The importance of using plant-based serums.

Plant-based skincare products can deliver excellent results, thanks partly to the fact that their active ingredients are found in nature.

Litchi & Titch focuses on using plant-based ingredients instead of animal or synthetic ingredients. Synthetic chemicals are commonly found in mass-produced skincare, whilst botanical skincare tends to be produced in smaller batches. Essential Oils play a vital role in the beautiful fragrances found throughout their range. The Litchi & Titch plant-based serums have nutrients that enhance the skin's natural barrier and support the skin microbiome. Not only are natural skincare products healthier for your skin, but they are also healthier for the environment. The processing methods used to extract nutrients from plants are less harmful to the environment. Furthermore, the natural ingredients found in Litchi & Titch Serums are biodegradable and come from renewable sources. It’s important to remember that a few of these precious drops go a very long way. It's essential when choosing a serum to know which skin concern you're hoping to target. Luckily Litchi & Titch has a range of serums suitable for your skin “need” or concern.

How Do I Use Face Serums In My Routine?

Litchi & titch recommends applying serums twice a day, immediately after cleansing the skin to your face and neck. Since serums are so lightweight, they're easy to layer—apply yours before any SPF or makeup. Whether you're already a superfan of serums or ready to try one for the first time, check out these options from Litchi & Titch to help you get the skin of your dreams.
