Most skincare products on the market today, such as serums and creams, are sold as liquids and largely water based. However, as soon as you open one of those products, they get exposed to light and air and their ingredients start losing their potency and expiring. Water creates a great environment for bacteria to grow and which is why skincare brands need to add preservatives to their products.
Wanting to avoid this, Lorde + Belle has created a few products in a powdered version. They contain no water whatsoever, and the best part is that you can use them to customize your serums and make them as concentrated as you like. Let’s take a deep look in Lorde + Belle’s Booster Solutions.
1. Wrinkle Reducing Booster is a powdered blend of skin-tightening actives that help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and overall make your skin look younger and more lifted. It is formulated with a complex of stabilized retinol and hyaluronic acid, also known as HyRetin. This agent offers great anti-aging benefits for the skin, without the irritation that usually comes with Retinol, but at the same time it hydrates the skin in multiple layers.
2. Spot Reducing Booster contains Arbutin and Licorice Root to brighten and even out skin tone, to lighten dark spots and help heal acne scars. Arbutin is a plant-derived ingredient and functions as tyrosinase inhibitor. Brown spots are formed by some skin cells called melanocytes that contain the tyrosinase enzyme. This enzyme gets activated when our skin is exposed to UV rays and Arbutin stops it. The inhibition of tyrosinase prevents hyperpigmentation spots from forming. Along with Licorice Root, they improve skin complexion, help fade acne scars and most importantly are safe even for sensitive skin types.
3. Redness Relief Booster contains a natural blend of ingredients that help relieve redness and inflammation while softening the skin and calming irritation, including one of the best-known plant-origin ingredients for anti-redness, Aesculus Chinensis. The main component of this plant, Escin, is shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, relieve swelling and improve the tension of blood vessel. The current data demonstrates that this ingredient, besides reducing irritation, it also fades redness, relieves edema and depuffs eye bags. In addition, Redness Relief Booster contains Aloe Vera, known for its hydrating and anti-inflammatory benefits and Allantoin, an underrated skincare ingredient. Allantoin is used for centuries on minor skin injuries to help them heal faster. It works as an emollient, great for dry skin, promotes wound healing, gently exfoliates dead skin cells and rejuvenates the skin.
4. Hydra Max Booster will amplify the hydrating powers of any skincare products and the amount can be adjusted to keep skin healthy and radiant despite environmental factors, stress, diet, and aging, which can impact skin texture. Hyaluronic acid used in powdered solution, has different molecular weights, delivering simultaneous multi-level hydration. Depending on your skin’s needs, you can mix 1-3 shakes of this powder, preferably with Repair Serum. It will minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while helping improve skin elasticity and texture.
