Mary Kay Clinical Solutions® boosters aren’t a replacement for the products in your existing skin care routine – they offer advanced solutions for specific skin care concerns with potent formulas featuring powerhouse ingredients.

Take your skin care to new heights with potent, patent-pending Mary Kay Clinical Solutions® boosters. Each booster is comprised of a highly potent dose of scientifically acclaimed skin care ingredients. These easy-to-incorporate formulas are specially designed to beautifully complement your current skin care routine.

  • Mary Kay Clinical Solutions® C + Resveratrol Line-Reducer
  • HA + Ceramide Hydrator

VISIBLY REDUCE WRINKLES WITH DERMOCOSMETIC ACTIVE INGREDIENTS.
Take wrinkle reduction to the next level with Mary Kay Clinical Solutions® C + Resveratrol Line-Reducer for our highest concentrations of vitamin C and resveratrol. As your skin experiences repetitive facial movements, sun exposure, natural aging and other factors, lines and wrinkles can be expected. This targeted solution supports skin with a potent blend of vitamin C, resveratrol and acetyl hexapeptide-8.

The Ingredient Boost

 Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)

A heroic antioxidant widely recognized for its ability to fight the visible signs of skin aging, high-concentration vitamin C works around the clock for your skin (when applied morning and night as directed).

  • Vitamin C supports skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin proteins to help improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • A strong antioxidant, it protects* against the harmful effects of UV- and pollution-induced free radicals on the skin, which can contribute to premature lines and wrinkles. And it’s clinically shown to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by photodamage.

Resveratrol
Similar to vitamin C, resveratrol is a highly potent antioxidant valued not only for its ability to fight visible signs of skin aging but also protect the skin’s surface.

  • Resveratrol supports skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin proteins and helps defend against collagen breakdown.
  • It also helps protect* against photodamage, which can contribute to premature lines and wrinkles.

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8

Skin-restoring acetyl hexapeptide-8 is a special peptide designed to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

  • Acetyl hexapeptide-8 helps diminish signals that over time lead to lines and wrinkles.

BOOST HYDRATION WITH DUAL-ACTION HYALURONIC ACID.
Savor each drop of these powerhouse hydrators in one skin-loving formula. When your skin’s moisture is out of balance, its barrier can become compromised. Support skin’s barrier with Mary Kay Clinical Solutions® HA + Ceramide Hydrator, a unique blend that targets three critical hydration factors.

The Ingredient Boost

 

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) (sodium hyaluronate)

An increasingly popular powerhouse humectant, hyaluronic acid is known to bind more than 1,000 times its weight in water, meaning it holds onto water molecules to keep skin looking plump and healthy.

Two forms of hyaluronic acid take a dual-action approach to combating dry skin.

  • Low molecular weight HA penetrates the stratum corneum – the outermost layer of the skin – to directly deliver critical moisture and help plump skin from within.
  • High molecular weight HA sits on the skin’s surface to help protect and plump from the outside.

Ceramide

As a critical component of the stratum corneum, ceramide is essential for the retention of skin moisture.

  • Skin-mimicking ceramide helps improve skin hydration and support normal barrier function.

 

Verbena Officinalis Extract (impacts natural moisturizing factor or NMF)

Increased natural moisturizing factor (NMF) is not only known to improve skin hydration but also skin barrier function – a necessity when it comes to protecting your body from environmental stressors and water loss.

Our chosen plant extract (verbena officinalis) supports skin’s natural production of NMF. NMF components absorb water from the atmosphere and combine with their own water content, allowing the outermost layers of the stratum corneum to stay hydrated despite external factors.

APPLYING YOUR BOOSTERS

Like a wellness shot for your skin, these dermocosmetic boosters combine concentrated doses of some of science’s most acclaimed ingredients in order to unleash skin’s full potential with every precious drop. These standalone dermocosmetic products can be incorporated into your skin care routine regardless of whether you use the Mary Kay Clinical Solutions® Retinol 0.5 Set. Once you’ve determined which booster is right for you, add it seamlessly into your routine.
