Discover how to balance your complexion with this customizable chemistry set for skin.
CHEM 101 may not have been our favorite subject in school, but we could never get enough of concocting our very own powerful potions in the lab with droppers, beakers, and close adult supervision. So when we heard about the new set of ready-to-mix Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Boosters, we jumped back into school mode to study up on the innovative elixirs that deliver serious results. As in a D.I.Y. science experiment, you can add a few drops of these concentrates to your favorite skin care or makeup, or apply directly to the skin for an instant boost of radiance, hydration, or purification. Here, we examine the set that’s way more fun than chemistry class ever was. Case in point: no precise measuring, no pop quizzes, no spontaneous combustion. Just fresh, flawless skin. RENEE TRILIVAS
This trio of pro-strength concentrates targets dullness, dryness, and congestion, transforming the look and feel of skin, whether used alone or mixed with skin care or makeup.
Because your skin changes on a daily basis, you need to adjust your skincare routine accordingly. These water-free serums help treat your skin to exactly what it needs.
THE KEY INGREDIENTS
THE RADIANCE BOOSTER
Linoleic acid: helps promote the natural regeneration of skin cells.
Pyruvic acid: diminishes the appearance of dark spots.
Ellagic acid: reduces signs of photo aging.
THE HYDRATION BOOSTER
Hyaluronic chronospheres: adds deep moisture.
Watermelon extract: helps fight free radical damage.
Centella asiatica: delivers antiaging and healing properties.
THE PURIFYING BOOSTER
Willow bark: clears clogged pores.
Witch hazel: helps heal damaged skin.
Lactic acid: chemically exfoliates and smooths.
Apply the concentrate directly to the skin, or mix a few drops with your serum, moisturizer, or liquid makeup for a supercharged boost, day or night.
Use all three concentrates daily: Smooth the Purifying booster over your forehead, nose, and chin to minimize the look of pores; apply the Hydration concentrate over the cheeks; and spread the Radiance elixir over the rest of the face for healthy, youthful-looking skin.
