Supercharge Your Skin

If overhauling your entire skin-care routine after summer is not an option then fear not we have got you covered. Let’s talk ampoules, supercharged serums, high potency actives, and peels!

Ampoules and Concentrates

The big trend this year is ampoules. If you are not already using them - you are missing a trick! Most of us are already using serums in our routine or a great moisturizer with a hit of skin-loving active ingredients. So, why complicate things by adding another mini serum to our beauty arsenal? Well, these targeted cutting-edge elixirs are not just delivering a top-up of rejuvenation or hydration that your skin needs. When compared to serum, an ampoule is an intensively-high concentration of active ingredients, focused on a specific skin concern over a week to 28 days-use. Ampoules pack a punch in helping the skin truly transform.

Typically, each ampoule is sealed in a tiny, airtight, single-use capsule and focused on the specific skin concerns. Here is a general breakdown:

Boosters: A skin booster is designed to enhance the absorption of the next step in your skincare routine, which could be a serum or moisturizer while balancing PH levels and hydrating skin with its lightweight formula.

Serum: The best way to think of a serum is that it’s a lightweight, fast-absorbing moisturizer, designed to deliver active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin. Just remember to use this one before your moisturizer but after your booster.

Face Oil: Can be used in a number of ways. I usually make this the last step in a night-time routine and apply after moisturizer.
