In modern cosmeceutical skincare, one product takes centre stage for its exceptional ability to transform your complexion: Serums. Potent formulations, packed with high concentrations of active ingredients, have become the go-to for upping the ante on skincare results.
At Aesthetics Rx, our serums tackle common skin conditions such as dehydration, hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone, sensitive skin, accelerated ageing and acne. While all these skin conditions can vary in complexity, adding a serum formulation to your beauty repertoire will assist you in improving whatever skin condition concerns you.
It might feel daunting when you first commence a comprehensive skincare routine, but once you understand the role of each serum, layering them in the correct order will become second nature in your daily routine.
Introducing our Serum Superstars!
We like to think of all of our skin serums as superstars, but unlike a walk down the red carpet, there's no need for them to jostle for attention. You can confidently choreograph the perfect layering routine where every star has its rightful place on your skin, delivering specialised active ingredients to support your unique needs.
Let's look at the Aesthetics Rx Serums, their unique potential and the ideal sequence of skin serum layering to maximise your skincare results.
Vitamin A: The Headlining Star for Skin Transformation.
Among all our superstars, our Vitamin A serums stand at the pinnacle for skin recovery, repair and rejuvenation, tackling the most challenging skin conditions.
Vitamin A supports collagen formation and preserves skin cell DNA. But UV radiation and pollutants can damage your skin's DNA, causing premature ageing, blotchy pigmentation, slow cell turnover, and acne.
This powerhouse ingredient repairs damaged skin DNA, boosts cellular turnover, and elevates overall skin health for a radiant appearance.
At Aesthetics Rx, we have several vitamin A serums to improve the health of your skin and manage concerning skin conditions; let's take a look at them.
Retinol Vitamin A Serum
Our Retinol Vitamin A Serum utilizes retinol combined with six other potent ingredients to visibly improve skin texture, stimulate cell turnover, activate collagen, and provide antioxidant protection for youthful, luminous skin.
Vitamin A Serum 1% Serum
Next in our suite of retinoids is Vitamin A Serum 1% retinol, a serum with an increased concentration of retinol to power up your efforts to reduce the visible signs of ageing. An intensive serum that reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark spots for a youthful complexion.
Skin layering tip: All of our vitamin A serums are intended for nighttime use and have an emulsion texture, making them heavier. They are the final act after other serums, such as our Vitamin B Serum, followed by your favourite moisturiser. Apply a couple of drops to your fingertips, then gently massage all over your face and neck.
Total Repair DNA Serum
Dazzling us with its superstardom, our Total Repair DNA Serum features retinaldehyde, an advanced retinoid that plays a crucial role in skin recovery, repair, and rejuvenation.
This potent formula offers essential nighttime restoration, making it the ideal choice when your skin has graduated from our other retinol serums. It's your go-to treatment to combat environmentally-induced skin conditions like accelerated ageing, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.
Nicola's Personal Recommendation:
Our brand director, Nicola, loves combining our Total Repair DNA Serum layered with our Prejuvenation DNA Oil. This combination is perfect when the skin requires intensive hydration, enhanced skin rejuvenation, and combatting dryness.
Vitamin C: The Luminous Co-Star
If you want vibrant skin that brightly radiates with the glow of skin health, vitamin C will be a mainstay in your daily routine.
Aesthetics Rx Vitamin C Serum is an essential daytime serum for its ability to protect your skin from environmental stress and can assist in remedying unwanted skin conditions.
- Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals triggered by UV radiation and pollutants.
- It's known to inhibit the enzymes that activate pigment and, in so doing, evens skin tone.
- Vitamin C is an essential nutrient within the cellular matrix to support collagen production.
Skin layering tip: After your skin is cleansed and balanced, we recommend our Vitamin C Serum as your first serum to be layered onto the skin in your daytime routine, followed by any other Aesthetics Rx serums you've been recommended. Apply a couple of drops to your fingertips, then gently massage all over your face and neck.
Vitamin B: The Supporting Act for Skin Health
Our range includes two serums with essential B vitamins that protect the skin, boost hydration, improve skin texture and tone and brighten the skin. Our Vitamin B Serums are a must-have in any effective skincare routine.
The two key vitamins from the B Group for skin nutrition:
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) has numerous benefits to the skin, from boosting the skin's immunity, ensuring a robust protective barrier to prevent moisture loss, down-regulating oil flow and slowing the occurrence of uneven skin tone, stimulating new collagen to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles and gives the skin an overall brighter complexion. Phew! What doesn't it do? You'll find niacinamide in our Vitamin B Serum and our Ultimate Serum.
- Panthenol (Vitamin B5) is an effective moisturiser of the surface layer of the skin, improving dryness and dehydration of the skin. It is also known for its soothing and healing properties.
Vitamin B Serum
Our Vitamin B Serum, which contains both niacinamide B3 and panthenol B5, makes it the perfect companion in your daily routine layered over our Vitamin C Serum to reduce the appearance of skin conditions such as dehydration, premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and skin sensitivity.
Aesthetics Rx Ultimate Serum utilises niacinamide B3, AHA and BHA's, and botanical plant extracts to refine the appearance of enlarged pores, smooth skin texture, improve lines and wrinkles, and enhance radiance and brightness.
Skin Layering tip: As a general guide, any serum with a heavier texture is the last serum in your layering routine. If you’re coupling our Vitamin B Serum with any of our Vitamin A Serums, B goes before A, followed by your favourite moisturiser.

Skin layering tip: After indulging in the revitalizing effects of the 24 hr Reset Serum, your skin will feel plump, supple, and even-toned. It's a great foundation to introduce other active ingredients tailored to your specific skin type and concerns. However, always prioritize safety! Before integrating any new product into your regimen, conduct a patch test on your wrist. Allow 24 hours to observe any reactions. Taking this cautious approach ensures that you're giving your skin the best, without any unwelcome surprises.
You're ready to go; let's do this!
Now that you know the essential role played by our skincare superstars, you're ready to create the ideal skincare routine tailored to your skin's unique needs.
Our final takeaway for a successful skin serum layering routine:
- When layering your serums, you may need to adjust the order sequence based on individual product recommendations.
- The careful layering of serums ensures the effective absorption of each product, maximising their benefits.
- When introducing new products into your routine, gradually introduce them and conduct patch tests if you have sensitive skin.
- By maintaining a consistent skincare routine, you're on the path to achieving healthier, more radiant skin that you'll love.
- Introduce vitamin A-based serums with retinol/retinal gradually. Apply 1-2 nights/week and increase usage frequency as your skin adapts. Aim for nightly application for best results.
