Whether your skin needs a hydrating or a drop of radiance, our new vegan-friendly Superfood Boosters are the perfect addition to your ELEMIS skincare routine. But, what is a booster? When should you use them? Here’s everything you need to know about our latest products. Plus, the top 5 times to reach for them!
What is a booster and how do I use it?
This new addition to the Superfood line-up is like a multi-vitamin for your skin.
Think concentrated like a serum, but with the nourishment of an oil. These boosters give you the power to customise your routine to meet your skin’s ever-changing needs.
Ideal for lacklustre complexions, the Superfood AHA Glow Booster is formulated with brightening Pumpkin and cherry extracts, both rich in AHAs and prebiotics that help to reveal a healthy-looking glow.
If you’re experiencing sensitivity, try the Superfood Cica Calm Booster. It’s formulated with Cica and Agave extracts and helps to leave the skin feeling soft and smooth.
Simply shake it up and splash 3 drops over the skin; the water-meets-oil formula is instantly absorbed.
When in my routine should I use one?
Apply it in the morning or evening after cleansing and toning, before your serum or oil . Or, whenever your skin needs an extra boost!
A trending ingredient in the beauty world right now, Cica (also known as Centella Asiatica) is a herb traditionally used to help calm and soothe the skin. If it wasn’t on your radar before, it will be now!
What are AHAs?
AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid. They’re chemical compounds that can be either naturally-occurring or synthetic (ours are derived from Pumpkin and Acerola Cherry). In low concentrations they act as chemical exfoliants, helping to gently remove dead skin cells.
Why are some ingredients fermented?
Our Superfood Boosters contain some plant actives that have been fermented. This process helps break down the compounds, allowing them to be absorbed more easily.
Can I mix and match with other products?
Yes! Our Superfood Boosters are really versatile. So, if you love the Pro-Collagen range for example, you can simply use it alongside your usual regime. Apply it first on cleansed and toned skin and follow with your favourite Pro-Collagen serum or moisturiser.
