Despite what influencers say, finding a skincare routine that works for you is a struggle. There’s researching what products you need, finding the right ones, and even then they might not be compatible with each other.
But what if different skincare products were designed to work together from the start?
Our Skin Glow Duo is a bundle of two expertly formulated skincare solutions – Skin Glow Serum and Skin Glow Capsules. Your glow starts from within – so why not support your skin health from inside and out?
Read on to discover the benefits of each ingredient in the Skin Glow Duo and how to use it best.
The first part of our new Skin Glow Duo is the Skin Glow Capsules. These tiny capsules are packed with a unique blend of vitamins and beauty ingredients to support your skin health from within.
Skin Glow Capsules include a mix of vitamins and minerals to help your skin stay supple, healthy and bright. This expert blend includes Vitamin C, Vitamin A (in the form of retinol), SkinAx, zinc, and copper.
Vitamin C for collagen formation
Vitamin C contributes to collagen formation, which is key to youthful-looking skin.
Did you know collagen is the most abundant protein in your body?1 It helps keep our skin, hair and joints healthy by providing structure to the tissues. This makes it the perfect addition to your skincare routine, especially if you’re looking to keep your skin firm and supple.
Our collagen levels start to decline as we get older, which is part of the reason why our skin develops wrinkles and gets more fragile. Supplementing collagen with something like Skin Glow Capsules can support skin health at any age, since your ability to replenish collagen decreases about 1% each year.2
SkinAx is one of the most exciting ingredients in the skincare industry today. Its unique formula made with melon concentrate and grape seed extract has been shown to improve the appearance of skin (in a study of 35 women aged 40-70).3
Specifically, it was shown to improve the skin’s elasticity and firmness, as well as reducing redness and dark circles.
Zinc and copper
Next up is a superhero pair of minerals: zinc and copper. Zinc supports your skin because of how it protects your cells from oxidative stress (making it an antioxidant). Meanwhile, copper helps with skin pigmentation.
How to use
For the best results, we recommend taking 2 capsules daily. This can be part of your morning or night skincare routine, whatever works best for you!
Skin Glow Capsules can support skin health when taken by itself, but to really get that glow take them as part of a skincare routine that includes our Skin Glow Serum.
What Is Skin Glow Serum?
Serums are lightweight, topical skincare products that contain active ingredients to support skin health.
Our Skin Glow Serum is meant to be used after cleansing your face, but before applying a heavier moisturiser. It contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin E to keep your skin hydrated and supple all day long.
Hyaluronic acid is the key molecule involved in skin moisture4 and also helps heal any damage to the skin. Applying it to the skin as a serum means your skin stays hydrated, so it looks plumper and more radiant.
The other active ingredient in our Skin Glow Serum is Vitamin E. As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin E helps protect our cells and fight oxidative damage to the collagen in our skin and joints.5
How to use
Apply Skin Glow Serum after cleansing your face but before you apply moisturiser. This means you’ve removed any surface level dirt and oil so the serum can be absorbed into clean skin. Serum is more lightweight than moisturiser so it should go on first, otherwise the thicker layer will make it harder for the serum to get absorbed.
Just put 3-4 drops of serum on your palms, warm it up in your hands if needed, then massage evenly across the face and neck area. Unlike cleanser or exfoliator, you don’t need to rinse off serum after applying it.

Our skin’s ‘glow’ is a combination of hydration, brightness and overall health. After applying a moisturiser, cream or serum your skin may look shiny on the surface, which some people call a ‘glow’. However, a true glow goes deeper – tackling redness, dullness, dehydration and dark circles starts from within.
For example, you can take collagen to help keep your skin firm, or use serums with hyaluronic acid to keep it moisturised. Our Skin Glow Capsules contain vitamin C to support collagen formation, and our Skin Glow Serum is formulated with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.
Can I take Skin Glow Capsules every day?
It is recommended that you take 2 Skin Glow Capsules every day as part of your skincare routine. For best results combine it with the Skin Glow Serum. Do not exceed the recommended dose.
What other supplements can I take with Skin Glow Capsules?
Skin Glow Capsules can be taken alongside other vitamin, mineral or skincare supplements. They contain SkinAx, vitamin A (in the form of retinol), zinc and copper – so just be careful taking other supplements that share those ingredients. Always speak to a medical professional if you are concerned about taking any supplements.
Can I use my Skin Glow Serum every day?
Skin Glow Serum can be used as part of your daily morning or night skincare routine, ideally after cleansing and before moisturising.
What is the best age to use face serum?
As we age, our skin gets more fragile as our natural collagen production decreases. So while many people only start regularly using serums, moisturisers and skincare supplements after they start seeing their skin look older, these products can support skin health at any age.
Skin Glow Serum contains hyaluronic acid, which is key to skin moisturisation no matter how old you are.
How long should I leave serum on my face?
Serum should be massaged well into your cleansed face and neck. You leave it on to absorb into your skin rather than rinsing it off like with a cleanser or exfoliator. For best results, apply your moisturiser after your serum to lock in hydration and protect your skin.
