The Graces Hydrating Serum

Topical hydration stimulates enzyme action in the upper layers of the skin. Once these enzymes are activated, they revitalise dull skin and promote a natural radiance.

Who is it suitable for?

The Graces Hydrating Serum revitalises dehydrated skin. It is suitable for all ages and skin types. Most women have dehydrated skin without even realising it and have set their expectations for their skin too low. This serum will show you what your skin is capable of with hydration and optimal enzyme action. Soft, radiant skin will become your ‘new normal’.

Common Signs of Dehydrated Skin:

Dull, lifeless looking skin.
Skin redness on cheeks, nose or forehead.
Tight, dry skin with a rough texture.
Pronounced fine lines and wrinkles.

The skin benefits of using The Graces Hydrating Serum

  • Hydrates the upper layers of the skin.
  • Stimulates enzyme action to revitalise lack-lustre skin.
  • Seals moisture into the skin for lasting suppleness.
  • Plumps out fine lines and softens wrinkles, naturally.
  • Promotes a natural, luminous glow.

“This hydrating serum will bring tired, thirsty skin back to life!”

Yes, this product can complement your other skincare products by providing an additional layer of skin hydration.  Apply twice-daily, underneath your prefered moisturier or facial oil.

Yes, it is. This gentle product will help to strengthen sensitive skin, particularly in the uppermost layers where protection is most needed. As the cells become hydrated they flatten out, plump up and fit neatly together, offering valuable protection to the skin cells beneath.

With twice-daily use as part of The Graces Hydrating Routine, most people will notice a visible improvement in the hydration and texture of their skin within one week.  Fine lines should plump out and skin appear more radiant.  

The Graces Hydrating Serum | Featured Plants

Mamaku Fern gel boosts cell renewal and is very hydrating for skin. It also helps to repair DNA strands. This iconic New Zealand native is internationally sought after for its skin hydrating and regenerating benefits.

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural humectant, helping our skin to attract and retain moisture. The result? Plumper, firmer looking skin. There are three different types of hyaluronic acid in The Graces Hydrating Serum! Each with a different sized molecule so as to reach and protect different levels of our skin. All three are made through microbial fermentation rather than being sourced from animals.

The first one helps restore skin barrier function and results in a smoother looking skin.

The second hyaluronin I have chosen has a very low molecular weight, enabling it to penetrate the entire upper layer of skin and bestowing moisture from the inside..

The last one has a super low molecular weight, enabling it to reach deeper down where it increases the skin’s production of type 1 pro-collagen as well as the role it naturally plays in moisture retention.

Kowhai Flower extract is used in traditional Maori herbal medicine. This golden flowered New Zealand native offers exceptional soothing, nourishing and skin conditioning properties.

Certified organic seaweed extract has clinically proven soothing, protective and antiaging properties for skin. It increases moisture retention, increases elasticity and reduces wrinkle depth and roughness.

Rosewater hydrates and revitalises skin. It’s moisturising properties help plump out fine lines.

Lavender water has a hydrating and balancing effect on the skin. It also soothes the skin, reducing redness.

Aloe Vera has a cooling and soothing effect on skin. It contains a feast of antioxidants to improve the skin’s natural firmness and boost hydration.

Green Tea has antioxidant benefits that can help delay signs of skin ageing, such as sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin K in green tea helps lighten dark circles under the eyes.

Marshmallow root is a natural skincare wonder. It contains a high percentage of mucilage, which has intensive hydrating, softening and balancing properties.

Vegetable glycerine is a plant-based humectant that draws water from the air into the skin’s outer layer, forming a protective layer to prevent moisture loss.  

Vitamin E is a rich oil with anti-ageing antioxidant properties. It helps to reduce wrinkles and promote youthful skin. 

UMF Active manuka honey draws moisture into the skin. This hydration helps to enhance the skin’s elasticity and cell regeneration.

The Graces Hydrating Serum is packaged in specially crafted MIRON Violet Glass bottles, which prolong the efficacy of the plant extracts. Miron Violet Glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of violet light, which energises rather than degrades the serum. These beautiful, deep violet bottles protect plant extracts by preserving their natural potency.

Hollie was one of the first people to try The Graces Hydrating Serum. Her skin used to be dry, bumpy, rough and flakey. Despite all of her efforts to fix it, the only improvement she could enjoy was courtesy of the Instagram beautify filter! 

Hollie was introduced to The Graces Hydrating Serum and The Graces Hydrating Ritual. She also began taking Bestow skin nutrition products. Within two months her skin was completely transformed.

“I feel like a new person. I am quite literally GLOWING! My skin looks smooth and plump. It is soft and supple to the touch. My dry spots have completely disappeared and have been replaced with beautiful, glowing skin.” ~ Hollie
