The 10-day cure for the complexion

Suzanne Duckett explains how to slip the Onolla + Elixeri Fresh Start Serum Duo into your skincare routine and see amazing results within just 10 days

Austrian physician Franz Xaver Mayr developed the Mayr Cure in the early 20th century based on the premise that good health starts in the gut. Accordingly, every few months a detox will help clear and rejuvenate the system, and bring the body back into balance. But why not do a version of this for the skin, too?

The Onolla + Elixseri Fresh Start Duo, £129, contains my favourite two Elixseri serums, Opening Act and Rescue Diver, which are just perfect for this time of year. When used together, they’re an easy way to give the skin a reset, revealing a fresh and renewed complexion that is glowing with health and vitality.

Limited Edition Fresh Start Duo 

The first Onolla collaboration carefully selected to give you the most detoxified, exfoliated, hydrated and plumped skin you’ve had for years in a matter of days – simply by slipping a product or two into your existing routine.

‘Achieve that spa glow we all long for by detoxifying, exfoliating, hydrating and plumping the skin,’ says Suzanne. 'Fresh Start Duo is ideal for all skin types, especially those with dehydrated, dull skin, looking to boost radiance.’

Integrated health is the way forward, combining ancient healing with modern medicine, and I firmly believe integrated beauty is next – using advanced technology to extract, stabilise and boost the power and potency of natural ingredients – which is why I love Elixseri. Their range of five super serums takes the skin’s wellbeing as seriously as its beauty, thanks to Elixseri’s exclusive Bio Regenerative Technology BRGT™. This creates turbo-charged actives proven to stimulate cells and reprogramme natural functions, all of which maximises skin health and metabolism, and slows down the ageing process.

OPENING ACT gently removes a layer of dead cells, creating a more even surface by making it free of cellular debris, better able to absorb other skincare ingredients. Your skin is cleaner, feels fresher, looks more even and, best of all, will make all your other skincare products work better for you.

How to use them...

Follow the night-time routine for up to 10 days, then drop down to 3 times a week (it is important not to over-exfoliate your skin). Once at this maintenance stage, on the nights you are not using Opening Act instead use Rescue Diver, either alone or followed by your night cream.

Night-time: Apply 2-3 drops of OPENING ACT, smoothing over face, neck and décolletage. A slight to intense tingle is normal. Wait 5 minutes before applying Rescue Diver or your normal night cream. Avoid the eye area and use sun protection during the day. Rescue Diver should also be smoothed over the neck and décolletage.

Day time: Apply RESCUE DIVER on its own, smoothing over face (including eyelids and eye contour), neck and décolletage. Allow to penetrate before applying an SPF (especially important after exfoliating).

TIP: We love to apply Rescue Diver to damp skin, for a real burst of morning freshness.
