skin advice epidermis The Epidermal Cells Form a Multilayered Waterproof Barrier of our skin. The epidermis suffers more direct, damaging encounters with the external world than any other tissue in the body. It needs help to prevent damage and help to repair Environmental and Accidental damage.

The ability of the skin to hold water is primarily due to the stratum corneum layer.  This layer is critical for maintaining Skin hydration and a healthy skin.  Lipids arranged throughout the stratum corneum are organized in a manner between the cells of the stratum corneum that form a barrier.

Vitamin C From Eating Oranges

Vitamin C From Eating Oranges, You’ll get nearly 100 milligrams of vitamin C from a medium orange weighing approximately 185 grams.

Vitamin C helps  to form collagen and elastin; which keeps your skin looking younger and more supple.

Topical vitamin C

We have a cosmeceutical Vitamin C called Fleur De Mer Vitamin C

What it contains and how it works:

Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid)

Specially formulated to deliver very high concentrations (11% and 20%) into your skin providing normal, ageing or damaged skin with …

  • Improved, revitalised and a younger looking appearance particularly when skin is sun damaged or prematurely ageing.
  • Lightening of blemishes and pigmentations
  • Reduced signs of fine lines
  • Stimulated collagen for firmer, more hydrated skin
  • Greater skin protection because of its potent anti-oxidant properties.

Fleur De Mer Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is actually coated with microscopic capsules which protect it from elements that could reduce its stability. It is therefore always fresh and also brought to you at an optimum pH with no preservatives, fragrance or colour.

This is the form of Vitamin C which is readily absorbed and utilised by the skin. Although its not an overnight miracle, results do become apparent after a week or two. After that its better looking skin all the time.

Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid)

How do you choose between the 2 serums:

If you are a first time user and want super quick results go with the 20% serum. You could stay with this or change later to the 11% for ongoing results.

If you have been using the 11% serum for some time and are happy with the results stay with this.

How to get the best results from Fleur De Mer Vitamin C Serums…

Cleanse your face thoroughly and dry. Massage a few drops of Vitamin C Serum into the areas you wish to treat once or even better twice a day. Allow to absorb in and then apply your usual skincare.

Common types of sun damage to the skin

Dry skin  Sun-exposed skin can gradually lose essential oils and moisture,  giving a dry flaky appearance.  This causes a prematurely wrinkled dehydrated appearance, even in younger people.

Sunburn   Sunburn is a skin injury that appears immediately after the skin is exposed to UV radiation. Mild sunburn causes only painful reddening of the skin, but more severe cases can produce tiny fluid-filled bumps (vesicles) or larger blisters.

Actinic keratosis — This is a tiny bump that feels like sandpaper or a small, scaly patch of sun-damaged skin that has a pink, red, yellow or brownish tint. Unlike suntan markings or sunburns, an actinic keratosis does not usually go away unless it is frozen, chemically treated or removed by a doctor. An actinic keratosis develops in areas of skin that have undergone repeated or long-term exposure to the sun’s UV light, and it is a warning sign of increased risk of skin cancer. About 10% to 15% of actinic keratoses eventually change into squamous cell cancers of the skin.

Moisturiser without Toner

Moisturiser without Toner

Moisturiser without Toner

Moisturiser without Toner Did you know, that you use 1/3 more moisturiser if you don’t use Toner?
Toner hydrates the outer layer of the skin called the Epidermis, having a hydrated epidermis allows the moisturizer to penetrate deep down into the inner layer of the skin, called the dermis.




HAMAMALAS VIRGINIANA: A powerful astringent to keep skin free from excess oil (ie. Witch hazel)
WHITE WILLOW BARK: Clears congested pores, excess oil and dead skin cells.
ALOE VERA: Gives dry skin or dehydrated skin a boost of moisture.
pH ADJUSTED PURIFIED WATER: Restores pH of the skin to its optimal level of 4.8 to 6.  Balanced pH protects skin from damage and premature aging.
CUCUMBER & NEROLI FRAGRANCE: Helps to calm skin and sebaceous glands so as to control the production of oil and shine.


Apply to face morning and night.  After application, let the skin dry, before applying your usual skincare.


A common mistake oily skin types make is in over cleansing, which strips the skin of its natural oils.  If the skin is dehydrated the skin compensates by producing more oil & more shine resulting in clogged pores and breakouts.   Dehydrated skin gives the appearance of the skin looking older; as lines and wrinkles become more noticeable.   The best and quickest fix is Sodium Hyaluronate Serum.   A water-based moisturizer with very little oil like Algologie’s Anti-Shine Moisturizer recommended and always remember that Fleur de Mer’s Tinted Sunscreens contain very little oil and leave skin with a perfectly matt finish.
