So you’ve discovered our all-natural boosters – and now you want to know all the different ways you can use them to supercharge your skincare? We’ve got you.
First, a recap: our Pai Labs boosters collection gives you the natural actives you need to boost your existing skincare for better results. It’s that simple.
Using powerful ingredients with proven skincare benefits, we’ve created formulas that are specially designed to blend and mix with the rest of your regimen. Of course, you can also use them directly on the skin – how you use them is entirely in your hands.
With these versatile power players, the possibilities are endless. Read on for our top skincare booster hacks to take your regimen to the next level.
Give your moisturizer a sensitive side
Our skin gets stressed sometimes and that's okay. What isn't cool is not knowing what to do about it. If yours is going through a tough time, try adding a drop or two of our Tri-Mushroom Super-Soothing Booster to your moisturizer; this clever blend of mushrooms is known to help calm irritation and is our go-to for sensitised skin that needs a comforting hug. Better yet, use it direct on specific areas that are feeling particularly prickly.
Save yourself from buying a cuticle cream
You'll often find that your cuticles (the layer of skin around your nails) are prone to drying out. It's no wonder, as our hands are constantly exposed to cold weather and stripping antibacterial gels and soaps. Try using our Hyaluronic Acid Booster as a quick treatment to bump up your cuticle's moisture levels by adding a few drops and massaging in.
Double up for 24/7 skin confidence
It's a common misconception that adding Collagen into your skincare regimen will lead to smooth, plump skin. The truth is, to really target your epidermis (the thin layer of skin on the surface) and the dermis (the thicker layer of skin underneath the epidermis) you'll need a tag team of both Peptides and Collagen.
Our Peptides 5% Smoothing Booster works by stimulating regenerative proteins like collagen and elastin in the dermis, which leads to more of these proteins being produced. So, that's the groundwork done – what about the surface? Here's where our Vegan Collagen 0.9% Booster comes in. This active works to smooth, hydrate and protect the skin's surface against external factors, like free radicals. Combine the two – using Collagen in the AM and Peptides in the PM – and you've got yourself a foolproof regimen for the smoothest, plumpest skin.
Upgrade your Rosehip Oil
Both known for brightening the complexion, combining the two ingredients will only further enhance the results – and because our formula is oil-soluble, it blends like a dream. Mix a drop or two into your Rosehip Oil at night and apply to damp skin to get that all-important glow.
Create a targeted eye cream
Dark circles? Fine lines? Sensitivity? If your eye area could use a little extra help, don’t ditch your favourite eye cream in search of something stronger. Boost it instead – to create a targeted, tailored formula that better suits your needs.
For dark circles, add a drop of our Stabilised Vitamin C Booster. This hero ingredient is well known for being top of the leader board in brightening dull skin and pigmentation. For fine lines, the natural peptides in our Peptides Booster will help to plump them out for a smoother finish. Those with sensitive eyes should look to our Prebiotic Inulin Booster; by rebalancing the microbiome, Inulin reinforces your skin’s own defences, which should lead to calm and comfort long term. Finally, if your skin is looking extra dry or flaky, our Hyaluronic Acid Booster contains multiple molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid to replenish your skin's moisture across different levels.
Blend your own face serum
Wish your face serum contained Vitamin C? With our booster, it can. Serums are already the most potent step of any regimen, but if you really want to see results, you might want to add in key actives to tackle your skin concerns.
All of our all-natural boosters are suitable for blending with a serum. As with your eye cream upgrade above, you can tailor your recipe to your needs. For a youth-boosting serum, add Peptides; to even out your skin tone or tackle pigmentation, add our Vitamin C booster; and to improve your skin’s tolerance and reduce sensitivity, go for Prebiotic Inulin.
Tailor your hand cream
Our busy hands are often neglected in our skincare regimen, but they’re just as exposed as our face and neck – and should be treated in the same way.
Our nourishing hand cream for dry skin, Heavy Mettle, will keep cracked hands at bay – but you can take it up a notch too. Add a drop of our Peptides 5% Booster to inject it with skin-smoothing Hexapeptides and Pea Peptides – ideal for mature skin – or even blend in a dose of your Vitamin C 20% Booster to target dark spots with its brightening benefits. Our Prebiotic Inulin 4% Booster also makes a great addition to your existing hand cream to help keep sensitivity at bay.
Add prebiotics to every skincare step
Prebiotics are becoming quite the trend in the world of skincare, but there’s no need to start from scratch to feed your skin’s microbiome. Our Prebiotic Inulin 4% Protective Booster can be applied directly to your skin, every time you use skincare.
From reapplying SPF after your post-gym shower to slathering on your night cream after a much-needed face mask, add a drop or two of this plant-derived prebiotic first (or blend it in if you prefer). Together with organic Glycerin, it helps keep your skin barrier happy and healthy.
Give it to your skin straight
Yes, our boosters have been designed to blend in with your existing skincare – but they’re just as powerful on their own. More so, in fact. For super sensitive skin that’s feeling delicate, we recommend trying a drop at a time mixed in with your moisturizer or serum to give it a chance to get used to actives. For anyone else, feel free to dive right in.
Applying your booster neat, directly onto the skin, means you’ll feel the full benefit of the potent percentages in our all-natural formulas. And they’ve been independently patch tested on sensitive skin for full peace of mind as standard – it’s what we do.
