Achieving your skin goals can be a delicate balance. Perhaps you’re dealing with blemishes and dehydration, or dullness, or a changing climate wreaking havoc on your complexion. It can be helpful to think of skincare regimens just like recipes, with each ingredient chosen carefully to contribute to the desired outcome. With your skin goals in mind, below are some powerful, results-oriented recipes.
You want hydrated, clear skin.
When you’re dealing with both dry and blemish-prone skin, the key lies in balance. That’s why we recommend combining chemical exfoliation with hydration. In the mornings, you can keep your routine super pared down—just cleanse with the Superfood Cleanser and moisturize with the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream. At night, just add the Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner, clinically proven to minimize the appearance of pores and help keep skin clear.
You want to comfort parched skin.
Parched skin needs moisture and hydration—two different things, actually. Hydration comes in the form of ingredients like hyaluronic acid, whereas moisture provides the emollient touch needed to lock water in. This nourishing combination of products delivers both. In the morning, use the moisturizing Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil and the super soothing and hydrating Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream. At night, use the oil again, but follow it with the ultra-brightening and hydrating Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask. Together, they provide the one-two punch skin needs.
You want a lightweight moisture boost.
Permission to keep it simple. Give skin a non-greasy dose of serious moisture with the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil. The hero ingredients were carefully chosen—prickly pear seed oil is both hydrating and soothing, but doesn’t feel heavy, and maqui is extremely antioxidant rich, and helps protect skin.
You want to quench dehydrated skin.
Give dehydrated skin a serious boost with the Superfood Firm + Brighten Serum—a potent blend of hydrating hyaluronic acid, firming peptides, and brightening vitamin C. Then, apply the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream, which is full of hyaluronic acid, superfoods, and antioxidants. It feels light but delivers the moisture dehydrated skin needs.
You want to glow by morning.
At night, sweep the Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner across cleansed skin to help slough off dead skin cells, promote skin cell turnover, and brighten skin. Follow with the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask—it uses THD ascorbate, a potent, stable form of vitamin C, to brighten dull skin and even skin tone while you sleep.
You want to soothe wind-chapped skin.
One quick way to calm and hydrate element-impacted skin? The Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist. Spritz this ultra-fine mist generously, to both hydrate and moisturize the skin (thanks to TEWL (Trans-Epidermal Water Loss)-preventing shea butter) and then layer on the rich and nourishing Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream.
You want to refresh your skincare routine.
Easy answer—you need the new Discovery Set, which includes our Superfood Cleanser, Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner, Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream, and Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask. Together, these products work to nourish, hydrate, and brighten skin.
