Target Skin Concerns with the Me+ Boosters

Superdrug Me+ Boosters group shot

When our skin is in need of something, we can usually tell by the way it looks and feels but knowing what to put on it can be a tricky task. Luckily for us, Superdrug have launched their Me+Booster range - a collection of specially created formulas each featuring a hero ingredient which targets a specific concern.

Read on to find out more about the Me+ Boosters and discover which formulas to add to your skincare routine today.

To Moisturise Your Skin:

Hyaluronic Booster

People have been singing the praises of hyaluronic acid for a while now, and with good reason!  Hyaluronic acid can attract up to 1000 times its weight in water and when applied it leaves your skin feeling moisturised and looking plumper.

Our Me+ Hyaluronic Booster, which has over a hundred 5* reviews on our website, contains 2% hyaluronic solution and will also help combat the signs of ageing, improve your skins elasticity, even out tone and texture as well as reveal a smoother, more radiant complexion.

Me+ Me+ Hyaluronic Booster 30ml £5.99 Buy Now

100% Squalane Booster

Did you know that when we’re born, 12% of our skin is made up of squalene? However, when we reach our mid-20s, production starts to decline so to ensure healthy skin, we should be topping it up.

Our Me+ Squalane Booster (which is a synthetic version of squalene) can help restore moisture into your skin, as well softening and smoothing your complexion without blocking your pores. It’s lightweight, nourishing and 100% vegan.

Supedrug Me+ Boosters squalane and lactic acid

To Refine Your Skin:

Niacinamide Zinc Booster

Are you constantly battling with oily skin? If so, this could be the booster for you! Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, is an essential nutrient found in the body, but it also has lots of great benefits for our skin too, such as controlling sebum levels.

With regular use, our Me+ Niacinamide & Zinc Booster can help even out your skin tone, minimise the appearance of pores, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and redness and improve congestion.

Me+ Me+ Niacinamide & Zinc Booster 30ml £5.99 Buy Now

To Calm Your Skin:

CBD Oil Booster

CBD oil is definitely the golden child of skincare right now! If your skin is easily irritated or often feels dry, you’re going to wonder why you haven’t tried this hero ingredient before!

Our Me+ CBD Oil Booster formula instantly absorbs into your skin, calming any redness and leaving it feeling nourished. After 4 weeks of use, your complexion should also appear more youthful.

Superdrug Me+ Niacinamide Zinc Booster, CBD Oil and Fruit Acid

To Smooth Your Skin:

Acacia- Collagen Booster

As we get older, the natural production of collagen, which supports the skins firmness, suppleness, and elasticity, starts to slow down.

Our Me+ Acacia Collagen Booster features a targeted formula that helps to hydrate, nourish, and improve the skin's condition. The formula has been specially developed with a natural plant derived collagen substitute, so as with all of Superdrug’s own brand products, it is vegan friendly. As if this wasn’t great news already, this booster will also leave your skin looking more radiant and plumper!

Peptide Booster

Time for a little science lesson. Peptides are a type of amino acid, which are the building blocks of protein. They’re found in every cell in the body and are vital to the skins structure; a common type of protein found in the body is collagen. It’s really important we keep our peptide levels up as they keep our skin firm, the texture smooth and our overall skin's health and appearance in tip top shape.

When we reach the age of 30, we lose 1% of collagen per year thereafter, so by using a specially created formula featuring peptides, our skin thinks it needs to stimulate collagen and keeps up the repairing process.

Our Me+ Peptides Booster has been created using colloidal gold and after just 4 weeks, your skin could appear firmer, look more radiant and with reduced signs of ageing.

Superdrug Me+ boosters

To Exfoliate Your Skin:

Lactic Acid (AHA) & Fruit Acid Boosters

If we don’t regularly exfoliate our skin, dead skin cells can build up on the surface leading to dull looking and dehydrated skin. So, to avoid this we need to exfoliate! The Me+ range has two exfoliating acids, Lactic Acid and Fruit Acid, also known as AHAs.

Our Lactic Acid Booster loosens the dead skin cells which sit on the skins surface which can cause dull looking skin. Our Fruit Acid Booster is fabulous for improving your skins radiance and skin elasticity. You can read more on AHAs here: The Low-Down on AHAs but it is important to know now, if you do use an AHA on your skin always follow up with an SPF as your skin can be more prone to sun damage.

Me+ Me+ AHA Fruit Acid Booster 30ml £7.99 Buy Now

Winning Combinations

If you have a specific skin concern why not try one of these Me+ combinations?

Dehydrated skin: Hyaluronic Acid + Squalane 

Congested skin: Niacinamide + Squalane 

To retexturise skin and minimise pigmentation: Lactic Acid + Niacinamide.

