Have you heard about the new skincare trend that appeared last year? The concept of boosters was quickly adopted by many Western and Korean brands. And even the skeptics agreed that these products are much more than just a marketing trick. If you are new to boosters, have a quick read and we'll tell you what they are and how to use them.
What is a booster?
Boosters are products with a very high concentration of active ingredients, intended for customization of normal skincare products, for example, creams. In cosmetology (including injection) boosters have been actually used for many years. For a long time, they've been a prerogative of specialists: it's risky for any brand to market products that require strict adherence to instructions. The first well-known home use boosters were vitamin C and hyaluronic acid which could be also used solo.
- Wrinkle - peptide,
- Whitening - vitamin C derivative,
- Cica - cassoside,
- Firming - hyaluronic acid,
- Pore - catechin.
Who needs boosters?
The quick answer is obvious: people who like multilayered and complex skincare. If your skin is undemanding and you have been managing well with only a few products in your routine, then the fuss of mixing products with boosters will only complicate your life rather than vice versa. When using boosters, as well as any other professional grade products, you have to adjust, calculating the optimal concentration and finding out what combinations will work better.
On the other hand, if the army of skincare products in your bathroom only grows, but the results quickly stop satisfying you, well-chosen boosters may well bring the relief. With their help, you can turn a "summer" version of the usual product into a more intense "winter" one, and also arrange more intensive treatments when your skin needs them. To do this, you don't have to run to the beautician or buy a bunch of new expensive products - just mix in a booster.
Not everyone needs higher doses of hyaluronic acid or activation of collagen production, but if you are convinced that certain ingredients give your skin the desired result, go for a concentrated booster safely. Considering that you only need a few drops, even with the daily use, the investment will pay off.

There' a good question about the compatibility of cosmetics of different brands: not all of us buy skincare sets. And sometimes even products of the same brand, but from a different line, cannot work together well. However, when it comes to boosters, they are created specifically for the addition to other products and the risk is minimized due to the dominant substance. A good rule of thumb is to add a booster to a product that contains the right substance from the very beginning.
