These supercharged formulas are designed to enhance the effectiveness of your favorite skincare products with a concentrated dose of essential vitamins, oils, antioxidants and powerful botanical extracts. Simply add 2-3 drops in your cream, serum, face oil or foundation to revive and nourish tired looking skin.
Over the last few months I’ve written several articles outlining the importance of starting a collagen regimen to counteract the effects of pollution, poor lifestyle choices and genetics. Collagen is an essential protein that supports muscles, bones, digestion, tendons, blood vessels and connective tissue but as it depletes, skin begins to slacken, sag and wrinkle. The best defense is an early offense which includes dietary collagen supplements like Sproos in combination with potent topical treatments.
Rodial's Collagen Drops ($89.00) diminish visible signs of aging by re-densifying, strengthening, plumping and supporting elasticity. Shake well and add 2-3 drops to cleansed skin paying particular attention to expression lines. Once dry, apply moisturizer as needed.
The formula is 30% soluble collagen with an oil-serum texture that absorbs quickly to lift and soften. I love the natural botanical scent and the healing emollients lock-in moisture to prevent peeling, sensitivity and environmental damage. There is no greasiness or residue so you can use it as primer for seamless makeup application.
I use the Glycolic Booster Drops ($89.00) to resurface and refine large pores. The formula is comprised of 10% glycolic acid and AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) – a natural exfoliant derived from sugary fruits. Once applied, the regenerating complex gently sheds surface cells to blur wrinkles and even pigmentation.
The active ingredients also alleviate inflammation and acne flare-ups while fading discoloration, dark spots and scars. In my case it helps eliminate fine bumps and roughness to make my complexion and makeup appear smooth, radiant and clear.
Another booster that will definitely amp-up your beauty routine is the Fresh Seaberry Skin Nutrition Drops ($62.00) designed to be mixed with face and eye creams for a surge of antioxidants. The luxurious blend is packed with lycopene – a tomato extract used to fight free radical damage, omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9, camellia seed, rosemary, apricot oil, sunflower and seaberry oil to retain moisture. The lightweight formula is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates with a non-sticky, dewy finish that makes my skin look fresh and glowy. It is also known to calm redness, prevent acne and rehydrate dry patches.
Mix the booster into hand cream to heal damaged cuticles and brittle nails or add a few drops in your mud mask to enhance detoxification and smooth fine lines around the eyes and mouth.
By now most people understand the importance of a good skincare routine but what about your lips? If you’ve been neglecting your pout it’s time to add one more step to your beauty routine.
The Fresh Beauty Sugar Lip Wonder Drops ($32.00) gently exfoliates and re-texturizes chapped skin with nourishing hibiscus extract. It also smooths, refines and primes but the finish is not very hydrating so I apply Rodial’s Reshape and Rejuvenate Lip Treatment ($40.00) in generous layers. This luscious formula is enriched with 24K gold to boost collagen production, firm and condition with a blend of shea butter and rose extract.
