Organic vs Not-so-organic Cotton

What’s So Good About Organic Cotton
 
We’re glad you asked! We mean, what’s the deal about it right? Well.. we hope these points would help. 

Organic Cotton is safe and gentle.
Cotton is the most popular fabric all over the world.
To keep up with this crazy demand, cotton growers opt for excessive use of pesticides to make cotton grow faster.
In result, non-organic cottons tend to be full of chemicals and can cause allergic reactions to the skin. Bummer, right?


Purity is Handpicked
Do you know that the value of cotton is decided based on their fibers? Organic cotton is completely handpicked.
Ensuring that no fiber gets weakened or broken, resulting in softer and more durable products.
 
Staying Ethical 
 
While regular cotton compromises its quality due to coping with demand, organic cotton remains ethical.
These non-organic cottons are grown with the help of chemicals that harm the environment. 
The pesticides that are included affects the soil and water, damaging the natural resources in the process, as well as disturbing the ecological balance. 
 
Less Waste, More Save
Another good catch from organic cotton lies in the fact that it is lint-free.
You can depend on the strength of the cotton to keep you from using excessive products.
More for you then?

The Bigger Picture Matters
To sum up, organic cotton is softer, hypoallergenic, and lasts longer.
Moreover, if you would just look at the bigger picture, organic cotton protects the ecosystem.
The rest is your call.

THE REGIMEN

We know, we know.

Incorporating different serums at the same time can be confusing.
"Which one should I go with first?", "
So luckily, we can help you do the math.

Here's a little How-To's from us.
Basically, you can also use FSS serum as a standalone or two different serums for your AM and PM routine.
Well, for starters.
It's always wise to make sure you like each of our 3 serums before starting 'em all together. Or at least, start to do patch tests beforehand.
AM Routine
Cleanser
Toner
HA and Vitamin C serum
Moisturizer
Sunscreen
PM Routine
Cleanser
Toner
HA and Retinol
Moisturizer
Simple, but efficient. 
 
PRO TIP
Retinol 
Retinol might be irritating for some skin types, this is the common side effect, and should be normal.
If your skin is sensitive, start slow by using every other day (two days once) and increase overtime.
We recommend that you use your Retinol at night where you will get zero sunlight. 
Hyaluronic Acid
Always start with Hyaluronic Acid.
Use this as the first layer of serum.
Hyaluronic Acid is the cannot-go-wrong product.
So we suggest that you incorporate this serum in all your regimen to create a strong environment before adding other actives for your skin.
Vitamin C
For some, Vitamin C may cause sensitivity to the sun, so be sure to layer sunscreen before going out.
You can use your Vitamin C serum in both daytime and night time.
make sure to seal the bottle tightly, since Vitamin C can oxidize relatively easy.
 
 
LAST BUT NOT LEAST.
Our serums are best used in pea size per usage.
That is approximately 2-3 drops.
Why? Again, we're glad you asked.
Because this way, your skin will be able to absorb it nicely and doing this will prevent layers of serum to get stuck on the surface of the skin.
