Boosters: The Beauty Heroes We Never Knew We’d Love
The multiple-step routine is a given according to the beauty world, but ultimately what you use also comes down to efficacy. What good is layering on your skincare when it doesn’t have the chance to absorb and do its work?
This is where the shortcuts come in — to use skincare boosters as a pre-game to your regime. The way they work lie in their name: boost, or enhance the overall effectiveness of the skincare that you put on after it.
Use them right by boosting after your toner or mix it with your moisturiser to allow for deeper penetration of ingredients. Boosters are great to target specific concerns and they include: dullness, lines and ageing, as well as acnegenic skin, depending on their ingredients (clearly labelled). Here, #TeamCLEO tested some that were good to glow.
2: quench thirsty skin
Thirsty skin problems, no more! The Bybi Bakuchiol Booster has vitamin A that is 100% plant-derived, a natural option and a more gentle alternative to retinol (best believe it!). It’ll boost your skin’s collagen production, keep it soft and hydrated, and reduce inflammation. Settle any parchness — Skin Regimen 1.85 HA Booster is packed with hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin. It is on the pricier side, but we loved its silky, sensorial texture and saw results in just days.
