When it comes to your skin, we are confident that you have a well-oiled regimen going complete with cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen (I’m just going to ignore that murmuring about how you haven’t been following through with the full steps of it all weekend though) designed for your skin type whether it’s oily, dry or sensitive. But, let’s face it, every now and then our skin always throws us for a loop giving us a week or two where it’s super red and dry when it’s otherwise normally hydrated.
Enter the skin booster. Boosters are these magical products that we’ve seen popping up hat look kind of like a serum, but we didn’t know what to do with them… until now. These fairly thin substances (not to be confused with the equally thin essence) that come in a small bottle either with a dropper or a controlled dispenser are designed to help you target short-term skin care concerns that we occasionally face. Whether you’re dealing with a bout of irritation and redness, a bad zit or a sallow complexion because of a stressful time that’s caught up to interfere with the usually bright and milky complexion you’ve got going, boosters can help. Mix your skin-fixing booster in your moisturizer, foundation or even face mask until your complexion woes clear and you can get back to your regularly scheduled skincare programming.
Here are some of our favourite boosters to add into your rotation right now. If you’re plagued by a combination of skin concerns, scoop up a few different boosters and keep them handy on your dressing table for when you need them. You’ll rock a flawless complexion all the time with the help of these amazing boosters.
Claris is killing the booster game, offering up three skin-fixing options ($40 each) that we just can’t get enough of. Clarins Booster Detox alleviates congestion from your skin with a jolt of green coffee that also helps plump your complexion. Booster Energy revives dull skin through the power of ginseng—you’ll look like you woke up from a full nights rest even when you haven’t. Booster Detox helps reduce redness and other visible symptoms of distressed skin, while also strengthening your skin’s defenses to prevent further damage.
