RADICALLY RETHINKING SKIN

HOW TO USE BIOLOGI: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO OUR REVOLUTIONARY SERUMS

Biologi serums are revolutionising the way consumers view skincare.

Challenging conventional methods, products and marketing, introducing Biologi will mean making changes to your skincare products and routine.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed at changing a routine you’ve followed for as long as you can remember, here’s our comprehensive guide on how to use our nourishing serums to achieve the best results for your skin.

Top tip: Introduce serums gradually

The Biologi range of serums is fully active, and it’s unlikely your skin will have been exposed to 100% activity before. We recommend you introduce Biologi gradually to give your skin a chance to respond to the pure plant serum.

Use Biologi every second day for the first week and measure how your skin adjusts.

To note: Skin purge

When skin cells are first exposed to active ingredients, you might experience a purging process. This is the toxins being expelled from the cells, and while you might notice spots, breakouts or a sticky texture on the skin, purging is definitely a good thing!

The skin purge can last up to four weeks or in many cases; it may not happen at all. Purging is a short-term effect of using actives to treat the skin on a cellular level.  We encourage you to persevere as once your skin is completely purged; you’ll be left with hydrated, glowing skin.

If your skin is still purging after four weeks, contact our customer service team who can discuss your skincare routine and make further recommendations.

Here’s our recommended basic skincare routine:

Morning

  • Cleanse
  • Biologi serum of choice
  • Sunscreen

Evening

  • Remove makeup (we love and recommend Face Halos or Sante by Enjo for a toxin-free face wash)
  • Cleanse
  • Biologi serum of choice (can be the same or different to the morning serum)

Once or twice a week

  • Add a gentle exfoliant into your evening routine

To address specific skin concerns, it’s essential to find the serum that works for your individual skin type. This may involve a certain amount of trial and error as you observe how your skin reacts to active ingredients.

These are our recommended serums for some of the more common skin concerns.

ACNE
Bd serum

No serum can cure acne, but you may be able to reduce redness, clear pores and reduce inflammation caused by breakouts.

Bd contains tartaric acid, which works as an enzyme exfoliant to leave skin fresh and glowing. The antioxidising properties will also reduce redness and inflammation and reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

Bk serum is single-plant extract of Kakadu plum which is rich in anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties to treat and heal inflamed skin.

Biologi guidelines

Week one: Introduce Bd serum once a day (PM).

Week two onwards: Alternate Bqk and Bd twice a day as follows:

  • Day one: Bd morning and night
  • Day two: Bqk morning and night
  • Repeat

PIGMENTATION
Bqk serum

Bqk Radiance serum is a two-step ritual designed to reduce the appearance of pigmentation and sun damage.

Radiance morning serum is single-plant ingredient extract of Kakadu plum.

Kakadu plum contains potent plant-based vitamin C as well as intense pigment inhibiting phytoactives, ellagic and gallic acid.

As well as attacking pigmentation, Kakadu plum extract also reduces the visible signs of ageing caused by sun damage and brightens the overall appearance of the skin.

Radiance evening serum is single-plant ingredient extract of quandong.

Quandong contains rutin and chlorogenic acid, which are essential nutrients to reduce redness and pigmentation. The phytonutrients also work in synergy with tryptophan and ferulic acid to prevent further pigment from forming.

Biologi guidelines 

Week one: Introduce Bf serum once per day (PM)

Week two onwards: Alternate Bqk and Bd as follows:

  • Day one: Bd morning and night
  • Day two: Bqk morning and night
  • Repeat

OILY SKIN
Bd serum

Tartaric acid naturally occurs in Davidson plum and works to break down the protein bonds that clog pores leading to oily skin. The enzyme exfoliant also balances oil production by gently cleansing excess sebum that can leave a greasy appearance.

Biologi guidelines 

Week one: Introduce Bd serum once a day (PM).

Week two onwards: Alternate Bqk and Bd twice a day as follows:

  • Day one: Bd morning and night
  • Day two: Bqk morning and night
  • Repeat

HYDRATION
Bf serum

Single plant extract of Australian finger lime, Bf serum is naturally potent in ferulic acid which hydrates the whole body and face.

Biologi guidelines

Week one: Introduce Bf serum once a day (PM)

Week two onwards: Use Bf serum twice a day

Optional: Use 100% Rosehip Oil after Biologi (wait one hour after using Biologi)

ANTI AGEING OR SUN DAMAGE
Bqk and Bk serum

Vitamin C from a natural source boosts collagen production to increase the suppleness of skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin elasticity and reduce dark circles to leave skin younger and more hydrated.

Bk serum is traditionally used as an eye serum but can also be used all over the face and body to target specific ageing spots like fine lines.

Biologi guidelines

Week one: Introduce Bqk serum once a day (PM)

Week two onwards: Alternate Bd and Bqk as follows:

  • Day one: Bd morning and night
  • Day two: Bqk morning and night

Optional: Apply Bk around the eye area (being careful not to layer serums) or all over the face

SENSITISED OR SENSITIVE SKIN
Bf serum

Repair barrier function with daily use of Bf serum, a natural source of tryptophan, the alpha-amino acid that helps strengthen protective cells.

Biologi guidelines 

Weeks one and two: Introduce Bf serum once a day (PM)

Week three onwards: Alternate Bf and Bqk as follows:

  • Day one: Bf morning and night
  • Day two: Bqk morning and night
  • Repeat

BABIES Treat cradle cap and nappy rash with Bf serum to strengthen and protect newborn skin cells without the use of synthetics.

Biologi guidelines 

Use Bf serum anywhere on the body when needed

FURTHER TIPS FOR USING BIOLOGI

  • Don’t layer serums

Putting serums on top of each other can cancel out the active ingredients rather than making them more effective. If you want to get the benefits of two serums, use one in the morning, and one in the evening.

If you use Bk eye serum, use ¼ a pump around the eye area and use the other serum on top of the face being careful not to touch the eye area.

  • Always make sure face and hands are completely dry before applying

When active ingredients come into contact with water, it can cancel out their potency making them less effective. Make sure hands and face are completely dry before applying serums. If you’ve recently cleansed, wait five to ten minutes before applying the serum.

  • Throw moisturiser away

We often get asked if you still need moisturiser, and the answer is NO. Biologi serums are multiuse, which means they address a range of skincare concerns while hydrating and balancing complexion. Using a moisturiser with Biologi will clog up pores to stop active ingredients penetrating deep within the dermal layers and may cancel out potent active ingredients. When you use Biologi, you no longer need a moisturiser in any capacity.

Introducing Biologi serums simplifies skincare to cleanse, sunscreen and Biologi. If you have specific questions on how to use Biologi, contact our customer service team today.
