(re) Discover Merme Berlin and their minimal ingredients philosophy, with 100% botanical ingredients.
Merme Berlin's founder, Claire Ralston, originally from Australia, discovered ten years ago the effectiveness of non-clinical and natural beauty methods and realized that even the so-called “clean” skincare products were full of unnecessary chemicals and toxins.
Launched in 2016, Merme Berlin has grown from a singular face oil to over 12 different options for natural skincare that can be combined into an individualized treatment formula.
Her key and initial product is the cold-pressed Rosehip oil inspired by the beauty routine of Claire's grandmother, whose nickname is also the brands namesake.
Merme Berlin has created their perfect skincare routine to give us a few tips on how to use / mix & match the products.
To start with, their Nourishing Body Remedy can also be used as an oil cleanser, as step 1 of your evening routine. Made of a nourishing, cold pressed 100% almond oil, it naturally contains a blend of essential vitamins that combat dehydration and scarring but also take away any impurities accumulated during the day and any trace of make up, including the eye area.
Following by the toner of your choice, the Facial Calming Mist or Facial Antioxidant Mist : A crucial step to rebalance the pH of your skin and to allow the following product to penetrate more effectively after. They can be sprayed directly onto your skin or via a cotton pad.
Beauty tips: They can also be used as a make up setting spray.
Hydrate your skin by spraying directly on your clean face, the Facial Collagen Serum, the first Vegan collagen made. It mimics the effect of our body's natural collagen production, making your skin look firmer, fuller and smoother. It not only increases the concentration of collagen in your skin, it also helps your body to stimulate its own collagen production. It also reduces the skin redness and pigmentation, acne scars, and sun spots.
Treat your skin weekly with the Facial Brightening Vitamin C Powder. This step does not need to be applied daily but you should still follow this order in your routine when you do use it, ideally 3 times/week. It can be part of your morning or night routine, if applied in the morning, and especially during summer time, do not forget to wear your SPF at the end of your routine. The product comes with a tiny spoon, and you only need one spoon per use. You can mix it by spraying the collagen serum or the facial mist in the palm of your hands, or by mixing it direclty with the hyaluronic acid serum.
Vitamin-C is one of the most universally-loved ingredients for brightening, smoothing and preventing signs of ageing. It actively stimulates collagen production to combat fine lines and wrinkles, provides strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, and improves skin tone and texture. Vitamin-C is an active free-radical scavenger and helps to combat hyper pigmentation and environmental damage.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍊Why choose Merme?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Merme Facial Brightening Powder is pure L-Ascorbic Acid powder, which is clinically-proven to be the most effective form of Vitamin-C. When the skin isn’t distracted by irritating fillers, it can focus on repair, rejuvenation and prevention. Vitamin-C in its purest form will help to enhance penetration in the skin to achieve optimal results without irritation.⠀
Apply right after the Facial Hydration Serum, made of pure hyaluronic acid, and wait a short time until it is absorbed. Collagen + Hyaluronic Acid works even better when used together. They are a powerful duo that support one another, but individually they have different benefits to achieve a youthful skin: Collagen firms your skin while hyaluronic acid nourishes and hydrates it. Hyaluronic acid retains the water, keeping the collagen moist and elastic. They are both produced naturally in the body but decline as we age and from environmental factors. By applying both direct to our skin, we can help promote plumpness, smoothness and elasticity.
Hydrate the delicate eye area with the Advanced Eye Therapy that comes in a roll-on format, which also has a cooling effect. Made of 100% Cold Pressed Prickly Pear Seed Oil, naturally giving a potent dose of Vitamins K and E, it reduces the appearance of aging, fine lines and dark circles under the delicate eye area while improving elasticity and hydration.
Beauty tips: You can keep it in the fridge, or place it there a few minutes prior to use it, to have a de-puffing and cooling effect. Ideal too when using it with the gua sha or the de-puffing facial rollers.
Final hydrating step : Apply the facial oil of your choice (Rosehip, Jojoba, Tamanu) to lock in all the other treatments. Gently massage a few drops into your facial cream or apply more drops and use it as its own. I personally prefer to use a facial oil every night on its own, and apply a facial cream every morning. The power and benefits of these oils are endless: they not only hydrate deeply your skin, reducing fine lines, scars, dark spots, wrinkles and pigmentation but also helps regulate your sebum. Indeed, most of us can think that if we have an oily skin, we should not use an oil: It is just the opposite! It will diminish your acne and imperfections and the good part, you get to see the first results the next morning. Try them, you will love them!
