More information:

Our skin is our largest sensory organ and is deeply connected with our neurological system. As such it is affected by daily stresses that we have little control over such as polluted environment, changing weather conditions, dirt & dust and by our lifestyles over which we can have some control such as diet, working environment, central heating, fatigue and sleep patterns. When you add emotional stress to all of these factors our skin has an awful lot to contend with. Its no wonder that people feel a need to use some of natures goodness to help revitalise their skin.

Cortisol is a glucocorticoid (steroid hormone) and is produced from cholesterol in the two adrenal glands located on top of each kidney. Our bodies have a normal cortisol circadian rhythm that is vital for both the physical and psychological repair of our bodies. Cortisol is normally released in response to stress whether physical or emotional. When daily stresses disrupt our normal cortisol circadian rhythm we suffer the after effects which can age the skin and can cause a reduction in the levels of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin. This can lead to problems such as dry and dull skin, increased scarring and delay in repairs, thinning of the skin and barrier disruptions of the skin.

Tests have shown that Microalgae binds to the glucocorticoid receptor to prevent stress induced damage thus restoring the balance of the skin. Tests on people showed that in just 15 days, wrinkle depth had been reduced by 15% and skin scaliness and dryness reduced by 13%. Skin radiance was improved by 10%. It restores the skins natural circadian rhythm which improves its healing ability. It protects from modern societies top two skin lifestyle stressors of fatigue and inner stress and can create a relaxed skin appearance.

Lovely product, lovely smell and really nourishes my skin. I use 3 times a week under my night time moisturiser and I can honestly say my skin is loving it.

Delivers on Promises

This lovely nightime boost is just what my skin needs. It is easy to get jaded about skincare promises but Roots really delivers what it says it will. I have absolutely seen, with continued use, a marked improvement in my lines including a noticeable difference to a really quite deep worry line.

Does the job

I've been using the serum for around two weeks, my skin feels softer, looks more radiant and feels really nourished, I use it just 2 nights a week, it does the job!
