If the thought of adding one more product to your beauty routine sends shivers up and down your spine, you’re definitely not alone. Skincare regimes can be overwhelming and confusing with the bounty of steps, products and techniques popping up lately. We definitely get it, but if there’s just one more product that you should think about adding to your regimen, it’s this one.
The new Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster ($65) is all about enhancing your current skincare regime, whatever it may consist of, to help create stronger, healthier and more resilient skin. Essentially, it’s designed to improve the upper surface layer of the skin (aka the stratum corneum), so that your other actives can work their way down deeper and more effectively.
The formula helps to boost the skin’s natural defenses by combining a probiotic complex which promotes the growth of healthy microflora and plant extracts to strengthen the natural skin barrier and its ability to retain moisture. The best part? Anyone can use it. It’s designed for any skin type and any age. When your skin is healthy to begin with, everything else you put on it will work more effectively. Elizabeth Arden actually put that notion to the test, and the results are quite impressive. They found that there was a dramatic improvement in smoothness, radiance, hydration and reduced irritation in women who added Superstart to their regular Prevage regime. In fact, 95% of the women who tested it out felt as if it boosted the effectiveness of their current skincare products.
So, where exactly does it fit into your regime? The lightweight serum goes on right before any of your other actives—serums, moisturizers or treatments. The texture is similar to a serum, so as long as you think of it like the first step to boost the effectiveness of everything afterwards, you’re on the right track. With the ability to improve everything you’re already using (and your skin, of course), perhaps adding one more product doesn’t sound so bad after all.
