixirs contain active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides or herbal infusions. They’re similar to facial oils in that they hydrate, nourish and heal damaged skin.

When compared to a cream or a serum, elixirs are generally much thinner. Many women choose to either apply the elixir as a base to their makeup routine, or just prior to catching some much deserved beauty sleep; the latter is ideal for waking up with fresh, dewy skin.

Choosing an elixir depends on your needs. The COPPER+CRANE Rejuvenating Facial Elixir is a luxury skincare concoction that’ll both hydrate and replenish moisture, promoting sustained skin health. Using an elegant mixture of botanical superfruit antioxidants, squalene, and hyaluronic acid, this elixir is both revitalizing and nourishing. Just like the COPPER+CRANE serum, one pump of the Rejuvenating Facial Elixir in the morning and at night is all you need to treat your skin to an intensely-replenishing experience.