Support Your Body’s NAD+ with Tru Niagen®

Female dressed in active wear kicks standing on concrete wall background looking at camera

Did you know that there is a critical enzyme found in every single cell in the body that is involved in keeping all our essential functions running smoothly known as NAD+? As we age, it is important to supplement our NAD+ levels, and with the latest health supplement to arrive at Superdrug you can start topping up your levels from the very first capsule. Interested? Read on to find out everything you need to know about Tru Niagen® and how it can help support your cellular health.

What is NAD+?

Our bodies use NAD+, which is an acronym for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, every day for cellular functions such as converting food into energy, and supporting our cells against physiological stress. As you can see, it is an incredibly vital resource.

Our body’s NAD+ levels are often in a state of flux, and some of our personal behaviors such as overeating and alcohol consumption may impact NAD+ levels. Additionally, NAD+ levels are also impacted by aging, a completely natural stressor on the body.

NAD+ is important for your cellular health. One way you can support your levels is by taking the supplement Tru Niagen®.

Tru Niagen® Key Ingredient

Scientists have been studying the role NAD+ has on our health which has led to great interest in how to maintain or increase its levels. Through their research, it was discovered that supplementing with an NAD+ precursor would have a positive effect on NAD+ levels. One of these precursors is Nicotinamide riboside (NR), a novel form of Vitamin B3, and a proprietary form of NR that has been extensively studied is Niagen® - the active ingredient found in Tru Niagen®.

Three young doctors working in laboratory

Tru Niagen® Key Facts & Benefits

Tru Niagen® contains the patented and only EU authorised form of NR, it has presented no adverse side effects, and it will start generating NAD+ shortly after the first capsule is taken. So, if you are an adult and you are looking to support your cellular health then this could be the addition to your health routine you’ve been looking for.

As with any supplement or new health routine, everyone’s experiences with the supplement will vary depending on your age, diet, the amount of exercise you do and your sleeping habits. However, even if you do not feel the immediate benefits, rest assured it is working on a cellular level.

 

The key benefits are:

  • Tru Niagen® contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
  • Tru Niagen® contributes to the maintenance of normal mucous membranes.
  • Tru Niagen® contributes to the maintenance of normal skin.
  • Tru Niagen® contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
  • Tru Niagen® contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system.
  • Tru Niagen® contributes to normal psychological function.

 

Start supporting your NAD+ levels and living better today.

Male Grooming Made Simple With B.

Superdrug B. Men's range

Guys, if you don’t already have an everyday grooming routine, now is the time to get on board. You don’t need to dedicate hours in the morning to fine combing your beard or adopting a 12-step skincare routine to feel fab. In fact, with a little help from the B. Men range by Superdrug, you can keep yourself looking groomed and well maintained in just a few steps.

Skincare 101: Cleanse & Moisturise

If your idea of looking after your skin is splashing it with water and the occasional slather of moisturiser stolen from your significant other, then stop right there. Looking after your skin on a daily basis could be your ticket to youthful, brighter looking skin for longer, so listen up.

Start your day with the B. Men Charcoal Scrub. The detoxifying ingredients will leave your skin feeling smoother, prepared for shaving and oh, so fine! The inclusion of walnut shell in the formula will slough off any dead skin cells and unclog your pores, reducing the possibility of breakouts.

Once your skin is cleansed, it’s time for nourishment. Our B. Men Daily Moisturiser, which can be used on the face, neck, hands, and body, will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and hydrated for up to 12 hours. Perfect to apply first thing in the morning to prevent it from drying out in the day.

Be the Master of Your Beard

When you grow a beard, it quickly becomes the focal point of your face, so we’d always recommend keeping it looking trimmed and neat.  However, as well as regular trims it’s also important to care for the hair itself and the skin underneath - which is where a beard oil comes in! Our B. Men Beard Conditioning Oil contains a luxurious blend of natural oils, including jojoba, almond and grape seed oil, which keeps your facial hair soft and the skin underneath moisturised.

Trimmed Nails Are Happy Nails

Get your nail game where it needs to be by trimming them every couple of weeks. You don’t need to dedicate specific time to this job, you can even do it front of the tv – just remember to bin your clippings! To get a nice curve on your nail, cut at an angle with 3 or 4 small snips, this will stop you create a harsh straight line across the top.  You should also be cleaning underneath the nail and keeping on top of hangnails; this can all be done with the B. Men Grooming Kit. It features everything you'll need to keep your nails (and brows) looking slick. Plus, it comes in a sturdy case for grooming on the go!
