This month, we treated you all to an incredible Strawberry Booster by BYBI. A small bottle of magic, it does wonders for your skin (you can read all of the benefits here). Of course, if you loved this serum, then you’re sure to adore the whole BYBI Booster range too.

There are four more to choose from! Not sure which one to add to your routine? This guide might help…

For Ageing And Damaged Skin: Bakuchiol Booster

  • What Is Bakuchiol?

Nicknamed the ‘herbal botox’, bakuchiolis a natural, plant-based antioxidant that will give you smoother, firmer and plumper skin. It works just like retinol, helping your skin to produce new cells quickly, only without any of the irritation that retinol can cause. Sounds dreamy, right?

  • How Does This BYBI Booster Benefit Skin?

This BYBI booster is made up of 1% bakuchiol and 99% squalane oil. It helps your skin to produce more collagen (the protein in your skin that gives it its structure), keeping it firm and wrinkle-free.

The result? Rejuvenated and plumped skin with reduced lines and signs of tiredness.

  • How Should I Use It?

I’d recommend using this booster as part of your evening skincare ritual. Apply 2 to 4 drops straight onto your cleansed face and neck, or mix those drops into either your serum or your night cream. You’ll wake up with brighter and more even skin!

Insider Tip: Unlike retinol, bakuchiol doesn't cause sensitivity to the sun, but always make sure you wear SPF during the day to protect your complexion.

For Blemish-Prone Skin: CBD Booster

  • What Is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a skin-soothing ingredient that is full of antioxidants. It helps to calm red, inflamed and damaged skin.

  • How Does the CBD Booster Benefit Skin?

This CBD Booster is formulated with cannabidiol and hemp seed oil. Together, these ingredients help to soothe and soften skin that is irritated or stressed. If you struggle with redness, inflammation or irritation, then you need to start using this booster.

  • How Do I Use It?

Massage a couple of drops onto the areas of your skin that are irritated or apply directly onto your spots. It will sink in instantly, leaving you with calm, balanced and even-looking skin.

For Sensitive Skin: Buriti Booster

  • What Is Buriti Oil?

Pressed from the fruit of the Buriti tree, an Amazonian palm, Buriti oil is rich in vitamins A and E. It is the richest natural source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that fights against free radical damage and protects against environmental damage.

  • How Does The Buriti Booster Benefit Your Skin?

Did you know that everything from traffic fumes and cigarette smoke to UV light and artificial lighting can damage the natural protective barrier of your skin? This then causes the collagen and lipids in your skin to breakdown, leaving your complexion looking dry and dull.

By shielding your skin from environmental stressors, including pollution and UV rays, this BYBI booster protects your skin from a huge amount of damage. It helps to keep it looking bright, strong and healthy.

  • How Do I Use This BYBI Booster?

To make the most of this booster, you should use it in the morning before you go out and face the pollution, harsh weather and UV rays that await. Apply a couple of drops straight onto your cleansed skin, or mix into your serum, moisturiser or foundation.

For All Skin Types: Blueberry Booster

  • What Are The Benefits Of Blueberry Seed Oil?

Blueberry seed oil is the skin-saving ingredient you never knew you needed. It is full of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that helps to improve the look and feel of your skin, as well as omegas 3, 6 and 9. It works to hydrate, nourish and strengthen your skin.

  • How Does The Blueberry Booster Benefit Your Skin?

One of the biggest threats to the health of your skin is blue light. Did you know that 8 hours of exposure to blue light is equivalent to 20 minutes of direct exposure to the sun without any protection? Our phones, laptop, and, of course, the sun, all take their toll. The blue light they emit can weaken, inflame and even discolour your skin.

Luckily, blueberry seed oil’s most significant benefit is that it protects your skin against that blue light. It is proven to absorb and disperse blue light that would otherwise penetrate and damage your complexion.

  • How Do I Make The Most Of It?

As we are constantly exposed to blue light (let’s face it, we’re all guilty of scrolling through our phones before bed), I’d recommend using this booster morning and night. Add a couple of drops into your serum or moisturiser and apply onto your face and neck.

Whatever your skin concern, you can find the BYBI booster that works for you:

  • If you’re concerned about signs of ageing, opt for the Bakuchiol Booster.
  • If you have blemishes, choose the CBD Booster.
  • If you suffer from sensitivity, try the Buriti Booster.
  • If you’re concerned about blue light, you can’t go wrong with the Blueberry Booster.
